Bridges Between Worlds
There is the Bridge Over The River Kwai, The Bridges of Madisson County, Bridge Over Troubled Waters, Troll under the bridge and much more.
But have you ever stopped to think about what they mean to mankind?
They're useful tools to get you from point a to point b, over danger or discomfort or even to give you a better view of your surroundings - either as manmade beacons of steel and concrete or the more natural stone and tree-logs. And you can find them just about anywhere.
I've made a compilation below of resources for you to use in your artwork, and give hommage to one of man's simplest but most useful creations.

New to stock art?
First and foremost, 'stock art' is art posted for the use of other people on Deviant art.  People who use stock art tend to fall into three distinct groups.  The first, and probably largest group, are those people who use images for 'manips', or 'photomanipulation' - creating art from a montage or collection of photos, textures effects etc.  The second group are those people who use the stock as reference - whether it be for digital or traditional painting, sculpture etc.  The third, and probably smallest group, are those who use the images simply as inspiration - for literature or other pieces of art.
So who should you aim your art at?
The simple answer is that you should aim it towards the first group.  This is not predjudice towards the other groups, but that manippers tend to require the best quality and range of images that they can get. If you can cater for them, you are automatically catering for the other two.

-- Stock Up -- Vol. 32
After a month’s hiatus, Stock Up has returned. Things in life can get so hectic, sometimes the world seems so complicated; computers, cell phones, digital cable, the internet, battery powered toys, cars, jet airplanes etc. Sometimes it’s nice to just rewind and relax in time
Victorian Era
The Victorian era of the United Kingdom marked the height of the British industrial revolution and the apex of the British Empire. Although commonly used to refer to the period of Queen Victoria's rule between 1837 and 1901, scholars debate whether the Victorian period—as defined by a variety of sensibilities and political concerns that have come to be associated with the Victorians—actually begins with the passage of the Reform Act 1832. The era was preceded by the Regency era and succeeded by the Edwardian period.Reference
Let’s take a look at how the old school fashion can be used

Welcome to Project: StockART - challenging you for your monthly inspiration fix!

4 - How to join in
5 - Features for Last Month's Challenge
This month's theme will be The Human Canvass!
Based on the awesome photography series by cosfrog, we're asking all stockers to join in and show us what they can do with this theme. You don't have to be a model stocker to get your inspiration. If you can find a way to work with this theme with textures, brushes and the like, and can submit it as stock or another resource, then join in!
Whether you paint your body with the kid's paint set, use body-henna, show your tattoos in an artist stock way or even cover yourself in make-up, or if you can use yourself as a canvas in any other way (or hey, be the easel that holds the canvass!) you can join in!

There is an amazing selection of single-person model stock to choose from in the gallery but luckily we also have stockers that can work with other people in couples or groups.
Grabbing a friend or family member for a stock photo shoot is an awesome idea. Not only do you not have to play with an imaginary friend but you can use them as furniture! Um, I mean... you can interact with them for shoots that would have you sitting on their lap (or vica versa), dancing, mimicking and so on.

YOU MAY USE MY STOCK ON ANY WEBSITE YOU WANT WITHOUT ASKING ME FIRST! Also mobile apps if you're going to apply the texture as an effect to a photo or whatever. No need to ask even if you're getting paid. Just credit this page.
All I ask is notification, and credit if that's possible. For full rules see here: Stock Rules
I don't check this account that often, so I may miss it if you ask me for permission when you don't need to. You are also allowed to use my stock in the real world for whatever you'd like too, if you can show me a copy I appreciate it :heart:

Premium Content

Tue Jul 10, 2012, 4:38 PM
I am so excited that dA has enabled us to sell premium content right here on dA. I have uploaded my first premium content background:
The Tower and the Sea Background by joannastar-stock

I want to reassure you that I will continue to produce free stock and resources; I have no plans to make anything in my existing gallery into premium content and I anticipate that most things I make in the future will be free.

However, even though up until now all my stock has been free to you to use, it hasn't been free to me to make. It takes time, petrol money, a good camera, a willing husband - all sorts of things. This is why some of my future content will be paid for.

Thank you for all the stock uses and support I've got over the years. I do this for love and I'm honoured when people choose my resources for their art. ♥

Don't Forget...

I want you to use my stock! Don't wait to ask my permission first! ;P

On dA you must give me a link to where you used it so I can check it out :) For usage off dA, please link me if possible, but if you used it on a private msn group or something, this is not necessary.

However, you must a) tell me, b) put in your rules for that stock that I should be credited too, and c) put in your rules for that stock that I must be notified too.

Hello, I just want to inform you that I will be using one of your Elasmosaurus images for my powerpoint presentation in a college lab (Geology- we are covering dinosaurs). I will make sure you are cited, too. Thank you for creating fantastic images, and for allowing them to be free for use (within reason, of course!). Have a nice day~!!! :D

​Hi Joanna,

I wanted to send you some images from the West Hartford Children's Museum's Dinosaurs exhibit that just opened. I got to visit it after it opened, and the children seem to love the game with your illustration is in the most! 
Thanks a lot for your image of the Elasmosaurus!
