Today I recieved a comment, which i am not going to hide, vice versa i am going to point it out.
I really don't like when people talk stuff when they have NO IDEA about it.
Moreover, if someone else shares his opinion - i want to explain things to everyone at once. Hope you don't mind
So here is the comment:"well... I see one thing : you don't care about artwork and masterpieces from artists of photomanipulation who used your stock images...
why I say that ?
because you don't respond to people ( I saw the comments from people )... and thank to people for using your images.
I think DA is a stepping stone to something else you are looking for.
I used one of your image and you did not give me your opignon on the image that I made...
that's the only one and unique image that I will use... because , for me, you don't care about artists of photomanipulation
and bye bye"
I have 5 jobs right now. I am a bachelor translator, a model, a photographer, a make-up artist, a top-manager in a beauty salon, and stylist. I study at University (translation, interpreting). I also must keep fit. And need to keep in touch with friends and relatives. I am a woman also, which means that i must keep my house neat, keep my food hot and keep myself alive. I am a human also, which means i need sleep. And i still FIND time to leave comments, and say thank you
Sometimes i do that quite late, sometimes i do it from my other accounts, but even if your work is a year-old i GO to the page and say what i think about it. I would LOVE
to have more time, so i could do it sooner.
Actually I think that you have noticed that lately i do submit more stock and comment your works more often, as i have some free time this weeks.
All in all: Sorry that i do not leave feedback soon enough. Be sure that it will be given to you as soon as i have time. But you are not to blame me, i am a busy person, and i can't help it.2.
I try to provide stock that is useful. I hope you have noticed that the quality of my stock has increased. I do not publish any more "amateur" shots. They are usually made by professional photographers, in special studios. Both photographer's work and studio rent costs some money. After all - I am a professional model, who usually works for money.
But i still provide FREE and QUALITY STOCK. Because i LOVE your art, because i CARE of the artist, because i WANT TO BRING, TO CONTRIBUTE something to modern art of photomanipulation and I LOVE PROVIDING references to artists.
I love your work. But at the same time - i work for you. So please respect that. I don't give out some mobile-phone-made photograph, and wait when somebody will make any manipulation out of that. I publish stuff that is, i hope, not as PAINFUL to work with. So why do you start hurting me "You did not say "thank you!".
All in all: i love you guys, i love your work, i am happy every time when i see that you've used my stock in your work. But i do that FOR ART and ARTISTS, not for myself only. Please respect my job.
3. dA for me is a place where i can enjoy art. Where i can contribute to that art. Where i can get and give some feedback, where i can train my imagination. Its not a stepping stone. Moreover i don't search for " something else" except art. If i will be looking for something else - i'll go to the website about that "something else".
4. ATTENTION PLEASE
If you want to know my opinion about your work - please send me a note and ask for it. I'll be glad to comment or leave critique, and you will be the first in the list of people whom i'll give feedback that day
5. Please don't be offended. I try my best to be friendly, nice and at the same time - be HELPFUL. And i really care of art and artists. I just have little time. I spend my free time in preparing stuff for you to use. Please respect that.
And.. thanks for being by my side
To prove that i care - let me make a little "feature" here, to say a LOUD THANK YOU to the guys who used my stock lately (or not that "lately") FEATURES
- One of the latest photomanipulations made, which is a really high quality work, made with a great attention to the details and mood.
Thanks a lot! Also it is not the first time when the Artist used my stock, so you may also enjoy another beautiful piece made by *peroni68
- Victoria [link] Coagulation
just stunned me! Being a fan of pencilwork i can stare at the drawing for hours, because of the great shading and awesome detalisation. I have also noticed that the artist has a special love to stripy stockings, which is an absolute fetish of mine. So, dear Sheloize, if you would love to use my picture as reference again - drop me a note, i can exclusively
provide you some pictures of "me in stripy stockings", which was made not for stock.

has a very nice warm and playful mood, which makes me smile every time i see this art. Thanks for it!

doen't stop surprising me. He uses my stock very often and his manipulations become better and better! I am really flattered that you don't stop using my stock!

This manipulation reminds us that Halloween is coming! Soon we'll all be witches, vampires, ghosts, or maybe - catwomen/batmen, soldiers, nurses ... its all limited only by our imagination! Masquerade is coming! Time for carving, time for candies... and for witchcraft! ;D
by *JinxMimThe Lake Story
is another great concept in a great execution! And the glowing objects just charm the viewer! Wonderful art, which also includes wings (i am pretty much fascinated by the fairy-themes, did you know?))
by ~unconnectedbrainIncantation, Desolation and Queen of Spades...
and dear ~AdroVonCrow
are so perfectly "gothic" that they just make me miss my goth-teenage badly! They are different in their kind, but at the same time all three are endlessly beautiful in their "dark" mood!
Some of my stock images were mostly used for vampires. Take a look at some fangy-fancy awesomeness:
THANKS TO EVERYBODY! YOU ARE AWESOME!
Lets stop here for today! Because i really need to go sleeping now. I wanted to submit some new stock images for you to play with, or, maybe, to inspire you, but lets be happy with
what we have today - FEATURES
I hope to publish more "feature articles" soon - for best works using my "Couple" series, for best traditional art, best ideas, best execution.. and so on and so forth!
And i am still preparing a contest! ;D
