I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).

to make a journal with some of my favourite stockers
Why they are my favourite? Well they are for several reasons!
Each of those who will be listed here, will have:
good to excellent quality,
Sizes which are usable beyond webpics shortest side at least 1200,
(that excludes cutouts, jewellery or any stuff you wouldn't need as primary object in your manip and seamless patterns)
Rules that allow commercial usage (at least on dA and on request for outside dA)
Rules that allow outside dA usage without being forced to slap the stockers name ON the artwork itself.
or Rules that are fully unrestricted
This includes stock-providers that take a few points for their stock, because I rather pay a few points if the TOU's & quality are grea

and tried not to liken them
