EDIT> Rather than try to thank everyone individually, I am going to do so here in one "FELL SWOOP". It is deeply appreciated. Soon the account will undergo a severe update putting many of the images into packs to make it easier to handle and to address the problem of too many submissions, which you would not normally consider a bad thing, swamping the search system. Also, the image sizes are going to be increased to make them more usable for detail studies and larger print uses in photo manipulations, as well as being easier for the art students, figure artists and character artists to study and use in their sketches and paintings. I greatly support, along with my collaborative models, muses and artists the community of serious and dedicated folk that support and continue to encourage those of us that work at bringing material for the creation of so many wonderful works.

The Rules!

You have my permission to use these images as long as its not used for horror, violence or exploitation of people. I am always delighted with traditional arts studies, art students and working artists that use my work for their art. Photo manipulations are certainly allowed, and I have no problem with DA prints as long as you follow my rule on how you use my image and that you do some serious work on it before you offer it as a print. I don't mind that you might experiment and learn to use various digital filters, color adjustments and such, but that sort of work should be acknowledged as a process of learning, not a finished work.

I am pleased to be able to help folks learn, as well as produce quality art and develop their visions of the world. Do drop me a note with your work if you use any of my stock, and if you are going to be using it outside of DA I need to know about it as not all uses by all models are allowed.

Now get out there and create something!

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-05-09
Skydancer-Stock 4378 by =skydancer-stock
For Stock Week as part of Project Educate!
As a Stock Artist I know how difficult it is to get full-body models in clear pictures with easy-to-remove backgrounds for the many digital artists that take advantage of free stock on dA. This deviation is a good pose, has a "Gandalf" look and can be used in any type of medieval or fantasy deviation. The file is large and there are many details that can be taken advantage of, especially the sword and the way it is held. Check out the gallery for fantastic model stock. ( Suggested by AreteStock and Featured by WDWParksGal )

I like your stock photos because they provide GREAT reference for my drawing. If I ever draw again... which is a whole other issue, and I won't bore you with my whining.

Anyway, I thank you for all the awesome images, whether or not I ever get to do anything worthwhile, working with them.
