Stock Resources GROUPS Directory
This article is meant to serve as a list of groups at deviantART that focus on art resources.
I know you can find all these groups and more in dA's Groups search, but how much time would it take you to find them all? And how many dead accounts and unrelated results might you sift through to find what you're looking for? (I did that very thing for this article, and I can tell you one rather probable answer to both questions is, "a lot.")
Not that I'm complaining. I simply saw an opportunity to compile a listing of deviantART's 80 most helpful groups about resources. But let's back up a bit.
Before I began this directory, I felt it would be important to introduce everyone to a place (the place) for dA's resource providers (and users) to get acquainted with the world of stock photos, textures, PSD files, tutorials, and all that other great stuff artists need to create their masterpieces! Thankfully, I didn't have to

Here it is! "Firestarter"

I thought I'd never finish it... I am sharing it in lower resolution, so I do not have to watermark it. This is from a photo. I will make a scan in high resolution for offering prints later on.

It is 9x12" On Bristol. Done in exclusively in Prismacolor colored pencil, Burnished.

I was compelled to draw this when I heard of all the wildfires nation-wide ravaging state parks, and wildlife preserves, in the drought of 2016.
Some fires were set intentionally, while others were a product of 'Mother Nature', doing her thing. So many ancient trees and habitat were lost. Now...that the drought is over, everything is about to be renewed fresh, and green, bursting with life...once again. Enjoy!
Hellooooo!  ...I'm Baaack! :D  I finally have something new to share! My latest Illustration. I hope everyone enjoys it!

If you have left a comment since the last time I was here, I will get to it, someday I hope... I am horribly behind. Over 16,000 messages is hard to manage. I can thank all who fave'd a post here! So yeah, Thankies! If a question or inquiry is important, please drop me line via email. I can get back to you faster that way. ^_^


CozmicDreamer's Profile Picture
Amanda Martin
United States
I am a fantasy artist, and gift-maker.

Art is my Love, and my therapy. I cannot exist without expressing myself in this way. The gift of being able to paint imagery from my creative psyche is a gift I treasure eternally.
The whimsical world of fantasy has great appeal to me. Those are the works I enjoy the most to create. However, I will not ignore realism, and utility. I am willing to accommodate most any clients needs, when it comes to commissions. I strive at working to my very best of my ability, to create happiness, and wonder. I am always open to trying something new.

I newly have developed skills in designing, and creating artificial eyes for doll makers, crafters, sculptors, as well as for costume, and special effects.

Fantasy Art, Equine Art, Eye Making for BJD, Art dolls, and sculpture. Pyrography, Dragons, Ornaments, Gift, and Treasure boxes, One-Of-A-Kind Arts and creations.

Skills and Techniques:
Mural painting, wood burning, watercolor, oil, acrylic, pen and ink, pastels, pencil, both colored and leaded. In addition, I am skilled in scratch art, and general crafts, glass painting, floral arranging, and sculpture. I am best at animal realism, landscapes, seascapes, and interpretations of sky and clouds. I also enjoy fantasy art. People really love my Dragons.

Current Residence: Massachusetts
deviantWEAR sizing preference: The bigger, the better!
Favourite genre of music: I'm a Rocker Chick, But I like just about everything except Polka, Rap, and Deep Country
Favourite photographer: My best friend
Favourite style of art: Fantasy, Realism, Animal, Landscapes...
Operating System: PC
MP3 player of choice: Creative Zen 30 gig
Wallpaper of choice: always changing
Personal Quote: Look to the sky...For my head is in the clouds.
"Geeze!...What has happened?!" I hadn't realized it has been that long since I checked in. Wow! For ALL the messages, and comments I have missed, I am so sorry! I just do not have as much free time as I would like to keep up with things here so much.

Things are consistent for the most part 'round my studio. I remain quite busy. I still manage to squeeze in some Art along the way. I will dutifully post the "New Workings, and progress images" accordingly; It will take a while though. Making eyes is still a priority, as well as my sustenance.

I may never catch up with all these messages bloating up my inbox, so I will say this:  "Hello!" To all the new watchers.... "Thank you!" To all the favorites.... And, "I'll eventually get to answering any important questions asked of me, in due time." ...I hope. And if I do not, get to yours...I am sorry about that.

So... I shall "Get On"...  *winks*
  • Listening to: My mind reeling
  • Watching: The concepts in my mind come alive
  • Playing: with my ideas
  • Eating: My words
  • Drinking: in what lies ahead...
