Trying to save up...

Etsy, Threadless, etc.

Helloooo!  So, I've got 5 weddings to go to this year (oh my) and 3 of them require travel.  I am trying all I can think of to find extra funds, as I'd really like to share all my friends' special days with them!  Here are the online things I've got set up, please have a look :heart:

I just updated my Etsy with new listings, please take a look and send it to anyone you think might be interested:

If you don't have money, but do have a Threadless account, I submitted a design and I need votes to get it printed, please (if you like it) give it a 4 or 5:

I've got many Premium Content deviations here, grab some of those if you find them useful!

What Makes Stock Rock for You? kuschelirmel

What Makes Stock Rock for You? With kuschelirmel!

You've been on this account for 9 years. Wow! You do quite a few different forms of art. What got you into photomanipulation?

Before I found dA - must've been around 2002/03 - I was into learning HTML and wanted to try to create my own website to do so. But with a website come graphics (back then, css was not really on the table yet, so you had to do everything with images and mouse over effects in java or something - I can't even remember it's been so long). So my boyfriend suggested I try Photoshop. I soon found out I could do more than make buttons: signatures, banners, wallpapers... When I arrived on dA, the biggest revelation for me was that I did not have to restrict myself to "useful things", but could make art just for the sake of it. It changed a lot(!) for me and I have been hooked on manips ever since. Actually, I bought my first camera to finally be able to take stock photos myself and now photography is one of my hobbies, too :aww:

What sort of stock inspires you? Does the stock gallery on dA provide that inspiration, or do you look to other stock sources?

That's a tough question because I can be inspired by a lot of things, from model stock to objects and from animal stock to plants. I guess it depends on my mood a lot. But I think in general, I can say I am drawn to the more unusual stock (even though I don't always manage to use it): for example, weird costumes, poses, angles in models; exotic locations; series of images that could be put together to form something new and big yet fitting (for example different buildings of the same style, stuff like that)... I have a dislike for model stock where in all poses of a series the model is shot from the front and looks straight at the camera. While these shots can be useful, I find myself looking for stock where I can put something in the model's line of sight.
I usually stick to dA stock for three reasons: one, I don't have so much time to search high and low; two, I mass-download and only a small fraction gets actually used which for pay stock sites would mean a lot of money spent for little outcome; three, I find that dA caters more to manippers than other stock sites do because stockers here want to see what is done with their images and see them used in cool images. While on other stock sites, photographers upload to get some money for their stock and usually don't see what is done with it. They just know who their clients are: professionals who use their stock for advertising, book & cd covers, webdesign, editorials etc. It's a different sort of use they cater to, one where the person using the pic probably wants to have as little work left with it as possible. On dA, we're "more artsy" and looking for that odd pose rather than how little work we will have with the pic.

You were a PM CV, and you're also the provider of really great stock. This gives you a great insight to multiple parts of deviantArt. What types of stock and resources are photomanipulators looking for, and does dA do a good job of providing those?

I think in principle, dA stockers certainly do a good job at providing stock. As I said above: they want to see their stock used so they try to cater to the needs of the manip community and thankfully also beyond. What I mean is that while often, the same kind of images that are currently en vogue, will pop up all over the stock gallery, there are thankfully always also other images on display that are used seldomly by manippers but are still provided for the odd user who might need something out of the ordinary. If someone asks me if they should stop providing stock because they feel their stock is rarely used, I will always encourage them to keep going: it's the diversity that is great about dA and a unique quality of dA stock. We have people from all over the world contributing to the stock collection - you can get anything from sci-fi stock to temple ruins, from polar bears to tropical fish. You won't find that anywhere else and certainly not so freely given as it is here. I sincerely hope the manip community is aware of this and will remember to abide by the few rules most stockers here have when using their stock to keep it that way.

Over the years you've doubtless seen trends come and go. Do you see trends in stock coming from trends in photomanips, or do trends in photomanip come from those in stock? What is hot right now on the PM scene?

