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.

My 10 facts

1. DeviantArt is my home and family. You all have been there for me through the good and the bad, and I adore you for it! :heart:

2. When I get mad, my Arkansas accent comes out. The angrier I am, the more southern I sound. If I start dropping "Ya'll" and "You'uns" start running.

 3. I haz a doggie! I can't remember if I've shared Zoey yet, but after I buy some batteries for my camera and give her a bath, she's going to be my little stock model. She's half Chihuahua and half Daschund, called a Chiweenie. She's super cute and really sweet.

4. I suffer from situational depression from the ovarian cancer and social anxiety disorder. I have days where I'm fine, and other days that I'm not. Aeirmid and mental-health has an article series that is definitely worth a peek at: The Darkest Hour: A feature from Mental-Health

5. Spring is my favorite season! It's not too hot, not too cold. Aside from my allergies, I love it. 

6. My outer thigh just above my knee is permanently numb from my surgeries. The area with no feeling is about the size of my palm. It's so WEIRD!

7. I am completely geeking out about the X-Files reboot with the original cast! NERD ALERT! :nerd:

8. I think there might be a sink hole in my back yard. I'm completely phobic of caves, so I may just be paranoid. There's a depression that has gotten about two feet deeper in the last two years that I've lived in this house. I am going to be so pissed if I fall into a sinkhole, I can't even explain the level of hulked out anger for that. lol

9. My favorite color right now is purple. I change favorite colors every now and then. :D

10. I chickened out of getting that tattoo on Valentine's Day. Well, I cheaped out more than chickened out. They wanted $100 for the tattoo I designed, so maybe I'll do it later. lol

diphylla's Questions

1. What is your favorite TV show? The Walking Dead

2. Why did you join DeviantArt? I wanted to learn more about art, and it looked like fun.

3. What song would you make the theme song of your life? Another one Bites the Dust.

4. Would you rather be poor and have love or be rich and forever be alone? I'd rather be poor with love. I'm used to that lifestyle anyway. :D

5. What is your favorite symbol (ie: star, moon, cross etc)? The triquetra/Trinity Knot.

6. Apple or Android? Eh, I dont really have a preference.

7. Most embarrassing moment of your life? Soooo not telling all the details. It involves a june bug that went up my pants, and the pants that I came out of in a restaurant, though.

8. If you could never do art again... how would you feel? Miserable.

9. Name your top 3 choices for places you'd love to live: Bahamas, Ireland, or upload myself into DeviantArt. :D

10. What is your biggest fear? Why? CAVES! I have full blown panic attacks at the thought of being in or near a cave. There's something about the vast endless darkness that terrifies me. People often mistake my fear for claustrophobia, but it's not the small spaces that scare me. It's the unknown drop offs into the blackness of no return that give me the shivers.

My 10 Questions for You

1. What form of water would you rather swim in? (Pool, Ocean, River, Lake, Pond)

2. What is the weather like where you are right now?

3. What is your favorite cheat food?

4. What is your favorite song?

5. How many siblings do you have, if any?

6. What is your worst pet peeve?

7. If you could be any villain or hero, who would you be?

8. If you could have any animal for a pet, real or mythological, what would it be?

9. Do you sing in the shower?

10. How many images are in your DeviantArt gallery? (You can check the count under your stats.)

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:
