WELCOME to Pose-Emporium - Your one-stop-pose-finding-stop!

Here we strive to find the best, most dynamic and exciting poses, as well as the most beautiful and professionally constructed poses for your artistic inspiration.

With already over 1,000 inspiring pose photographs in our gallery, we are one of the premier pose collection groups on Deviant Art!


We would love you to join! Just hit the "Join this group" button at the top of the page and you will be automatically approved!

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



Halloween Fun!

Halloween is two weeks away and I'm totally psyched to have a good excuse to buy candy and lots of it. Halloween is also a wonderful time in the stock community since we're all about that Halloween spirit. I've collected together Halloween contests and features for your enjoyment!

Halloween Gone Wrong - Pixel ChallengeThe end of 2016 is approaching swiftly, and with it a winter holiday-themed contest for the pixel community. While you're staying tuned for that however, I've whipped up a little Halloween challenge for you guys to pass the time.

 Theme: "Halloween Gone Wrong"

Did this year's celebrations turn out funny rather than spooky? Or perhaps a little too spooky? Or maybe something entirely different went awry this time. Let your imagination run wild!
 Medium & General Rules

Quite simply, your work has to be pixel art.

Green Dragon Cat Eye Bullet   You may...
...create an animated piece.
...create anything from a pixelated emoticon, over a pixel icon, to a full-fledged pixel scene.
...incorporate mature content only if it is properly marked as such.

It's Halloween 2016 at Halloween-HQ!
This is the official kickoff journal for Halloween 2016. Do you dare to join us?
You are sitting at your IKEA desk at work, rolling a pencil back and forth over your knuckles in abject boredom. Suddenly, your best friend bursts into your office, panting with excitement. You stop twirling your pencil and sit up, eager to hear the news.
Apparently, he says, the souls of all artists have been ripped violently from their bodies. If someone doesn't find the stolen souls, the loss will be permanent. You stare at him in silence for a moment, feeling the blood rush out of your body. What the hell . . . ?
"Anyway," your friend says, turning on his heel to leave, "I just thought you'd want to know."
You stare at his back as he disappears down the long hallway, your mind working at lightning speed to process what you've just been told. You decide in that moment

The horror genre is a popular entertainment in the publishing and film industries

because it gave them a chance to purge their negative emotions.
He called it Catharsis - the purification and p