I'm afraid, I don't really know what is hot at this moment - I haven't been online all that much this summer and just got back from a two week vacation ^^; However, from experience I can say that stock will influence the manip community more than the other way around. Most dA manippers don't shoot their own stock, so they will use what is offered, so when a popular model stock hits the gallery and one or two manippers who are visible in the community use it, others see it and use it and it thus goes viral on dA. The more a stock image is used the more it is visible and the more it is used again (often in similar ways, unfortunately). Of course other stockers see what is currently high up on the list for manippers, but jumping on that bandwagon is harder in that you may not have the resources (location, costume, model, etc) to do something similar. Plus, until you can jump the wagon it might have moved on already. So it doesn't make much sense to chase after a certain theme in this way for stockers. What you can see is that the overall quality (on a technical level, like clear pictures, no cut off limbs, usable angles etc) has been constantly going up, because that is what will get used more and that stockers will cater to the seasons and holidays ahead of time so people will be able to use their stock. For example, Halloween stock comes online in late September, early October. If you put it online on Halloween, it is too late to be used in a Halloween manip this year.

What have I done? by kuschelirmelWild Horses by kuschelirmelPleased to meet you by kuschelirmel

What are some of your favorite photomanipulated pieces? For these pieces, did you start with a stock you just HAD to use, or did you have an idea first and then go looking for stock to fit it? Is that how you typically work?

I often see a bunch of stock images that "click" in my head: I can see them together and start from there. It's easier than trying to recreate a specific idea because for a specific idea you need specific stock and that is often hard to find. Not because it doesn't exist, but because the search term you are using may not have been used by the stocker - either because they didn't bother with keywords (bad!!!) or simply because you can't think of that keyword that will bring the right stock. In recent years, with working full time, I have very rarely tried to create something specific because of this. It just takes a lot of time that I don't really have ^^;

For example (my last three faves):
Dreamwalking by kuschelirmel I stumbled over Ruine 2 by Civetta70 and loved the angle
Lost Without You by kuschelirmel I saw the girl stock and just had to use it Never the Bride 2 by rangercookiestock
Beneath the Tulips by kuschelirmel was done because I saw the tulip stock Bug's View of Pink Tulips by MogieG123

As both a photomanipulator and a stocker, do you feel like the stock gallery is continually getting better, or have we hit a sort of creative plateau?  What do you think the stock community can do to improve?

I think it's always getting better :) Every time I catch myself thinking "there's just nothing new" (or something along that line), I stumble upon something to prove me wrong ;)
Just never stop uploading even the strangest of images (or especially those :D) and keep doing what you do in terms of fostering the community and all will be great! There is hardly any other gallery on dA where people are this welcoming and encouraging to newbies as in stock & resources. And hardly anywhere else do you see so many community activities (contests, features, interviews, how-to articles,...) as in stock and resources. So keep it up! :heart:

Thank you so much to Jasmin for doing this interview!  Go show her some love on both of her accounts, kuschelirmel and kuschelirmel-stock!

How to Stock 5- Gallery Organization

Tue Sep 16, 2014, 6:00 PM

Welcome to "How to Stock," a short series of articles on how to do some stock basics. We'll ask the big names in stock for their tips and opinions on how to get the best out of your stock shoot!

This fifth article is the special Stock & Resources Project Educate Week article.  For this article, I asked SenshiStock and kirilee just one question about their galleries.  Let's see what they said!

Call Me Maybe - Pose Reference by SenshiStock Drawing Reference 1 by kirilee

How do you keep your gallery organized, concise, and well-representing of you?

:iconsenshistock: SenshiStock says:

There's a few methods which I employ to try to manage the gallery as it gets larger. First, I use a series of folders to help sort poses into categories. There are a lot of folders, and sometimes images fit into more than one folder. For example, I might have a pose where I'm using a sword, but I'm also kneeling. This image would go both in the Sit and Kneel Drawing Poses folder, as well as the Sword Weapon Drawing Reference folder. This cross pollination of poses helps artists narrow down their search but also allows for some spontaneous discovery of poses that might inspire an idea.

