Massive Exclusive Stock Sale

Journal Entry: Fri May 13, 2011, 6:57 PM




As some of you will know, I have had plans to do a medieval themed model stock photo shoot for quite a while now. I have the camera, the tripod, the waist length red hair (which has taken me ages to grow! hahaha) and now I'm working on sewing the dress. I have the materials...now I just need the time!

In the meantime, any donations received in support of my stock photos will have first access to this new stock & as a bonus, any donation of 50+ points or $5+ you make over the next 3 months entitles you to choose DOUBLE exclusive stock packs. So if you donate for 1 pack, you get 2. If you donate for 2 packs you get 4 and so on and so forth.
You can choose ANY combination of packs from my entire collection.



If you want unique stock for your art then its a great idea to check out the exclusive stock on deviantArt. There are now quite a few excellent stockers providing beautiful exclusive stock and you can see a few of the best over at Exclusive-Stock

EXCLUSIVE STOCK SALE

In an effort to raise some funds to create our wishlist costumes & for new free stock shoots we are offering heaps of exclusive model stock & some background packs in exchange for donations

Donations as small as $5 USD help us buy fabric and props

:star: My next planned photo shoot will be of myself in a deep green velvet medieval gown, some horseriding shots, studio and outdoor stock.

medieval costume inspiration

Suggestions for poses are welcome

:star: I have saved enough to buy some fabric for my costume but I would really love to get some props & sew a costume for the horse etc...

Some great examples to inspire you are featured below.

How do you do this?

As soon as you have submitted your stock photo to dA, apply to join the group, we will add you as a member and then you can add your entry to this folder: exclusive-stock.deviantart.com… or we can do it for you if you send us a note.

Contest Rules Button by GoblinStock


:star: ONE entry per person. So make sure its your best.
If you take a series of photos along the same theme then choose just the best single image to enter into this comp.

:star: Must be a new image, not submitted before the start of this contest.

:star: We want to see quality entries so make sure your stock photo is a decent size, at least 1400 px wide or tall, 300 dpi, not blurred or grainy and preferably with good lighting.

:star: Its up to you to set your own stock usage rules but if you're new to the world of stock then it might be a good idea to research the rules of other stockers so you get an idea of what to expect or what you want to allow.
:bulletpurple: Just a word of advice, be realistic! I have personally seen some pretty confused, contradictory stock rules in the past and it just puts people off... and can cause major hassles for you. Keep it simple ;)

Ok... Take Some Photos!

Update: Why I havent been here

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 11, 2011, 2:36 AM


Hi everyone :wave:

Wow. So much has happened.
There have been some big changes and epic events unfolding.

First: the lovely models that have generously donated so much of their time (and their bodies) to make our stock have moved away...
They went to seek their fortunes in the bright lights and big city! :lol:
So we say farewell to them for now. :heart: maybe we can see them for holiday stock visits ;)

I'm on the lookout for new models and hopefully kind friends who will be able to help out with this stock account because as you've probably noticed I havent been here very much lately.

Truthfully, some big things are happening in my life with regards to work and artwork. Mostly good things so keep your fingers crossed for me please. I'll update you when my news is more certain...



Second. No. I havent forgotten you wonderful donators. I'm so sorry for the delay in delivering these Exclusive stock packs. Please be assured they are on their way.

I've recently had my download/upload limit drastically throttled so its been a battle of patience with my computer trying to figure out a way to permanently upload stock packs to password protected areas. Its not been easy.

:new: Its working! The stock packs have almost finished loading... you'll have them soon!


:bulletblue: We would love to have some feedback from artists who are likely to use our future free stock photos so we know which poses/costumes to focus on. We are interested in considering requests.... :blahblah:  comment please

Judges:
:iconaaronpocock::iconcassiopeiaart::icongingerkellystudio::iconliquidfaestudios::iconvikingjon:


:bulletblue: This contest is NOT based on artistic skill. It is an exercise in experimentation & the unleashing of creativity.

Sad news....

The name sake of GoblinStock has passed away.

"Goblin"
He was a guinea-pig of unusual fatness and strength of character... he will be missed...

We have also had to say goodbye to a very dear friend and family member.

The Rules of Stock: Part 1, Commercial use

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 3, 2010, 5:54 PM
Exclusive Stock l Prize Packs l My Artwork l How to Donate l Note Me

STOCK REVOLUTION

Perhaps the title is a tad dramatic, but i want you to have a read of this article: news.deviantart.com/article/11…
And responses are welcome =D


First of all, I want to make this perfectly clear: There is no finger pointing in this discussion. I would like to see a range of opinions discussed as an open, mature, sharing of ideas...

STOCK RULES: where do they come from? Why are they so confusing?


As an artist who works in both traditional & digital mediums I truly appreciate the stockers here on DA. They provide a bountiful collection of inspiration and I know (as a stocker myself) that there are many challenges and alot of work that goes into creating good stock images.

When it comes to stock rules, there is a problem. And I think for the most part it is a misunderstanding of where we stand as visual artists and as stock providers  when it comes to 'commercial' usage.

I have to say, this is frustrating:

'You can use my stock for DA prints...
Not for commercial use.'


