This helps me a lot. Normally I just use dA's stock. Also, colored pictures (sepia, black and white, etc.) aren't goo for much use either. They CAN be helpful but it's better to find pure, uncolored images.

pretty basic tutorial but handy for anyone starting out, thanks very much!
I think your an amazing artist/photographer, you are actually a big inspiration to me and one of the reasons I started a deviantart page and kept going with my photography, thankyou :)

try downloading GIMP - it's free and it's similar to photoshop.

This is greatness. Thank you...especially for introducing me to a stock site I wasn't aware of...and reintroducing me to a site (morguefiles) that I had forgotten about.

100% Useful to those that use stock, I think.

And You should make a tutorial on making good stock. Because the example you chose as bad stock qualifies to most of the stock that is submitted on dA. You have so much "junk" that the really good stock is totally drowned out.

I really don't want to bash anyones work, but too many people believe that uploading 100 pictures of your cat, taken with a webcam, qualifies as stock.

Yes!!! I saw it! I think its really good! Hope this will trigger some reaction and get people to think a bit about what they're uploading :) You could do the same for brushes too, btw! I see many people upload 50px brushes, what the hell is a graphic designer to do with a 50px brush? Ok, real graphic designers make their own brushes, but still, it's frustrating to see all kinds of cool ideas floating around but the size of the brushes is simply too small to be used in a bigger scaled work. :)
