Stock-For-Premades


We're here to help provide you with easy access to stock photos for your next big project. This group is focused on unrestricted stock items for the creation of premade backgrounds. Only unrestricted stock will be accepted. Feel free to browse our gallery, and our listed stock providers. This group is an extension of the full stock group The-Stock-Directory. If you are seeking other types of stock, be sure to go there and check out the gallery!

We have a philosophy with this group: This Group does not belong to just one person or an elite few. It belongs to all our members equally. Everyone has a say in how the group is run, what changes are made, and can submit announcements or contests for the blog. We do not participate in the snobby, elitist mentality. We welcome and support each other and our new members.

.:-Membership-:.
You must be a stock provider to join the group. All stock submitted must be available to use in the creation of premade backgrounds.

If you are an artist or provider who wishes to make premade backgrounds, but do not let others make them with your stock, please watch the group instead.

A Guide to Writing DialogueWhat is dialogue, exactly? The definition from Merriam-Webster’s dictionary was several lines long, so I shall summarize it in a short sentence for the sake of the readers; it’s the writing that illustrates conversations between two or more characters in a story. We read and hear it all around us, but creating it in your own work can be a challenge. However, if you find dialogue an obstacle in your writing, then don’t push the panic button. In this tutorial, you’ll find by analyzing what dialogue can do and how to use it, you can turn your greatest fear into your greatest ally in your story.
What dialogue is
Like I’ve asserted before, dialogue is basically what the characters are saying to each other. It can be found in multiple mediums such as books, movies, comics, video games, etc.  We even engage in dialogue daily without even thinking. When you talk to your best friend, a co-worker, or even your dog, you create dialogue. It’s exchang

DeviantART: A Critical Community (Part 1)You may have heard...
From the most novice to the most accomplished, dA is home to artists of all types and skills. This mish-mash of talent, experience, knowledge, and eagerness to learn creates a beautiful opportunity for mentorships between those who are learning and those who are willing to lend their time and patience to a burgeoning new artist or writer. But forming those relationships can be daunting for those looking for help and unfulfilling for those offering that help. 
This is the first of a two part article series that aims to address a few key points of miscommunication that seem to be common between those willing to offer critique and constructive commentary and those seeking feedback. You may have heard that the critique community on deviantART "sucks" or "doesn't exist", but I'll humbly beg to disagree. I've been an activ

There is some gorgeous work here!

Only unrestricted stock is accepted here? Does that go for textures too?

And just so you know, I don't think =CelticStrm-Stock is unrestricted. I clicked on a few of her things and she has a lot of restriction in place.
