:bulletpink: Images must meet all the requirements set out in the Stock Guidelines

:bulletpink: They must have a human model that is either nude or wearing form fitting clothing which allows the figure's form to be easily seen. Underwear, leotards, spandex, etc. is best. This means that models should not be wearing ordinary street clothes, i.e., no jeans, no skirts, nothing baggy or loose. Please try to avoid black because black does not allow the form to be seen clearly.

:bulletpink: Nude stock MUST be submitted into one of the Nude Stock folders - either Male or Female. Nude Stock includes any stock where DA would require a mature content filter.

:bulletpink: The image must be submitted into the proper DA Stock category - nothing from Photography or other galleries. We are not currently accepting work that you have to pay to use.

:bulletpink: All Contributors and Members are limited to 3 submissions per day (this rule might change occasionally so check it once in a while)

:bulletpink: You can submit partial body images, though full body is encouraged

:bulletpink: Do not submit stock that is overtly sexual in nature or focuses on a model's genitalia

Admin and Founders reserve the right to reject any image for any reason.

About #dAPoses

Submissions Policy Large Stamp by CelticStrm-Stock

Your photography is lovely, but if your submission is NOT in the STOCK & RESOURCES section of DA, we cannot accept it here! :heart:


Be sure to review the submission guidelines to the left before submitting to the group.
We have VERY SPECIFIC guidelines for submission and you will be declined if you do not meet the requirements.

This group is run by :iconsenshistock: and :iconskydancer-stock:. Please contact us if you have questions or need help.

Welcome to the dAPoses! This is a group for deviants to join and submit stock photography that can be used for pose reference for the human figure. You do not have to be an exclusively pose reference stock provider to join, but only stock suitable for figure study should be submitted to the group (see guidelines below).

Artists who are looking for a pose reference resource can watch this account and have access to new and inspiring poses!

:star: Stock Providers! :star: Please let me know if you would like to become a Contributor! Contributors are able to submit to the gallery folders from the Gallery tab. You must have model stock already available in your gallery to be accepted as a Contributor (though not necessarily pose reference stock if you intend to add it for the group). Contributors can also help manage the gallery.

:thumbsup: Everyone! :thumbsup: You can suggest things to the gallery too! To suggest a submission, go to the deviation you want to submit and there should be a "Suggest to a Group" button along the right side of the page. Please be sure to mind the submission guidelines below!

Submissions to the Favorites are not as strict as the gallery.

How can I view 'Mature content' without having to click on each individual pic, is there a general setting to view all?
skydancer-stock Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2016  Professional Photographer
In your settings is a box you an check to show mature images.
Mortgy Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
If you go to right hand side of home page where avatar shows and hover over it will drop down a menu where 'Settings' are shown. Click on this and then click on 'Browsing' on left hand side and then SHOW where you can tick to see mature content. Hope that helps.

I did manage to find a way, but thank you for taking time to reply : )
Amberwarning Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2016
Hi all, can I just ask (as I can't believe it) are all the photos on here copyright free, am I able to copy and paint any photo  to the best of my representational skills, and sell them ( if I should be so lucky)?
skydancer-stock Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2016  Professional Photographer
Each artists has their own set of rules, but for many, yes, you are allowed to create your work and sell it. The copyrights are still valid, you are simply being given permission by those of us that choose to, to use our work to help you create yours. We still own the original images. :)
Amberwarning Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2016
Thank you for your reply, I am finding my way round the site better now, I shall message and request individual members from your very talented and generous group

Hi! This group is a collection of images from various, individual stock providers. You'll have to check the individual provider's requirements to see what are the license details.

Some providers submit with creative commons licenses through DA's system - you will find License details listed on the lower right column under the camera data on each deviation (image).

For example, everything in my gallery says: "Some rights reserved. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 License." So you can use my poses for reference on anything, even work you intend to sell. It's not copyright free, but the creative commons copyright is very open and this type requires only credit back to the source and notification of its use. For purposes of pose reference, I go a step father and only require artists show me their work; the credit part is optional but greatly appreciated.

There are other Creative Commons licenses that have different requirements, and some resource providers have more detailed rules/guidelines, so it's always best to do your research before using any resource and save yourself any potential personal or legal fallout later on.

I hope that helps! :D
