All Submissions must be listed in the Resources & Stock Category of dA.

:bulletred: We are specifically looking for beautifully photographed and constructed dynamic poses (mainly full body, either nude, semi nude or clothed appropriately for the pose).

:bulletred: A well lit white or at least plainish background is a bonus, although we know this is not always possible depending on the photographer's situation.

:bulletred: We have numerous folder titles to choose from and poses must be submitted to the appropriate title please.

:bulletred: Poses MUST be of a kind which will be useful to artists who are drawing or painting from scratch, therefore dynamic, interesting and clear.

:bulletred: All photos MUST be categorized as some kind of STOCK IMAGE - any other listing type will be declined.

We will not be accepting the following:

:bulletorange: Poorly lit, badly focused, or 'far away' type pics, as well as overly confusing backgrounds (like foliage), and pics which are not specifically set up to be a pose shot. The aim is to have a clear pose for an artist to replicate, thus it needs to be as large and clear as possible.

:bulletorange: 'Shag-on-a-rock' type poses (meaning the pose is boring, or lumpish, or too similar to a normal snap shot) - Please keep your poses interesting and dynamic. Standard standing, sitting and lying down poses are fine however they still need to look interesting. Standing in an interesting way and standing like a 'fish-wife' is not the same thing.

We will keep a strict standard of professionalism and aesthetics so the gallery will be of a high standard and useful to artists searching for great poses.

These rules may change at any time without prior notice




I was browsing around today and nosing through different galleries and such to just enjoy the site.  There is a lot of cool in the DeviantArt air right now! So sit back, chill, and enjoy!

My group :iconlegitimate-stock: give me too much work for a good management of the other groups I belong to, so I decided to leave your group. I hope you wouldn't worry about my decision: I keep the contact, of course, with the affiliation. :hug:
