Donate

HOTNStock has started a donation pool!
1,000 / 1,000
Any points donated will either go toward renewing my premium membership or toward prizes in group contests.

You must be logged in to donate.
**UPDATE 2:** The officially end date for the contest will be March 22nd.  I will be extending it three more weeks to encourage additional entries and for people to wrap up anything they may have in progress.  The contest will not be extended again so please be sure to have all entries in no later than the 22nd.  Thanks!

**UPDATE: The wolves references can now to found here: sta.sh/22eom6spdqe **  Please just remember that these are for contest use only and are not general stock.  I have also provided some background options, although you are free to use others.


This is a contest to promote the wolves from The Wolf Mountain Nature Center, where I volunteer.  All submissions must be of the Wolf Mountain wolves.  My hope is to see contest entries that reflect each wolf's personality and/or help promote the true nature of wolves.  You can see each pack's profile below.  

Entries can be digital, traditional or photo-manipulation type art.  Feel free to get creative with your entries, although the wolves must be recognizable.  All submissions should be sent via note.  Contest end date is tentatively February 28th.  

Things to keep in mind:

    1.       The images provided of these animals are for CONTEST USE ONLY.  You may post contest entries into your deviantart accounts but please do not use these images as general stock.  Once the contest has ended, please discontinue all use of provided stock images (unless you received explicit permission from me to continue use).

    2.       All of my general stock rules apply to this contest including the rule regarding non-commercial use and requiring proper credit for off dA use.

    3.       Remember that different images of the wolves are from DIFFERENT SEASONS.   Please do not mix and match winter coat images with summer coat in photo-manipulations.  The difference between their plush winter coats and thin summer coats is quite obvious.  If you are photo-manipulating a winter, fall or early spring scene, use the winter coats.  If you are going for a late spring or summer image, use their shorter coats.

    4.       You are not limited to how many contest entries you can submit but please keep in mind quality over quantity. 

    5.       Remember that this contest is to promote The Wolf Mountain Nature Center (which is where I volunteer) wolves.  Please do not use other animals in the entries, although I may provide coyote and/or arctic fox images for use upon request as we also house them at the facility.

    6.       If you use stock that is not from my gallery, please confirm with the provider that using the created piece in TWMNC’s gift shop is acceptable. 

    7.       TWMNC is a non-profit, 501c3 organization and gets not financial assistance from the federal government.  None of the facility’s staff or volunteers are paid and all proceeds go to the care of the animals and upkeep of the facility.  www.thewolfmountainnaturecente…

Meet the ‘packs’:


Dancing Turtle, Nakoa, Tashina – The ‘main pack.’  Nakoa is the father of Dancing Turtle, Tashina and also Tala.  As of a couple of years ago, Dancing Turtle took over the role of dominant male in the pack and Nakoa has become beta.  Dancing Turtle is a very large wolf (approx. 140lbs) but is more cautious than his father and sister.  Nakoa is a very easy-going, social wolf and has a fairly mellow personality.  Tashina, although the only female, is the pack omega and fulfills this role quite nicely, preventing most serious disputes between DT and Nakoa.

Hunter, Natani – Hunter is the center’s only rescued wolf and he had a rough upbringing in his early life.  He has changed a lot since coming to TWMNC and has become a very confident, dominant wolf.  Natani is the mother of the DT, Tashina and Tala but was separated from the main pack due to disputes with her daughters.  This worked out well since Hunter desperately needed a companion.  He and Natani get along amazingly.  While Natani might look quiet and mellow, she is actually quite intense.

Seneca, Cayuga – These two are brothers and used to be members of the ‘main pack.’  Unfortunately, they are very ambitious boys and tried to take control of the pack when they hit maturity around two and a half years old.  They now live separately and currently Cayuga is in charge, though this is known to change on occasion.  Their personalities are quite opposite as Seneca is very cheerful and outgoing while Cayuga is introverted and shy.

Tala - Tala is a very dominant female wolf and thus currently live alone at the center as she cannot get along with any other females.  Our hope is to get her a male pup companion soon.  She is a very cheerful, outgoing wolf.  (Should you feel inclined, you may include her in images with Seneca/Cayuga as she shares a fence line with them and interacts with them through it on occasion.)

Journal History

Rules

The following are the rules for using my stock:

-Provide proper credit for any of my stock used whether it be for a photomanipulation or drawing reference.

- MY IMAGES MAY NOT BE DISTRIBUTED THROUGH OTHER WEBSITES OR APPLICATIONS.

- Do not make/post precuts of my stock. I would like the original image to be the only one available for stock use unless I personally post another version.

-If planning on using my stock for off-site purposes, please send a note to find how to provide proper credit. Photomanipulation images created for off-site purposes must have a signature watermark by the artist or credits directly on the image to prevent art theft. It is recommended that referenced art also have a signature but it is not required.

- DOG STOCK LINE MAY NOT BE USED IN GORY OR EXCESSIVELY VIOLENT WORKS.

- NONE OF MY STOCK MAY BE USED IN ANY PIECE WITH AN ANTI-CONSERVATION TYPE THEME OR MESSAGE.

-Noncommercial uses only for stock. Use of my stock for commission reference is usually fine so long as credit for the reference is given.

-While it is not required, it is nice to be sent links to deviations where my stock is used. This gives me an opportunity to favorite the pieces and also lets me know what stock is most used/what I should post more of in the future.

-Feel free to note me with any other questions.

On Comments and Notes

While favorites are great, I really love receiving comments and also love to see the work that has been done with my stock. I try to reply to each comment and often leave comments on and favorite the works done with my stock. My replies may be late but I will do my best to assure that they come. Notes are always read immediately although replying sometimes slips my mind. Should you have a question you need answered and I do not reply within a week, feel free to send a follow-up note!

So can we use your stock for manipulation on like a roleplay website? I have just got into it and I found a fox I would love to use for a person on the other site. I will credit here on my page, post it to my page and credit there too. What would you like me to do?

Hi, sorry for the slow response.  You can use my stock offsite but please put credit on the image (it doesn't have to be big) and alter the image somehow so that it is not just the original (Add text to it such as the character name, a quote, etc.).   Thanks for checking with me about it!
