So just what is stock anyway?Stock resources are images and resources provided by a photographer, model, commercial or amateur artist, which they may or may not charge for, as obviously there are many many stock companies that manage stock for photographers commercially.So just what is stock anyway? by skydancer-stock
Stock may also be a collaborative and cooperative venture where imagery is placed for the use of other artists to create derivative work from, or for where its not possible or not practical for the artist to work with them face to face.
Stock may also be your own work, photograph or modeling that you use in your own artwork, either as references or as photo collage and manipulation work. Its a very wide area of photography and in fact extends well beyond it these days with the use of modeling programs and 3D rendering programs that can produce scenes, backgrounds, atmospherics and even digital figures for use in stock work.
I do think it should be very clearly stated and respected for any rules or guidelines controlling the usage of the imag

Copyright Resources CompilationFan ArtCopyright Resources Compilation by Lyricanna
When we talk about Fan Art, the question of copyright tends to come up. There have been a lot of resources posted on the subject on DA over the years and sometimes they can be tricky to find. So this is a comprehensive compilation on the topic posted by staff, who have had legal consultation. I have left out older articles that are similar to the ones I included as the more recent ones would have the most accurate information.
DA's Copyright Policy
<- This is the big one, specific to Fan Art and it comes with video.
(and more specifically , and )
While I have shared official articles and FAQs here, I know there are a lot of unofficial articles on the topic.

New Challenge: Quotable ArtistryGreetings Castle Dwellers...
We have a new challenge here at the Castle, "Quotable Artistry." I don't know about you all, but I really like to see quotes within the artwork. I'm drawn often to include a lyric or two in my own works. (I know at least ONE person, :iconwavingplz: who doesn't care for this kind of work but I hope she'll play anyway. So, the concept is any type of artwork that includes a quote. Hopefully you will choose one that is of particular meaning or inspiration to you. Easy peasy, eh? DO send in only your best effort(s.) Continue making the judging of the "winners" a CHALLENGE for the judge because there are so many fine works to choose from.
The requirement is this: you MUST include a quote within the artwork itself. Mention in your description any details that pertain to the reason for your choice of quote. NOTE: Song lyrics are acceptable as much of the inspirations for quotes come from them.
