Welcome to stock-A-licious

Yes!!! If you are looking for stock to use in your manipulations or as reference to your traditional art, you have reached just the right place!

This group is for stock providers to showcase their amazing photo's and make them available for all artists out there! If you are not a stock provider in any way, please watch the group. We will deny any requests from non-stock artists. Thanks!

      If you have stock images and want to contribute to the group, you are more then welcome to join (min. 5 stock images in your gallery) Note that non-stock-providers will not be accepted (or kicked)... however all are welcome to watch the group to stay updated with stock-A-licious
    To Become a Contributor:
      You can not join as Contributor right away. Contributors are chosen from the members and contributors. Activity and an eye for quality are few of the guidelines that determine the decision to promote!
    Submissions guidelines:
      Submissions must be a minimum size of 1000x 1000, this is so as to maintain high standards of stock/ resources. Must follow DA's own decency policies, which is to say the difference between a nude and porn etc. If unsure please ask one of our staff. If the stock is "cut-outs" then please state in the description that this is your own photography, this also counts if you have used other peoples stock in your work (mainly to prove permissions have been granted.)

    :note: Note:
    Please note that if you use any of the stock featured here,
    you MUST follow the artists personal rules (usually posted in their journals)


    Please put the stock-A-licious icon somewhere om your DA main page, so that other people may know that we exist.

Update: 1 WEEK REMAINING FOR ENTRY SUBMISSION! New Prizes! 100+ points up for grabs along with some cool exclusive stock :D


Current Entries can be found here:



I've decided to have a contest in celebration of hitting 10K page views. Well ok, I'm at 9116 and the wait is killing me. So it's close enough, eh? I want to get this contest started. There are two categories to the contest, art creation and stock creation!

Art Creation: Fantasy and Science Fiction

Artists, your task is to create a fantasy or a science fiction themed piece. But there's a catch, you have to use at least one of my stock images in your work. I have 500 some stock images to pick from (animals, landscapes, people, and more!) and I'll be uploading more during the duration of the contest. And when I say use, I don't mean you have to do a photo manipulation. You can use them as a reference for painting or drawing. I do it all the time. You have to follow my Terms of Use (link) of course.

There will be 1st, 2nd, 3rd places

Stock Creation: Fantasy and Science Fiction

Stockers let's make some stock related to the genres of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Artists, dip your toe into stock. I promise it's fun! If you don't have a super cool costume and want to try out the stock category, it's no problem really. I was at a Halloween party and someone went as the old hag from Snow White, except as a modern version that wore a grey sweater and leggings with a Tupperware container of apples. She just pulled the stuff out of her closet. Know some awesome spell castor poses? You could submit pose stock as your entry.  You may submit premium stock/exclusive stock.

There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places.


1.  Yes, you can enter both categories!
Only one entry per category is allowed.
2. You have to use at least one of my stock images in your art
entry and follow my TOU.

3. All stock resources must be valid and credited.

4. All entries have to be fantasy and/or science fiction themed.

5. Absolutely no nsfw entries allowed.

6. You will have to submit your entry by comment on this journal
 or by note to Cassy-Blue. In the artist's comments
please include a link to the contest journal. thanks!