Now this is a contradiction.
Which is it? Do you allow prints or do you not? Prints are a commercial use.

To restrict commercial use to only DA makes no sense... unless the stocker is relying on the fact that on Deviantart there is a 1 in a trillion chance that an artists work will actually be sold as a print and if it does the artist is unlikely to receive any more than $1 per print unless they are lucky enough to have a premium print account.
There seems to be a general belief that stock use is more easily regulated here on DA than it is offsite. Would you agree or disagree?

Just as a point of interest: what issues do you think of when setting stock rules? or when reading the rules set by a stocker...

These are things I took into consideration when I decided to make my stock unresricted:
I want my stock to be used. I want it to help artists and potential artists to learn. I want it to help established artists find inspiration. I want to see creativity. I am under no illusion that it will only be used by those with talent. I expect it may be misused occasionally and I don't expect to be able to police it. :shrug:
As an artist I look for inspiration, for good quality, variety. I look for the unrestricted stock or the stocker with clear, simple rules. I use exclusive stock occasionally. I would love to be more successful in selling prints so that i have the finances to purchase more exclusive stock & help support good quality resources.

:bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue::bulletblue:

Why are your rules in place? What do you want from your stock?

Hopefully all these questions are leading us to the answers...

I ask another question: If you (the stocker) do not want your images used in a way that could possibly generate income for another artist then it might be an idea to rethink why you are offering stock. Is it for the use of beginners only? Is there a point where you are satisfied that the stock image is altered enough to make it a 'new' image... and to what extent would you be willing or able to control this?

Is the non-commercial usage rule a protection against theft? or does it have a more elaborate explanation?
I believe there is alot of confusion in the community as to what this rule means, and its not just the artists using the stock that are confused.

It is of course the right of the stock provider to set their own rules. But a limitation to where the image may be used will result in many artists avoiding your stock :(  We love DA, but as many have pointed out its not the only place for art online.

Now I'm not saying that stock rules should always allow commercial use or that every stocker need make their stock unrestricted (though that would be helpful) but if you allow prints here then it would make sense to allow them outside DA.

If you'd like to be able to pick & choose how your stock is used then explain how an artist will need to use your stock in order to obtain print/commercial permission for their artwork. How much alteration will need to be made?

My personal experiences
As an artist I work hard to create my work and occasionally am lucky enough to sell an artwork through my personal store. I prefer to sell my work this way as I can control the process and after all my expense I receive the full value of the print.

When I've finished an artwork I upload it to DA and go about the long task of tracking down and crediting and contacting every piece of stock I've used, whether leaf, bird or blade of grass, its only fair that I credit where the building blocks of my art come from.
Yet when i find after all that work that more than half the stock I've used has a contradicting restriction placed upon it, I lose heart.
I will contact all stockers to ask for print permission. Generally, I receive only 2 replies out of every 10 messages sent (and this is spanning a time frame of over 3 months per artwork) I have received no reply for artworks submitted over 12 months ago...
Do I have to meticulously erase every part of my work that doesnt have commercial permission? And this brings me to the next issue: Copyright. A topic so variable and a debate so heated it cannot be contained in this article. Until next time...

Please, I beg you, if you have a contradiction in your stock rules please think about what you are trying to say... lets make it clearer for all the artists and for future stockers too.

P.S Thankyou to everyone who has commented so far, you've helped a great deal with broadening my perspective and in the expansion of this journal into an article :thumbsup:

I will contact all stockers to ask for print permission. Generally, I receive only 2 replies out of every 10 messages sent (and this is spanning a time frame of over 3 months per artwork) I have received no reply for artworks submitted over 12 months ago...
Do I have to meticulously erase every part of my work that doesnt have commercial permission? And this brings me to the next issue: Copyright. A topic so variable and a debate so heated it cannot be contained in this article. Until next time...

Please, I beg you, if you have a contradiction in your stock rules please think about what you are trying to say... lets make it clearer for all the artists and for future stockers too.

Stock Rules

Sat Dec 12, 2009, 3:50 AM




PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF USE
I do not want to keep repeating myself when people ask questions that have already been answered below
:library:

I HEREBY GIVE PERMISSION FOR ALL DEVIANTART MEMBERS TO SUBMIT WORKS CONTAINING MY STOCK AS PRINTS PROVIDED THE FOLLOWING RULES ARE FOLLOWED

Stock Love by lyastri   My Nature and Background Stock is UNRESTRICTED Stock Love by lyastri  

:bulletgreen: Which means you may use any of my photographs (as part of your artwork) offsite & for commercial work. I would still love to see the result though, so send me a note or comment on this account with a link to where it has been used.
Model Stock may be used in any artwork as long as we are notified of its use and sent a working link to the page where it has been used.

DON'T ASK ME 'Can I use it?'
YES YES YES YES YES YES you can. I feel like a broken record.

Thankyou


.: STOCK USAGE GUIDELINES :.



What is acceptable stock use?



RULE #1  CREDIT


Please CREDIT :icongoblinstock: where possible* by providing a link back to either my main page, the goblin-stock gallery or the stock image you used. I don't mind which option you choose, as long as the credit is clearly visible.
Refer to FAQ #81: How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?