I break down a description of each folder and what types of images go into it in this really long guide.

When I post an image, I try to brainstorm keywords. There's a lot of space for keywords in the submission form, so I try to come up with synonyms and phrases that artists may search for when looking for the pose I am posting. I also try to think about what kind of emotions the image portrays and include those, too. I tend to be a little playful with my titles, but it's also a good idea to put into the title what's actually in the picture. Something like IMG_85925.jpg is not going to be as searchable or helpful as "Young Sad Girl in a Big Blue Dress near the Ocean" (if that even would fit, haha).

When I do a photoshoot, I usually take anywhere from 100-400 images per shoot. After I transfer the files to my computer, I break the shoot up into folders with themes. This helps me space out the stock as I upload it to ensure I'm posting a variety of stock over time. For example, if I post an archer image with a bow and arrow, the next image I post might be something in the air with some extreme perspective, followed by a cute sitting pose. Mixing up the stock I submit keeps watchers engaged and interested and gains more exposure for each piece. I try to submit one to three new stock images every few days, but sometimes I have to space it out more due to being behind on messages. I used to upload dozens of images at once as soon as a shoot was done, but now I find that it's much better to focus on having an even, consistent flow rather than dumping a lot of images at once then going long spans with nothing. It keeps people more interested in the stock I'm presenting and allows each submission a better chance to be noticed in the many messages I assume most watchers get every day.

In each submission, I try to include some thumbnails to other, similar poses. So for that last, cute sitting pose I talked about, I'd go through the gallery and find 4 or 5 other cute sitting poses to thumb in the new submission to help people browse if the post I'm posting that day isn't quite what they need. I didn't do this with older images in the gallery, but the more I do it, the more it builds something of my own 'More Like This' to help artists navigate my large gallery.

Sometimes if I have a a few images that are quite similar, I will upload them as a set or a pack. The Choke Pack is an example of a few images that are visually pretty similar, though each has its own unique characteristics and a few have a different perspective. When I take photos, I try to think about what angles people might want. I don't always remember to do this, but when I do, I try to include those 'turn around' images of a pose in a set, like this staff pose.

Some other examples of similar poses in packs are this sneaking set and this table flipping set. When you do a shoot there are lots of "bad" photos that don't come out as you planned. But these photos might still have something in them that's perfect for what an artist needs! These images to me were not really different or strong enough to stand alone in the gallery, so putting them together into a convenient pack helps me stay organized and hopefully also gives the artist additional options.

Packs of similar images also makes the gallery look a bit more diverse and interesting because they are packed up together rather than spanning across one or many rows in the gallery. If you have or end up building a large enough pile of resources, watchers will appreciate being able to find what they need in a more concise way rather than having to scroll though lots of similar images which may not be what they need.

Sometimes with a pack, I will still upload a 'highlighted' image on its own because I find it to be particularly interesting or strong. Some examples of this can be seen in the stock I did with jademacalla. We did a lot of different themes during the shoot, but something like this over throw pose stood out as particularly awesome even though we did many others like it. By separating out this one image, I am highlighting what I find to be the strongest of the bunch, but not eliminating the other images which might still serve use to someone. If no particular image stands out as suitable for a solo submission, but still looks to me like the coolest one in the set, sometimes I will just make it bigger in the preview.

I think that just about covers the basics of how I try to organize things. If anyone has any questions, feel free to poke me. :giggle:

:iconkirilee: kirilee says:

I've been doing stock for 5 years now, and it has truly been a trial and error situation in getting my gallery the way it is now.
I have learnt a few things that work for me- especially since I don't like doing packs because I personally feel that doing single images allows viewers to focus on one image at a time rather than trying to process 2 - 8 all at once.

I use my folders wisely. If a costume fits under two sort of general categories, I put the images in both AS WELL as going into features. This allows for the viewers to quickly access certain stock shoots if they like, or just browse my full gallery.

