Welcome to Safe Stock Resources



"It's not about how many members we have, it's about who our members are. We care about our Resources & Stock Community. We strive to provide quality, safe, and legitimate stock resources for artists to use."

This group is based on the pledge that we as stock providers distribute safe and legitimate stock resources. We pledge to follow all dA Term and Guidelines regarding our stock resources, so that artists may use our stock without fear or penalty.

Safe-Stock-Resources was formed as a way to feature the stock providers that are known and trusted for their content. It was not created as your average 'submit anything' group. It is meant to be a place where artists can go to see a selection of stock providers that they can trust.

Only verified members will be allowed to join. The submission process will be strict and thorough. Not everyone will be approved. All potential members must be stock resource providers. If you are interested in joining, send the group a note, and we will put you into the consideration queue. If you are an artist seeking stock to use, please watch the group instead.

How To Credit Your Stock Providers Tutorial by CelticStrm-Stock Do's and Don'ts of Stock Photography by Tasastock Contests News and FeaturesWelcome to Stock & Resources 2013!
We hope you all had an excellent beginning to the New Year!  Please find below some very interesting contests, features and news.
Precut stock - all the problems :/
Precut stock is something that like Marmite, people either love, or hate.  Either way it brings its own special issues to stock providers and photomanipulators alike, so I've highlighted some very important points you should take into consideration below.
:bulletred: Precut stock is in its very nature "EDITED" therefore its is no longer in its original photographic form and should therefore be posted to resources/clipart OR stock/premade backgrounds/..  NOT to the usual stock galleries which should be reserved for original photography that has only very minor post production edits such as exposure/brightness/contrast etc. alterations according to DA's gallery definitions.
:bulletred: Precut stock - like all photo
Membership and Submission Guideline InformationThis is the outline of our group membership and submission requirements. Just like at The-Stock-Directory, everyone has a say in how this group is run. If you have a suggestion or addendum to the rules, please let us know. After this blog is published, I will be adding a folder so that you can submit your Stock Terms of Use journals, so feel free to submit them. Even though the membership requirements are strict and thorough, this group will not be an elitist snob society. I don't play by those rules.
If you are a new stock provider and are watching or considering this group, I encourage you to visit The-Stock-Directory and look over the Learning Resources for Stock Artists gallery. The-Stock-Directory is a learning based group that helps new providers grow and learn the ropes. I would also encourage you to familiarize yourself with the :devart: terms and guidelines regarding stock. That should




:star: Submission Guidelines:

:bulletblue: - All submissions must be listed in the Resources & Stock category of deviantART.

:bulletblue: - As this is a Featured Member group, only deviants who have been accepted as a member will have their work accepted.

If you know of a legitimate stock and resource provider invite them to join the group or have one of the admins send an invitation; please do not submit their stock to us unless they are a member here!

:bulletblue: - All submissions must adhere to dA Terms and Guidelines.

:bulletblue: - All Premade Backgrounds must be credited, whether it's your own resources or legitimate 3rd Party resources. (i.e. another dA stock provider that allows for premades.) Note: Premades should never be created with images from sxc.hu, DepositPhotos, etc. It violates their redistribution terms.)

:bulletblue: - All Precut Images must be of your own resources or precut with permission from the original stock provider. They must be credited in the artists comments. They should NEVER come from google images, retail websites, or other copyrighted images.

Winner of the Creative Challenge #1 - Conjoined Pumpkins 


It was very difficult to narrow down the great entries and choose a favorite, but I forced myself to anyway. The winner of the first Creative Challenge is Rachgraceh with Pumpkin Fairies!

Pumpkin Fairies by Rachgraceh

Congratulations!!

The Watcher's Favorite and the Top Five have been determined by the poll and the results are:

Watcher's Favorite: The Terrible Twosome by Nejija

Top Five (in order): Catgirl by dreamswomanConjoined by HikariToriPumpkin by xLockyAfter Midnight by abelrod666Sometimes I dream... by ASR-KKG

Creative Challenge # 2


I have chosen one of my favorite night time cloud/sky stocks for the second challenge. Seeing as how those of us in the Northern hemisphere are experiencing Autumn I chose one of our Harvest Moon stocks!

I have used this shot in two of my own artworks that you may see here for inspiration, but remember that you may interpret the stock anyway you wish!

Required Stock


Harvest Moon 6 by DamselStock

Rules


:bulletgreen: You must use the required image listed above in your artwork. It must be used so that I may easily distinguish it from the other elements in your artwork. (Obviously this does not apply to Literature but you must describe or mention it so that I know you are referring to my stock.)
:bulletgreen: You can use the free download of the required image, you are not required to purchase the Premium Content version. That is only if you wish to make a book cover and sell it, or the like. 
:bulletgreen: You must state that your piece is for this challenge and include a URL/Thumb code of this journal in your Artist Comments.
:bulletgreen: You may use other stock from my account, or other deviants accounts as long as you follow any Rules or TOU posted. You may NOT use images found through Google Images or any other non-legitimate sources. If you question whether your source is legitimate or not you may ask me via note.
:bulletgreen: You may use premade backgrounds but please note that I prefer you to challenge yourself and will always go with the artist who made their own background in the event that I am tied on who should win.
:bulletgreen: I allow horror/macabre art so feel free to get bloody, however, absolutely no sexual themes will be allowed as some of these challenges will more than likely include my nephew's images.
:bulletgreen: The challenge will run for exactly ONE MONTH and a new challenge will begin immediately on the 1st of the next month so there will be absolutely no extensions. 
:bulletgreen: Any medium will be accepted, YES EVEN LITERATURE! You are more than welcome to enter a poem or short story if the stock inspires you. 
:bulletgreen: You may enter as many times as you wish, but you can only win one prize (either my choice or Watcher's choice.)
:bulletgreen: To enter post the URL or thumb code to your artwork/deviation to this journal. 

Deadline


:bulletgreen: Challenge runs from November, 2014 thru November 30, 2014 
Due to nature of "monthly challenges" there will be no extensions. There will always be the next challenge if you cannot make this one!

Prizes


:bulletgreen: My favorite will receive 500 dA points and the Watcher's favorite will receive 250 dA points. The  top 5 favorites after those two will receive 100 dA points. 
:bulletgreen: The Watcher's favorite and top 5 will be determined via the poll system. I expect you guys to be fair and honest. NO ASKING FOR VOTES! If I find out you have asked for votes then you will be disqualified from this challenge. If you do it a second time you will no longer be allowed to enter the monthly challenges. The winners will receive points which cost me money. I will not pay for cheating. You may vote for yourself but if you have multiple accounts please only vote with the account your art is posted on. I know I cannot stop you from cheating but I am trusting you guys to abide by the Honor Code. 
:bulletgreen: I will add more prizes if we end up with more entries than 15 entries.

If you wish to support the monthly challenges in terms of prizes please donate any points you are able or willing  to my Donation Pool on my profile page or by clicking here. I have a feeling this will become more expensive as the challenges grow. I do not want to have to quit the challenges due to not being able to afford giving out prizes.
