Stock Provider Interviews - HelenaRothStock:iconHelenaRothStock: HelenaRothStock is the home of Helena. Shes based in the UK and has a strange habit of photographing shiny things for our pleasure! As a continuation of our Project Educate Stock & Resources week we sent her our short list of questions to answer.
What were your first artistic influences, and did they have a hand in the development of your resources?
Ah, this one i remember. In college, for my photography A-Level I was researching digital artists and came across Mika (Mary) Borsiss in a photography journal. She did wonderful fantasy manipulations, so I emailed her (not expecting a response) and a lovelier person you couldn't ask for. She explained all about how she creates her art. After that I was hooked on digital. 4 years later I went over to the resources provider dark side because of the frustration of not being able to find certain stock.
Whats one of the most rewarding aspects for you as a resource provi
PE Interview: Artist, paintedonmysoul!:iconpaintedonmysoul: PaintedOnMySoul Is the fantastical art realm of Kat along with her stock gallery Peace-of-Art she is well equipped to answer some questions for us during our Stock & Resources Project Educate Week.
You've been a stock provider on deviantART for quite a while now, what first got you interested in providing stock to the community?
When I first came to dA I was amazed at the contributions the stock providers made to the community. I felt selfish just taking without giving something back myself. I found I enjoyed stock as much if not more than I enjoyed doing full manipulations. I love detail, sometimes to a fault, and might spend a day or two on just one item.
There are a lot of artists who use your resources, when you are taking images, or organising new stock to submit, do you look for any elements in particular like angles or lighting when choosing what would be the most useful, and does this reflect equally to when
A Week Of KissesA Week Of Kisses
The first day I told you I loved you,
I imagined kissing your shoulder,
Well before I thought about your lips.
Because I don’t know what I am doing, firstly,
But more importantly,
It’s because I know things can spiral quickly,
If things start shifting
After we lay down the concrete.
So I kiss the foundation,
Before we reach the soil.
The second day I told you I loved you,
I imagined kissing your elbow,
Because it holds together the touch
And the flex.
To exhibit it,
I must kiss the joint that bends
And combines us together.
The third day I told you I loved you,
I lay my lips to your temples,
As I learned about the temple of reform,
For the Youth in North America.
Kissing you there signifying I will protect you,
As well as your temple,
As we re-form, into something more.
The fourth day I told you I loved you,
I’d kiss you softly on your forehead.
Because that’s what holds your brillian
Stranger LoveI am not the sunlit wing-print
splayed out on the bedroom wall.
I am not the dark mass forming
in a corner of an airless hall.
I am not the viscous vengeance
where you sink your spinning wheels.
I am not the leaky bucket
hung up on your wishing well.
You are not my soul mate missing
wandering a winter's night.
You are not the sound of angels
singing by a candle's light.
You are not the rasp of fingers
fumbling with a hasp of steel.
You are not the tattered towel
soaking up the things I feel.
I am the oblivious child,
dancing where the wildflowers are.
You are my unwitting captive
lighting up a jelly jar.
Keep in Touch!
