Check out the first two installments of this really fantastic guide:
Providing Stock+Resources - A Beginners Guide Pt01The following five part guide is a collection of tips and tricks for stockers and those who would like to become stockers but don't know where to start - based on my personal experence. While reading, keep in mind that most of what is outlined below are guidelines and not a set of rules you never ever cross - there are exception to everything but the very first rule (I would say copyright is not debatable, after all, you expect others to respect yours, too). Also, this has gotten very long and still, I feel I forgot stuff... So if you have any additions you'd like to see in here, feel free to comment!
>> What you will find in this guide:
Part 01: Introduction & Note on Copyright [you are reading it]
Part 02: What should I put online? incl. Subject Choice | Dealing with Abuse | Technical Basics for Stock Images | Lighting setup | Tips and tricks on getting the most out of your camera |
Providing Stock+Resources - A Beginners Guide Pt02This is Part 2 of Providing Stock+Resources - A Beginners Guide. It is aimed at resource providers new and old - I'm trying to give some tips and pointers based on my experience both as a stocker and a photomanipulator. If you have anything to add (maybe you have an example from your own gallery I could insert - pretty please?), feel free to comment, I still feel like I forgot soooo much Any other comments are of course welcome as well. I hope this helps at least some

Librarian's Choice - Closed! Judging has begun! And the contest is closed! We got some amazing entries in this time around! I hope to have the judging results back within a week at the latest. That will also give me some time to post a new exclusive back for winners to choose from, as well as letting out other prize donators figure some stuff out!
Also, just FYI - we seem to have lost 2 of our prize donators (and one entrant) into the Deviation in storage/Account on hiatus ether. If you know A-Wakefield/Mandies-stock in the RW, can you have them contact me to know if they will be back in time to be judged/donate as promised?
Thanks so much guys!!!
So it might not be common knowledge, but we of Hiddenyume-stock love books. Love them I tell you! No really, of the four main models on the account, one of us is a published author, two are aspiring authors, and one is totally a sexy librarian for her day job.
We’re fans of everything from the classics of sci-fi like H.G. Wells and Mary Shelley to classical litera
Summer, Sun and Fun - Challenge- Update Theme : Summer, Sun & Fun - Challenge
I returned from my holidays to the Canary Islands. I brought back some stocks, but not so many, I relaxed a lot and enjoyed the sun and the silence in my hotel. I´m sad that the week is over, but it was so wonderful for me. I will post some new stocks soon. Most I took from the dunes of Maspalomas (Gran Canaria), the sea and plants
And one word to my theme of this challenge. Please, your entry have not to be a funny work (I read a conversation under one work, so I want to clearify this). You can also create a work with a silent and a moment full of harmony or something like that. I haven´t given you all fun-stocks, so I think everything is possible to create and fun means for ev
Around the Community
Introducing Improved CommentsWith over 1.5 million comments posted per day, deviantART's commenting system provides the backbone for fostering relationships across the globe. Whether mentoring one another, providing artistic support, or checking in with a friend, commenting is one of the site's most used and loved features.
To highlight this vital aspect of community interaction and provide more control around conversations, we’re proud to release the first in a series of improvements to comments.
The Featured comments option allows deviants to showcase the most meaningful or interesting feedback they’ve received — helping those comments stand out from the rest. When someone leaves a feature-worthy reply on one of your deviations, you can now highlight that comment from the pencil menu.
Featured comments on deviations are highlighted and denoted with a special label.

Site Update: SaveDotArtIn our continuous effort to improve the deviantART experience, we're publishing weekly Site Updates to keep members informed and to gather feedback. Below is a list of recent changes to the site, bug fixes, and feedback that was brought up by members in the last Site Update.
Two years ago, deviantART embarked on the beginning of a long process of applying to manage .ART, a new top-level domain that we believe belongs to the art community as a whole.
While the application process is still ongoing, we are committed to the .ART domain being one for artists, by artists. We have partnered with e-flux to take a stand for the future of art online — and we need your help to do so.

Hints and Tips #2 : Water SplashesWater Splashes:
Creative Use Of Water In Macro
In this tutorial I'll show you an easy way to turn a simple bottle into
a tool for creating stunning water splashes in your pictures.
An empty dish washing liquid bottle or shampoo bottleA lens to shoot from distance OR you risk water damage
Preparing the bottle
Open your empty bottle. Clean it with water until no more soap bubbles are building.
Now fill it up with water.
Set a short exposure time to „freeze“ the water in motion.
Press on the bottle to release the water, while taking photos.
Be sure the water does not get inside your camera.
Technique #1 – Moment of Impact
Josh is a professional digital artist from the United States. He enjoys fantasy and surrealism and his works are heavily influenced by pop culture. His art really pops off the page with bright color palettes and dynamic shapes. His comical series titled "ModHero" is a collection of pop art super hero portraits depicting the characters through "classy, sometimes thoughtful vector art" as the artist explains. Take a moment to visit this unique artist's gallery today!
