Welcome to #StockProject
, deviantART's official group focused on community dialogue about commercial stock offerings! This group is your home to discuss how we should design an on-site integrated stock offering, to view educational resources about making, selling, and licensing stock, and to access hundreds of free stock assets.
Our goal is to provide deviants a place to talk about stock (both creating stock for others and incorporating stock assets into new pieces of art) with fellow enthusiasts and to benefit from the passionate stock community already active on deviantART. We are starting the process by providing access to millions of images through the deviantART Stock Project with Fotolia
. It aims to give deviants the ability to find and use stock under simple licenses at fair prices.
Fotolia, a leading microstock provider worldwide, is the perfect partner for this project as they're a company that is truly committed to using community involvement to change the traditional business of microstock offerings. Fotolia provides important expertise in making stock work as a commercial undertaking.
We're excited to be embarking on this new adventure and want to hear your feedback during the journey! Key points to keep in mind as you browse the group:
