All donations are greatly appreciated
My stock is UNRESTRICTED (commercial or otherwise). Can be used to create stock, CSS backgrounds, stamps, icons, avatars, widget backgrounds, for brushes, wallpapers, manipulations, collages, digital art, traditional reference, etc. etc. Notification is optional! It is nice to receive credit, in order to advertise my site. If Notified, I'll look at the art and add it to my fave folder (it is a feature widget) that is for those who use my stock!
Some of my stock has been donated to my site. Feel free to notify the donator of use (in the artist description), albeit, sadly, karanua who has made several donations has passed away. I have his permission to post the stock via notes safely stored in my note folder.
DO NOT HOTLINK! Hotlinking steals bandwidth... my downloads, if not completely disabled, will now cost points, albeit the stock is still unrestricted.

I'm all he has WIP I Am All He Has:
I am the complete collection of one man's worldly possessions. I am all he has.
I am his placebo, without me he'd feel empty and lost, but since I am all he has, he doesn't mind risking his life to cross the street on a busy Thursday afternoon.
I am the portrait of his dead son. I am the bullet that killed his boy. I am the hate that provoked the bullet. I am the table in the morgue his maimed body was dumped on. I am the emptiness in the eyes of his shooter. I am the police files never sent. I am the rage and despair felt. I am the marriage the sorrow ruined. I am the taste of tears.
I am the used clothes he spent his last cent on. I am someone else's trash. I am torn. I am stained. I am ruined. I am uncouth. I am covered in crass slogans he doesn't agree with. I am his acceptance of failure.
I am his ex-wife's broken necklace, which he is taking to the pawnshop. I am his lost love. I am the letters he sent to each address of hers he knew, plead
Castle Of Cards Quote Challenge Winners
Awarded 75 points from :iconmom-espeace: and Features from :iconthestockwarehouse:
For this work, it's all about the skilled use of textures and elements, seamless blending and the harmonious color palette. The work also fits the quote well. Fine piece!
Awarded 50 points by :iconwdwparksgal-stock: and Features from :iconthestockwarehouse:
The colors and blending of this piece are so very striking. Too, one wouldn't think to use a giant orange as a main vocal piece but with the textures added and skilled use of perspective
it all works. Well done!
And in no particular order:

Love the quote here! The rain texture's a good one. What particular

"Dinner" by :icontheheek:
Fun concept with a nice surreal vibe, too. I also like how the image is made photo-like by the distressed frame.
devNEWS Interview Series #4 Inayashah
:icondevnews: DevNews :icondevnews:
Welcome to the Fourth in a Series of Interviews from DevNews!
InayatShah is a photographer and senior member of DeviantART, and has been a distinguished and valued member of the site for six-years.
1) What brought you to DA? How did you get so involved with the community?
A friend of mine, suggested that I join, he told me that it was a community for artists and I would learn a lot. I joined DA and found it really was a community rather than many photography / art social sites which are merely a collection of individuals without any really meaningful interaction.
Getting involved or involved with the community: I think if one is open, the community draws you in as muc

© and ™ Policy Official dA Policy
Additional unrestricted (commercial use or otherwise) stock at TheStockWarehouse and WDWParksGal ~ in a stock folder at the top left of the folders. Not all devs in that folder marked as stock but are. Some are Disney Characters, which cannot be used in prints!
Also, AreteStock posts Stock on PhotoBucket
Please do not repost the stock on a "Paid Download" site, since the stock is free.
Este stock no tiene restricciones de uso dentro dA puede ser utilizado para impresiones, páginas web y/o para hacer stock.
DISCLAIMER ~ Disney Characters are ©ed by The Disney Corporation and CANNOT be used in Prints for any reason!! They are fully copyrighted/trademarked
Amazingly, however, the Disney Castle, buildings, rides, attractions and resort pictures CAN be used in prints. dA has approved such prints for myself and AreteEirene, and we have sold a few!
For OTHER UNRESTRICTED STOCK!
Stock From Stock Collection of Providers:
Slug22 states "Over 1000 items all free and unlimited enjoy."
(Only) the "Unrestricted" Folder at AreteStock, paintresseye presterjohnstock and MD-Arts allow use to make stock if properly credited, and presterjohn1 states, "......all stock in the gallery is completely unrestricted, though as a courtesy I would appreciate a link back for credit and a note/fave to let me know how it was used for my own curiosity." ALSO, nitch-stock allows stock to be made into backgrounds, brushes, etc. as long as the site is credited and notified and stock artists abide by these Short and Sweet Guidelines!
Cynnalia-Stock allows her unaltered photographs to be made into pre-made stock backgrounds. pranile states "...my free stock you make another stock."!
Recent Additions (quotes indicate deviant's own words verbatim):
"As long as appropriate credit is given, my stock can be used for anything (new-horizon-stock)": "Just-A-Little-Knotty My stock is unrestricted for artists to use. I allow pre-made backgrounds, but not tubes, brushes etc.":
"I allow my stock for premades, but for tubes/clear-cuts I would like to be asked first. There are a few exceptions too, but they are described on my profile Dan da-joint-stock":
The aforementioned Stock Artists DO ALLOW their stock to be made into Stock!
For Stock Resources, check Stock Resources Groups Directory for a Directory of Resource Groups.
UNRESTRICTED USE STOCK ACCOUNTS If you want to be part of this list, with its unrestricted stocks, post in the comments I'll add.
