Random Favourites

-- Stock Up -- Vol. 17
I was suggested the theme robots. Well writing this stock article is a lot harder than it looks. People don’t label their images with keywords that I’m looking for, or if they do, they don’t link directly to the photo they used, just to the stock account. This means I have to stroll through upwards of 2,000 photos just to find the one that I am looking for. Another thing that people don’t do, is when they use a piece of stock, they don’t go back to the original deviation and leave a message there. That would make this a lot easier to write. I could find the cool stock first, and then just stroll through the comments to see who has used it where.
Another thing that stock artist’s don’t always do, is fav only work that has their stock in it. I fav everything else with my main account, and only the items using my stock at my stock account. That way if anybody would like to see how my stock has been used in the past, they can just click on my favorites.

CEA Update November 15th, 2007
As any photo manipulator and many wallpaper artists can tell you, having access to photographs and third party artworks is crucial to their chosen genre of art. These third party photographs and artworks are often called “Stock Photos”, “Stock Art”, or “Clip Art” and there can be some occasional confusion about what pieces can be used and what pieces cannot be used so I’ll attempt to shed a little light on the situation today.
Your best option is to collect your stock from established (and legal) stock photography websites but often it can be difficult to tell an actual stock website from one which is illegally offering copyrighted material under the pretense that it is stock. Knowing the difference will determine whether or not your photo manipulation gets removed by the C&E staff.
Many legitimate stock websites will offer ‘Royalty Free’ photographs or art for your use. Royalty Free content is usually provided at no charge but typica

Thank you to everyone that has continued to use and enjoy my stock during my lengthy absence from dA, it means a lot to me. :)  I'm going to be trying to submit some new stocks hopefully in the near future.

I've simplified my usage instructions, hope this makes it easier for people that weren't sure what usage was and wasn't ok.
