:star: :star: :star: Read the RULES! before you USE! :star: :star: :star:

:bulletpink: You can share and distribute the stock as long as you give credit and link to the DeviantArt account.   Any stock found posted without credit will be seen as in violation of this rule. THIS INCLUDES PLACES LIKE PHOTOBUCKET.  If you re-post this stock somewhere, credit must be given.  Do not direct link to the images on DA's servers as it violates their TOS. (This isn't true anymore since DA added the share buttons. You can now share the stock directly from the page and it will give credit automatically! This info isn't in the translated rules, sorry.)

:bulletpink: NOTIFICATION IS OPTIONAL.  I like to see your art but you aren't required to show me anymore. You can if you want! I will see some of it. :heart: Other places you can tag me for pose use: tumblr, twitter, facebook,  Instagram.

:bulletpink: Credit MUST be given for stock used in photo manipulations.  Prints and off site use is allowed.  A link to this account in your comments is appropriate credit.  For help, read this FAQ page.  For off site, do not just credit to 'AdorkaStock' in text, there must be a live hyperlink to the account.  

:bulletpink: Credit is greatly appreciated when the stock is used for solely pose reference, but it is not required when making original art using the stock as reference.  Please be advised that DA's FAQ suggests linking to stock used to avoid any "confusion or misunderstandings."  A link to this account in your comments is appropriate credit if you would like to include it.  For help, read this FAQ page.  Please send me a link to your work as I would like to see and collect it.

If you still have questions after reading these, please visit my FAQ! :dummy:

Thank you for making this, I've referenced it here-

JustAnotherMadOne's avatar

I love your references so much! I have a question though; is it okay to trace the poses? So, basically the same pose, but flipped because of tracing? Sorry, if I didn't explain myself well.

AdorkaStock's avatar

yes it's 100% totally okay to use tracing as an art technique with my poses! ♥

TBBishiXO's avatar

I had the very same question. As I only need the basic outlines of the pose to fill in the rest myself. I will try to show you my creations every once in a while. It is embarrassing to me to even have to use pose references let alone trace them.... :(


I physically cannot visual anything......


I have used a few in my Webtoon

Driziana's avatar

I think tracing is perfectly okay. 1. it gives practice 2. you learn more about figures.


As long as you ask the creator if you can post and give credit, you're doing perfectly fine!


its highly unlikely to magically understand poses and figures when drawing, practice is almost always required.


It's nothing to be embarrassed about, everyone learns differently!


PS: thats awesome you have your own webtoon!

TBBishiXO's avatar

Awww thank you so much for the reply. I feel happy with the way my art is coming oit right now. All I ever really need is just the figure outline. I do the rest ;)


Thank you so much for that!! I am trying to post weekly but with everything going on in my life, I now have to post every two weeks.

Hi! How should I credit your work when using just small parts of the photos for academic work? Is text mention okay, becuase I don't have an option to include a working link? (I'm making an animated collage of different legs and such, don't ask lmao)

AdorkaStock's avatar

you actually don't have to credit me if you're just using the poses for reference, it's not required. I like to see the art though so if you can/want to show me it's always fun :D

XxAnimaTorixX's avatar

Hopefully I can find the pose I'm looking for! This should prove a big help in studying the human form so I can get better at anatomy either way! You, Senshi, are a GODSEND!!

AdorkaStock's avatar

yay happy drawing!

Shadow-Royale's avatar

I'm awful at drawing people (I'm a total beginner/noob) and only just discovered your profile. Thank you for being a big help to artists everywhere!

AdorkaStock's avatar

ah yay i hope they help a lot!

jillian-artist's avatar

creating drawings with some parts of your great references I recently found - especially the movement poses along with the hands/feet - thanks for all the great references.

AdorkaStock's avatar

yay happy drawing!

tomearts's avatar

AdorkaStock's avatar

I'm always happy to hear it's been helpful! ♥️ ✨

KittehMei's avatar

Thank you for everything you do, you are a blessing to the creative community at large ♥

I tried drawing a character five times today before finding the PEFECT pose in your gallery! Thank you for helping me with my "off" day! (I'll be sure to send a link to the artwork when I finish it.)

AdorkaStock's avatar

ahh yay happy drawing!

I teach Art and am making a how-to-draw-foreshortening video. I love your poses a lot and I would like to include 5 or 6 of your foreshortened poses in the video. May I use them and refer your work on DA as reference for students? I'm under pressure to make everything virtual during the pandemic....

AdorkaStock's avatar
Yes please do and good luck with keeping up with everything <3

Thanks for choosing CC BY 3.0. Your work is fantastic, can't wait to reference some of your images in my own work.


Planning on doing some figure study sessions soon.


Sorry for commenting on your account three times today. Once I realized the extent and quality of your work on DA, I've become a fan.

AdorkaStock's avatar
haha no problem, glad you were able to find the info! There's really nothing required when using the poses for reference, and I do like to see the art but I can't even imagine if everyone who uses it actually tried to show me :'D Happy drawing! :heart:
