ALL IMAGES APPEARING ON THIS GROUP MUST MEET THE FOLLOWING GUIDELINES TO BE SELECTED:

: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

Stock & Resources


What you need to know about Pre-Cut Images:




Pre-cut images can be a very handy resource for artists looking to save some time on the extraction process of stock.  These images are isolated from their primary background in a .png or .psd format. These resources should be well extracted with a clear attention to detailed removal, and a lack of stray particle pixels.


What these should contain:



- They should come from resources that allow for redistribution, typically your own images.

- The pre-cut image should have its original source cited in the artist’s comments, including your own images.

- They should meet the minimum size requirements of 1000 x 1000 pixels.


What these should not contain:



- They should never contain Google, celebrity, anime, movie screen shots, or retail website images. These so-called “renders” are not permitted in the Stock & Resources gallery.

- They should not be smaller than the required minimum size guidelines.

- They should not contain excessive amounts of stray pixels or missing significant portions of the image being extracted.

- They should not come from resources that do not allow for adaptation and redistribution. This includes other stock websites and pay sites that have non-redistribution clauses in their EULA.


Relevant FAQ Regarding Pre-Cut Images:





FAQ #809: What are deviantART's stock image guidelines?

FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?

FAQ #257: What sort of permission do I need to use someone else's work?

FAQ #157: Can I use things created by other people in my submissions?

FAQ #792: As a stock art resource provider, how can I be of help in regards of stock art resource usage in prints?

FAQ #306: Does "Crediting" let me use whatever I want?


In closing:



Your obligation as a stock provider is to provide safe and legitimate resources for artists to use. By using your stock, they trust that you are adhering to DeviantArt Guidelines with the stock that you provide. Failure to abide by the guidelines that dA provides not only impacts you, but our community, and the artists that use your stock.

But what if we see someone sharing celebrity, etc. pre-cut images? Be a pillar of the community and show them how wonderful our stock world can be. Do not go on the offensive with attacks and shaming journals. Work with them, and try to teach them. It may be possible that they are new and are unaware of the guidelines regarding pre-cuts. If all else fails, use the proper reporting channels located on the right hand side of the deviation page.

The Stock & Resources Community is a unique and wonderful place. We support each other, and accept new providers with open arms.
