Stock Demonstration by lindowyn-stock Stock Demonstration by lindowyn-stock
Full view or download... or I shall cry tears of ultimate sadness.

I'm proud of my commando costuming skills for once, even if they make my lack-of-skill-at-sewing blatantly obvious.

This essentially explains the outline for all serious projects we undertake; even the short ones have some kind of vague similar outline.

This doesn't go into the things like specifics (aperture, ISO, equipment), but it does go into what is involved in this outline.

I'm rambling. I go now.

To say the least, I'm inspired :D Keep up the good work. I've always wished I had the resources to be a Stock Artist, too. Maybe one day :D

whee!! look how pretty and green everything there is! all of this rain making it look rock-awesome! i'm hoping the hazy day gave you awesome lighting :D

also, i see no elf tips! did they work for you or no? the costumes are lovely. you put a helluva lot of work into those. even though they are not even close to the most time-consuming sewing projects you have done.

also, i <3 the before shots. you might have to do that before all shoots now. take pics of ryn when she's just waking up all groggy and pre-prettified :D or me mid-sneeze or chewing food. post those up with a "LOOK HOW HARD I WORK FOR YOU PEOPLE!!! I HAD TO WORK WITH *THAT*"

';photographic resources of an epic nature'
I like that term... It's a bit long, but it has such a nice ring to it.

Thanks so much for all the hard work you guys put into making such fantastic resources. They don't call you stock artists for nothin'. You rock. Hardcore. :heart:

Incredible! I admire your perseverence and I appreciate your work! Even though I'm not a "stock" artist or photographer, I have a good idea of how much work you do. And it's incredible, really. Thank you and your models and crew for bringing us these wonderful pieces of art (yes, I believe it is an artform...as you said, it combines photography with theatre and they're considered artforms, so why not your work too?) Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Please keep up the brilliant work!!

It surprises me actually how many people think that there is now work at all involved at all in stock art. Just as with any artform it takes time, money, vision, and everything coming together at the right time and in the right way.

I have yet to work on a project as large as some of the ones you have done (So can't wait to see all of this one by the way, your work is inspiring actually.)
The largest I have yet to get past the planning stage, as it will be based off the characters in my novels, and I can't find a good male model.

Ugh, I hear you on the male model part. I'm writing a (bad) fantasy novel and am pretty desperate for fitting model stock, and stock I can use for publication purposes. If you ever need anything like that for your book, please let me know if I have anything at all you can use. :)

And really, there is no saving some people. They are content with ignorance. :glomp:
This was an expensive venture. :nod:

Thankies, actually I have to make all the costumes for those shoots, when I started the books years ago all the illustrations were going to be done by my father, so I went ahead and made the clothing for the world rather complacated, so at least a year of sewing for me on this project.

And don't I know it, it doesn't matter how many times all of us try to explain the work involved they still refuse to get it.

Awesome! I love my pirate costume and I would love to be able to offer some pirate stock but even just getting in costume and taking pictures out in the yard is a hassle. I really respect yall!

Tolkien stock = beautiful idea

As for another word for stock... the only thing I can think of is 'art base' ^^;

lindowyn-stock Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2009
It's a thought, but it's definitely it's own art, too. And stock here is a misnomer, really. When people say "stock" they generally think of photographs designed for use in corporate products and such, whereas we have an interesting niche here. I think we need a term that somehow expresses the impetus that is stock and it's ability to be the catalyst for creating other beautiful works of art, while also being an artform in itself. Talk about a problem...I'm not sure this term exists!

And if you lived anywhere nearby I'd gladly photograph you. :D
