#StockTalk - DeviantART's Interactive Stock Chat!#stocktalk is DeviantART's newest stock chatroom#StockTalk - DeviantART's Interactive Stock Chat! by ssecret
With benefits for both stockers and those who use it! There are big plans for this chat room, and we hope to have more stockers & manipers interacting as the chatroom progresses. Here is a little list of things that we plan to do in the future!
These sessions will act as a form of inspiration for stock artists. We will have a "panel" of stockers who would like to participate in the session, as well as you all requesting images from them. After you explain specifically what you would like to see from the stock artists, they will give you a "yes", "no", or "maybe". The panel of stockers is welcome to ask you questions or even give out special packages to manipulators of their choice.
Interested in seeing how stock artists do their thang? Want to become a stocker yourself? Learn from the best! We will ha

Our mission is to remain a privately held company, we feel that taking a financing round under typical terms would seriously impair our ability to properly serve the community and would p