*I understand that if an image is used in an artwork offsite then it may not always be possible to link back, but please NOTIFY me of stock use :pray:


RULE #2   LINK


Please SEND ME A LINK to your work.
I love to see the results and I promise to :+fav: if it meets these stock rules. Leaving a link to your work as a comment on the stock used will give you the most benefit as more people are likely to see it there
If you submit an artwork offsite then it would also be beneficial for you to submit it to DA as well...that way I can spread the word through features in my journal. This is simply a suggestion, not a requirement (except when using the model stock; refer to RULE #1 )


RULE #3  COMMERCIAL USE


Absolutely. If you want to try & sell a print of your artwork then go for it!
If you want to sell your artwork for a book cover, CD, advertising, on a Tshirt, a puzzle, a 10 foot high poster... I salute you and wish you well. Making a living from art can be extremely difficult and alot of very hard work so if you create something beautiful and want to try to make a few dollars good for you :clap:

Remember to tell me if you have a print for sale or a product with your art on it... I may want to buy one! Or I can tell my friends about you & they might all buy something from you!

Do you need a model release form or a formal piece of signed paper stating permission to use my stock? Contact me via email (you'll get a faster response)
email: goblin-stock84@live.com

Write 'Model Release Form' or 'Permission' in the subject line so I don't accidently delete your message


RULE #4   REPOSTING - DOWNLOADING


Do Not Repost ANY of the raw stock images as your own Please! That is stealing and is very bad karma :police: These images are MY work...for your inspiration.
When you download a stock image to your computer you are entering yourself into a contract with the stock provider to use their image respectfully and following the rules they set out. Make sure you save each image with a name that will direct you back to the stock gallery you downloaded it from.
For example:
SAVE AS: "boat stock_goblinstock.dA"


This way you will be able to credit the stock provider when you submit your finished work.


RULE #5:  PREMADE BACKGROUNDS


Yes. Go for it. Follow the rules mentioned here and try to be innovative & I may just give you a big hug for being so clever =D

Really, I don't mind if you use and reuse my nature stock to create backgrounds. It's a good skill to learn and if this is what motivates you then feel free to take my boring stock and make it pretty =D


RULE #6 CREATIVITY


This rule should really be #1.

Be as creative as possible! :boogie: These images are here to inspire you. I want to give back a little of the same generosity that the dA community has given to me as an artist... These stock images are FREE STOCK IMAGES that you can use anywhere. Do you know how lucky you are to have found them? ;)

:star: :star::star: We understand that some people are just learning but that does not mean that you should not make an effort to submit your very best work... and do not just cut & paste, change the colors or add a bit of text over a stock image & call it a finished artwork. This is not acceptable stock use. Images like this are not to be used commercially.Not that you are likely to ever sell something of this nature, but it sets a really bad example and gives photomanipulators a bad name. :star::star::star:


RULE #7  UNACCEPTABLE THEMES?


Please don't use my stock for harmful, rascist, pornographic, violent or abusive images. No sane person wants to see that kind of thing.
Using my stock in artwork with nudity is fine, however,

We reserve the right to ask for any stock use that we consider to be inappropriate to be removed. Please consider the model is a person with feelings :butterfly: If you're unsure, contact us BEFORE you post your work online.

:star: Writing an erotic novel & want a cover image? = You should ask us first.

:star: Drawing a classical nude and need a pose reference? = You probably won't find many in our gallery...but you're welcome to go ahead and use your imagination



That's it.
Now play nice & have fun :blowkiss:

Want to thank me? I love getting points donations so I can keep my dA membership and my group Exclusive-Stock running
Just a little hint ;)

Congratulations to those who actually read the rules! :party: You shall live long & prosper!

I'm going to take you on a trip to faerieland :)

:iconthe-fairy-club:
Come JOIN US in the land of the fae, the Blessed isle :butterfly:

To inspire a few faerie artworks, I'd like to show you some of the stock that I love here on DA...

Faeries & Fae creatures have been a favourite subject of many talented artists throughout history and its no secret that they are my favourite subject to paint & draw.
The fae world is limited only to how far we can stretch our imagination, so I urge every artist to take a little inspiration from Faerieland and go create something as wild & beautiful as the faerie queen herself :)

A note for my watchers.... Sorry for the multiple journals this week! There are a few contest winner announcements to come as I have promised a few journal features here & there...

I hope you are able to read this journal...on some computers the layout appears normal but on my own its very random, all over the place & i can barely read it (though this has nothing to do with the CSS code, its just something that my computer has issues with) Any suggestions? :shrug:


As my watchers may have noticed...i finally learnt how to add CSS to my journal! Thanks to BaB-Jane for the beautiful layout & the wonderfully simple instructions...it seems so easy now i dont know what was wrong with me....

On that note, Enjoy this weeks STOCK FEATURE :wave:

Each week this feature will showcase a few of my favourite DA resources
I encourage you to visit the stock galleries and if you use these beautiful pieces in your art then please follow the individual stock providers terms of use :rose: Thankyou
