HUGE HOLIDAY STOCK FEATURE!!!!!!!!
(Hm. Did I put enough exclamation marks?) Oh well, good enough. This has got to be the most epic feature I've done yet! : D I hope you all enjoy; this will be up until the end of December.
So here are the coolest and most fun holiday stock resources I could find--anything you could ever need for your yuletide creations! From funny to traditional, to religious, it's all here! And so, here I showcase a North Pole-sized bunch of fantastic stock photographers and their relatively unseen stock and resource pictures for use for reference, photomanipulation, and other sundry awesomeness. So please, check these guys out! *** And remember to read the photographers' stock rules--VERY important.
Oh, and speaking of yuletide contests...=DamselStock
is holding a Christmas Elf contest--if you want a place to put these stocks to use, check it out! [link]
Note--I went out and found more pics, and I do have a few well-loved ones here because I thought they were awesome and useful resources for all your photomanipers. C: First off--models! We've got kids, we've got elves, we've got Santa and Mrs. Claus...and much more: Here, we have Christmas trees--decorated and not, lighted and not--even a few non-evergreens, submitted here for your use: Next--Ornaments! Everything you need to decorate the aforementioned digital trees: And some gifts to put beneath: These are religious and culture-specific resources--ones that portray the respect and dignity of winter holidays and celebrations, as well as more traditional depictions:

Feast your eyes: Some cozy (and crazy) indoor scenes: And stockings to put on all those mantels: Here are some plain old winter scenes...perfect for sledding and sleighing (as opposed to slaying) and snowball fights: How about some cards? From the cute to the scary: Sleighs, sleds, and other transportational needs! Here are some fantastic pre-made resources--scrap kits and wallpapers and 3-D models, and all sorts of digital goodness: Bokeh and other textures--great for backgrounds! And last, but not least--a scene or three! Gorgeous buildings, breathtaking vistas for Santa to ride through, or perhaps to fill with laughing children or monsters on red and green unicycles...:
