: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


Hello everyone! I've decided to hold an art challenge open to both digital and traditional artists. The theme is folklore.


1. You must use at least one stock image from my gallery following my terms of use. 
2. All stock must be credited and from valid sources as defined by DeviantART. 
3. All entries must adhere to the theme. 
4. You may only submit one entry per category. 
5. Entries must include what folklore/folktale it is based on :) I like learning about new stories. 

The theme is broad. You can illustrate a folk tale, a creature from folklore, or a character from folk lore. Here's some great websites to help you:

-Encyclopedia Mythica:
-Ghost Stories/Folk Lore of Japan:
 -Scary Fairies:…
-Wikipedia. Honestly wikipedia is a good jumping point. Also check their references section that can lead to some cool websites. I generally have much of the Irish and Scottish folklore open when writing my urban fantasy story along with Encyclopedia Mythica's folklore and beastry sections. 

Entries can be submitted by note to me, Cassy-Blue, or by comment on this journal. 

Deadline is November 30th at 12:59. Entries will be judged and winners announced on December 6th. 

There will be two categories that work can be submitted to, digital and traditional art. 


There will be one winner for each category. 

Feature from Cassy-Blue, ADamselinDesign,DamselStock, & MariaSemelevich
50 points from Cassy-Blue
Sketch from kadomaru

if you wish to donate prizes, that would be appreciated :)
