Too (BLANK) Tuesday Update
"Too (BLANK) Tuesday" began a few weeks ago and we've been having a lot of fun with it. Please join me in marveling at just how cool (and wacky) my friends are. Also, Tuesday is coming up! Join in the fun and post something crazy!

Hulk Scream by Cassy-Blue ~ To Heavy Reading Tuesday by Null-Entity ~ Too OOC Tuesday. by ARCrebs ~ TOO FUNNY TUESDAY by magikstock ~ Too Catty Tuesday by ARCrebs ~ Walk like an....Frankenstein? by Cassy-Blue

Check out the full-size images for additional humorous commentary. And then check out the rest of their galleries for the "real stuff", because each of these artists is excellent!

Too (BLANK) Tuesday Summary
I am kicking off what I hope will be a weekly feature titled: Too (BLANK) Tuesday, in which I will post an image each Tuesday that I would otherwise NEVER post. The (BLANK) of course can stand for "goofy" or "weird" or "strange" or "conceptual" or "under exposed" or anything else that normally renders a stock image un-postable. T(B)T images may not be that useful, but perhaps they will be interesting or funny. Or both.

For example, "Hey, it's 'Too (BLANK) Tuesday' so I guess I should post that image of me wearing the Winnie The Pooh pajamas with the little footies sewn into them..." :D

I challenge all of my stock-producing comrades to join me in this exciting (and ridiculous) new trend. You know you have 6 metric tons of really horrible images hidden away, so here's your chance to do something with them. The goofier the better!


Too Cool 4 School by :icondragon-kiss: ~ Dragon-Kiss

Too cool 4 school by Dragon-Kiss

One of my favorite stock-use images of all time, made by one of the most clever and technically competent compositors out there; Dragon-Kiss. I love it because it was made using a T(B)T image that I posted (didn't think it would be used for anything) and also because I get to drive off a cliff with dear friend SenshiStock (aka Sakky Attacky). His work is always very fun and very well made. 

Artist friends! Sharpen your pencils and calibrate your styli; there's a new Green Cat Cabaret Contest on the horizon. Stay tuned for details and check out some Green Cat info to prep.  Here are some links:……

The Green Cat: Live Your Story by jademacalla

Jade's Stock Usage Boilerplate

The rule of thumb with my stock is: (Almost) No Rules. Do whatever non-commercial thing you want with them. Use them for pose references. Create astounding composite images. Tweak the saturation by 1% and call it art (perhaps it is). Print them out and use them for target practice or make origami stoats. If you are inspired to DO something, then I am happy. You do not have to credit me or show me what you do with them, but (as any sane person would) I would love to see what you create.

If you can somehow use them to help you make a little dough that's great, just contact me so we can work something out.
