deviantART's Community Relations Team provides a unique collective effort that seeks to create and sustain collaborative relationships among deviants and to develop innovative opportunities within the global art industry. These relationships are meant to provide and encourage opportunities to foster creative genius. The CR Team acts as a window of information for the community on how to utilize deviantART in a way that will empower and enable themselves as respected and successful artists.
Our ultimate vision is a community of artists that come together unified and strengthened by sharing the belief that they hold the artistic power to create and shape their own success. In order to realize our vision, our mission must be to exceed the expectations of our community, whom we view as partners, and we will accomplish this by committing to our shared core values. Our core values are listed in :faq84:

Comments on recently featured Stock reminds us that there are people unfamiliar with what stock is and how it is intended to be used. The official definition, which can be found in the gallery description is "Stock Photography which the provider has granted a license for incorporation into other Deviant artists work."</b>
To expand a bit, stock photographs and images can be used in digital works such as photomanips and used as reference in both digital and traditional art. You are required to adhere to the stock artists rules.</a> Typically, this includes crediting the provider in the description of your art and notifying them that you have utilized their stock. There are exceptions so be sure to read the rules prior to using any stock. If you have questions, contact the artist prior to using the stock to avoid misunderstandings.
|I am an undergraduate art student at Missouri State University studying sculpture and metalsmithing. I have been a traditional artist for all of my life and a digital artist for many years. I also work in the fiber arts as well as ceramics and photography.|
