Daily Deviations I've given

Daily Deviations I have featured. Please give these pieces some love and I hope they will inspire you :D

DD Guidelines


I'm the Stock & Resources CV!

  • I only take Stock & Resources suggestions, I cannot feature anything else (like scraps).
  • Make sure that the deviant hasn't already received a Daily Deviation within the past 6 months. FAQ #313: How can I find out if someone already has a Daily Deviation?
  • Send your suggestions to only ONE Community Volunteer!

How to suggest

Just hit the "Note" button on my profile page and add the subject: DD Suggestion include the thumb code (or URL) along with the reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation.

I may not reply to all suggestions but I do read, consider and appreciate every suggestion :heart:.

Have you hear about the changes over at projecteducate? Now people can sign up to lead weeks! If you enjoyed the PE stock week, this might be a fun opportunity for you:

2016: Big changes at Project EducateProject Educate
Dear members,
Project Educate is an ongoing endeavor for the Community Relations team -- one we have a lot of passion for and one that we want to lead as successfully as possible. These past few months we have been analysing feedback from the community and from our own team with regards to what we've been doing well here at projecteducate and what we should consider improving upon. We'd like to roll out a series of changes in 2016 in an effort to better cater to the community and offer you all new, long overdue opportunities.
We want projecteducate to be a place where everybody feels welcome; where everybody has a chance to teach, to learn and to lead. Below you will find some of the core changes we will be implementing within the next few weeks:
Community Led Weeks:
The majority, if not all weeks at projecteducate have been led by Community Volunteers. We'd like to change that. projecteducate is a project that was made for the community; so

LiliWrites's Daily Deviation Drive is active right now over at DDSuggestionDrive during the entire month of February! There are awesome prizes for participating and plus you help us CV's feature artists from across the community! 

Drive Active: February 1 - 29Our first drive is officially active!
We're currently hosting a drive from February 1 to February 29. Prizes will be distributed in March. Anyone who has a DA account is able to participate and eligible to win a prize, this includes Community Volunteers and Staff! We all love great artwork, and we can all suggest great artwork to be featured. This project is all about spreading the warm-tingly feeling when we see great stuff shoved at a spotlight.
:new: The prize list continues to grow thanks to the kind donations of the community! Be sure to check out the updated list below. We've still got just about 3 weeks to go until the drive closes, and we're smashing previous records like nobody's business! :eager:
What is a drive?
A drive is a period of time, usually one calendar month, in which DDSuggestionDrive is actively encouraging everyone on DeviantArt to suggest pieces of art and writing to the Community Volu

CelticStrm-Stock wrote about a new trend in the stock and resources gallery--offsite linked resources. Please take the time to read this! We cannot feature resources that are not accessible on deviantART. Tutorial previews for patreon etc are best to be posted in scraps or in your journal. 
Off-Site Linked Resources and Daily DeviationsI wanted to take a personal moment and address a trend that I've been seeing in the Stock & Resources gallery. Over the last few years I've noticed a trend of hosting resources off-site on a different website, but uploading a preview to advertise it on DeviantArt in the S&R gallery. 
I've received several Daily Deviation Suggestions recently for these advertisements, which I have declined to feature. I do consider them advertisements, not DeviantArt resources. I will not feature them with a Daily Deviation. 
I understand that the authors may have worked very hard on these resources or tutorials, and they may be of excellent quality. That's great. Go you. Wish you the best of luck. I still won't give it a DD, though. I will only consider resources that are available on DeviantArt through downloads or premium content. If it requires me to click a link to a different website like patreon, for example, you are out of luck. Out there be monsters, as the old war

And as usual, you should take a look at ErikShoemaker's photo-manipulation newsletter! There's good info about contests, groups, and more:

DD Suggestion Drive
I know many of you have already sent me tons of cool DD suggestions. DDSuggestionDrive is a group encouraging deviants to write more DD suggestions. They currently have a contest running from 1st to 29th of February, during which your task is to write as many DD suggestions as possible. The more, the higher your chance of winning! They are giving away tons of prizes, so it's worth it!
Find more info on how it works here:

To get an idea what could be great DD material, you can check the Photomanip DDs of January and my DD suggestion guidelines. I updated my guidelines to make suggesting easier for you. :-)

:new:Group Spotlight :new:

Well I'm going to start this section off with StockandResources. StockandResources is the group that the Stock and Resources cv's use to host contests and send out information as well as curate a collection of past dd's and stock relate news, features, and contests. If you haven't joined yet, I highly suggest you do! 

THE3-ContestEvents is the hub for contests run by CD-STOCK, EveLivesey, and YBsilon-Stock. Keep an out eye for interesting contests here!

 Independent-Manips is hosted by Aeirmid and LiliaOsipova. This group aims to help manipulators learn about how to create and use their own stock through tutorials, challenges, games.  This is more focused toward manipulators, but I figured it was worth a share since many stock artists do both photography and manips :)


Stock the Mood FeatureOver at my very first stock group, The-Stock-Directory, we had a little bit of fun with a poll. The challenge was to select an animal stock image by a different stock provider that reflected our moods. I want to encourage you to have a little fun and do the same in the comments section! The-Stock-Directory was a group I took over in my baby years of being a stock provider, so it will always have a special place in my heart. Through it I learned to navigate the community, it was where I met some wonderful friends, and improved as a provider. The submissions strictly adhere to FAQ 809, so the images you link in the comments should, as well. 
Stock The Mood! 

Note: Remember, if you use the featured stock images, always follow the terms and conditions of the original provider. By dow

PE: Share and LearnCommunity Week
Various artists are creating tutorials, sharing their resources, submiting speedpaints and starting Livestreams [1][2][3] to support others to improve their skill.
If you have any questions about your current software or "How to draw ...", those are the 4 points to check out.

Tutorials are easy to understand with the proper pictures and information given by the artist. The design of each tutorial is individual matched by the artist's way of learning and their thoughts
  Stock Photo TipsAfter browsing and practicing on many stock photos, I have decided to compile a couple of tips for taking stock photos. I don't see myself as a professional at all, but I have noticed a couple of issues with my amateur experience and want to highlight those.
I include examples of photos that are done right, because I don't want to show examples of where it was done wrong. I don't want to put people on the spot like that.
I'm focusing mostly on model stock photos, but many, if not all, of these tips are applicable to other types of stock photos too. 
1. Make sure the photo is in focus.
If it isn't in focus, it cannot be made in focus on Photoshop. If the photo fails in this aspect then the other aspects go down with it.
This photo by jl-modelstock is beautifully in focus, so the details are clear and nothing gets "lost."
2. Be aware of the sunlight.
