Fantastic Stock And Where To Find it - Feature 32 I've been making a collection of some of the brilliant stock artistsworks that I have come across. It started off as stock I can't providemyself so I look for other peoples so I can suggest them. The way Ichoose is quite odd, when I see a stock image I have an instant image inmy head of what I could do or create out of that piece of stock. Theimage also has to be crystal clear and easily altered.Anyway, Check them out, I'm sure you'll agree, just click on their deviation.

Necks for anatomy practiceI need to see loads of examples before I can get something. So here's loads of necks doing the weird necky things that necks do.To get what's going on with the tangle of muscles and tendons catch necks in action. Watch people in cafes. Pause TV. (Buffy the Vampire Slayer has particularly good lighting for drawing.) Then check out how cartoonists simplify the confusion. Maybe even check out some anatomy to see what's going on beneath the skin. Each gives you a different piece of the puzzle.Organized by where the head is relative to the shoulders, then by where the camera is. So each group should have the same muscles and tendons bulging out. (If you post drawings from any stock here, do check the stock artist's rules.) NOTE: Images marked with ⬅ are NOT stock. Use them for practice, but don't post. (There's only one image marked since there's so much great stock.)If you stumble across good neck stock, especially with good shadows, I'd l
Stock Features 2013 - #01Providing stock to the DA community is maybe one of the most demanding and least rewarding jobs here on DA!Stockers need to put up simple rules, like crediting and providing a link back to where the stock was used.Maybe it's just me, but I think this should be a natural response to do. People have no problems with expressing their gratitude when it comes to any deviations other then stock. Most of the time people comment on stock because it is the stockers rule to do so.A nice piece of recognition for a stocker to get is a DD.These Daily Deviations are sometimes hard to come by.Luckily for us stock providers we have the wonderful Elandria and PirateLotus-Stock to help keep us motivated with awarding those so desired DD's!Having said this, I would like to finish this journal with some of my personal favorite stocks that really should have a DD notification under their stock photo!For DD consideration...
Another DD - Yay! Stock FeatureThanks so much to my gal :iconmercurycode: for recommending me, and :iconPirateLotus-Stock: for putting me forward. You guys rock!The honorary deviation:Well, you know, get some love, give some love back, so it's time for a Stock Feature! A collection of some of the pieces I've faved over time. I'm sure there are many great stock artists I've not managed to include, so my sincere apologies.

Tools of the Trade: Choosing StockWhat to Look ForWhen it comes to stock images there is no better time to be picky. With both free and purchased stock, be discerning. Once you start being picky about what stock you use, and even better when you start using premium stock, you will notice your quality of work will increase a significant amount. Better ingredients means better results. ClarityYou want a crisp clear image with a very very low amount of noise, no motion blur caused by a shaky camera, and completely no artificial effects and edits. Noise is the most common issue, but also the easiest to deal with (to an extent) as long as the image is a good size. Which brings us to our next quality to look for.SizeThe bigger the better. The bigger it is the easier it is to add details, fix defects, and overall just a million times easier to work with. In fact, unless you are a 100% web only hobbyist low resolution images are basically unusable. There is nothing