I also try not to bombard my watchers with images (key word is TRY). I always try to put up only clear images which do not look very similar to any if the others (ie. the exact same pose with as lightly different facial expression). I also learnt that you should only put up photos that you are happy with and "brand" you in a positive light. What I mean by this is I always ask myself these questions before I upload an image. They are:
- is this going to be useful for an artist?
- is this an image that I am happy for a stranger who doesn't know me to see and use?
- is this an image that I am happy for my 86 year old grandmother to see of me?

If the answer is yes to all three, I upload. If not, I don't.
The last thing you want is an image you to upload to come back and bite you in the butt (and it will!). It also helps with decluttering :)

I guess those are my tips :)

Thank you very much, Sakky and Kirilee!
And thanks for reading, everybody!  Those were some long answers, but by the nature of the question, they needed to be! I hope you learned something you can go put into practice.  Look for the next article soon!

Lanny Tagged Me, as She is a Butt. Cassy too.

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 24, 2014, 4:00 PM

Please go spam Elandria  I don't care with what.


1. If Ronald MacDonald arrived at your party would you cry or would you ask for a macn'cheese?
I would be very confused because I am not having a party, and if I did, he wouldn't be invited.  I would kick him out because he'd knock my expensive things over with his giant shoes.E

2. If you saw a £50 note half hidden under a pile of fresh dog poo would you pick it up anyhow?
Yes. I'm not scared.  Also I would wish it were a $50 bill, but would take it to the bank and trade it in with the crappy exchange rate.  I'd get about $5 so it would be worth it.

3. Raisins or Sultanas?
Sultanas.  Fun fact: if your golden raisins are yellow, they have been bleached with lye and sulfur.  Go for ones labled as sultanas, that are just slightly lighter than regular raisins.  Also did you know currants are grapes too?

4. Enterprise or Millennium Falcon?
Millennium Falcon!
I have a thing for you related to this:

5. If Lady Gaga dropped her funky purse, would you give it back to her or would you make off with it and sell it on ebay?
I'd give it back to her because my conscience wants me to be poor.

6. You are elected to be the next President of the US, who would you add to your "list" of "people to get rid of" first?
You know I can't answer that...

7. You are elected to be King/Queen of the Universe, what would your first ruling be?
Pluto gets to be a planet again.

8. Jack Frost, or Queen Elsa?
Like from those movies?  Neither.

9. Your perfect job is...
I always said I wanted to be an ice cream taste tester.

10.  Low fat Thursdays or Full fat Fridays?   (I'm craving steak and chips, don't judge me!)
Full-fat always.  Things marketed as low-fat are usually very bad for you, and a diet of only low-fat foods (even naturally low-fat ones like veggies) is not so great for you either.


And now Cassy-Blue has tagged me.  Please spam her as well. ^^

1. What's your favorite book
The big ol' Complete Works of Poe my dad has.

2. Would you rather spend the weekend at the beach or the weekend in the woods?

3. The song you hate the most?
I don't want to think about it, it'll get stuck in my head.  Songs from Grease get stuck in my head a lot, and I fucking hate that movie and, therefore, the songs from it, but those aren't my most hated songs.

4. Would you rather be trapped in the Louvre or trapped in the Everglades?
Louvre.  Also, I've been reading The Three Musketeers, and they keep saying the king lives in the Louvre, and it's really confusing because I'm like "the museum??"

5. If you could play an instrument what would it be?

6. What's the weirdest food you've ever had?
Don't really know...probably something I didn't even know I was eating.  That reminds me of when I was in Germany, and I was ordering a meal with meatballs, and I asked the waiter what kind of meat it was and he said "Beef, no, pork, like hamburger," so I just said, "Uhhh...ok I'll have that"

7. You see a big bug. It's not a cockroach, what do you do?
Step on it.  I'd step on it twice if it were a cockroach.

8. If you were a mad scientist what would you use your science powers for?
More internet cat videos.

9. Star Trek or Star Wars or Never?
