None at the moment because I'm too busy to do anything worthwhile here on dA. Will come back... at some point.

Adorable Baby Animal Stocks

Thu Apr 3, 2014, 5:33 PM

... that I come across and want to share.

Because everyone loves baby animals, here are a few that I found recently. The feature is meant to both be a small collection of cute, and something to make you smile, because I like making people smile!

Starting with the most adorable ball of evil! I didn't know baby ravens had such bright blue eyes. This one looks like it's trying it's hand (wing? claw?) at evil, but is just too cute to fool anyone.

I want a goat. One of the fainting ones, or maybe a tiny
Pygmy. Or this one.

Now some of you maybe don't think mice and rats cute, especially naked onces... but you are wrong. Unfortunately there aren't that many baby rat stock images, but here are a few:

It's a bit hard to tell if the fennec fox pictured is a baby or not because they all have that baby-ish look (must be the huge ears!). But it's a fennec fox and it is pretty much the definition of adorable (after kittens).

And this is it, because this journal is getting too long. Are you smiling yet? Is the adorable getting to you? Do you have an urge to incorporate some of the cuteness into your next manipulation/drawing/painting/other? If so, then the feature was a success! If not, visit my favourites for more adorable animal stock photos that didn't make it into the feature.

Oh. I just realised that I haven't actually included any kittens! Here's a quick one before I go to sleep:

It wants you to go and do awesome things, or it will cry. Don't make the kitten cry.

All these things will be listed here (for as long as they run).
So far, only two, but hopefully the lists will grow when I have more time.

I have a blog now!

Well, I had this blog for a couple of years now, but kind of forgotten about it. Today my sister had an idea to make a blog where we can talk (she would not be convinced that a forum would be a better option). In the end we decided to make it a shared art blog where we will also write about other things -- mostly relating in some way to art. Everyone is welcome to see and comment -- there are two posts already, a poem by Aga-my-sister (Puppet-An) and a photo and a beginning of a story by me. Perhaps in a little time the blog content will become interesting for everyone.

Here is the blog:
Thanks for visiting! If my work was useful to you, I'd love to hear about it:) If you have suggestions about how I could make it more useful, I'd love to hear them too!

Re-posted under each stock deviation, sometimes with something added or removed for that particular one.

- send me a link to what you make
- credit me and/or link back to me (either my profile, or the specific photo)

You can:
- use works made with my stock off-deviantART (all other rules apply)
- sell works made with my stock (for a small donation, specified under the deviation)
- make pre-made backgrounds (all other rules apply)
- ask me if you're unsure about anything concerning my rules, stock and/or photography!

You can not:
- offer my work as your own stock or re-post elsewhere without a visible link back to either the original image or my profile
- claim my work as your own
- make hate/rape/abuse/similar art with my stock
- make any erotic/pornographic art with my model stock. Keep in mind that all my models were, at the time the photos were taken, under 18.
