I need stock only for references, the watermark is of no harm there so I don't ever buy it :iconmingplz: But if I have there also would have been a huge folder of unused stuff piled there marked as "promise to myself: one day I'll get to it " :XD:

Yes I have, that reminds me I better start using it :giggle:
I bought stock of a lady and my cumputer had two heart attacks :-) and I could'nt retrieve the stock, luckily the stock profider was really nice about it and sent it to me twice. This happened again a few months later but I could'nt pick up the nerve to ask her again to send them to me as it was a lot of image for her to download to my email againand thought she might think that I was selling them :blush: I will try and save purchased stock on a disk from now, it saves all these little embarrassments :faint:

Yes, damn it. And the worst part for me is when I buy it and then totally lose whatever inspiration I had and suddenly don't even want to use it. Argh!

I own a lot of exclusive stock. Much of it is still unused and a good portion of it was purchased with good intentions to support the stock artist. I don't know if I will ever use it all in my lifetime, so I'm wondering if I can leave it it my Will...

it depends on what im working on at the moment, i have foolishly once bought 200 dollars worth of stock and never used it due to my subject changing . Now i take step by step and start on a piece before subjecting my pocket book to suffer any more consequences due to my lack of control. Aall the toys from my new piece are from shutter stock.

I bought this awesome fish stock once to use in a clam chowder but then I forgot it in my freezer - it's still there. I guess I'll use it the next time I make a chowder.

Nope... Don't buy stock. If I need a reference for something I prefer to make it myself... If I can't shoot it with a camera, I scour the Internet for good refs. :)

I generally don't purchase stock. It is not that I wouldn't, but..sense this is a hobby for me and one I am amateur at best with, so not making a profit I feel that if I am really going to purchase the stock I better have the idea and everything else firmly in place beforehand.

It is if you work commercially :iconfatlaplz: but that's just my opinion and I prefer to be able to use the stock for covers etc so I prefer to buy than then find that stocker forbids commercial use :iconnotimpressednomplz:
