: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 :iconadorkastock: 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.

Hey, make sure you set your group admin permissions to "Subject to Vote" or "Are Not Allowed". There has been two notorious group hijackers for over a month now who apply as a co-founders, delete all the artwork in the gallery and favorites, and replace it with gore, scat and porn.
As an example:…
(the NSFW stuff has since been removed but the gallery has been wiped out)

Is it ok to ask a question here? I'm going to look myself, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of any stock images that are like (or similar to) this?

1. A back three quarter view of someone shooting a crossbow.
2. Someone crawling (in my image it's going to be a vent but I guess crawling in general works too)
3. Someone climbing on someone elses shoulders to get a boost. (in my case one of the characters is Pikachu but obviously I won't find something exactly like that)

I'm going to search through deviantart myself but I thought I'd ask just in case anyone here was trying to draw something similar and knows where to look. Thanks!

I'm searching for a photographer with a good portfolio, including in some conventional media. A good friend/artist/muse here on DA (… ) would like some poses from her favorite model, moi, and a photographer in N. Calif is needed.  Please email me at dofaust at gmail for more information.

Thank you for adding me. I'd love to see some reference I can use for fan art of The Last Unicorn. Particularly in poses from the movie of either Amalthea or Molly Grue.

Hey SenshiStock could you ask skydancer-stock why he blocked me?
I don't know what I could do wrong, I just did open his image and saw I am blocked :(

I added in the last time a LOT Stock images to my Stock-Fav's I don't know if... I added some of his images and if adding his image as Fav withotu a comment is some kind of rulebreak for him?

Or did I maybe comment and... he didn't liked it`Then I'm really sorry about it, I wanna try to stay friendly here.


Btw. I didn't created and uploaded any image int he last time, so... it can not be the reason that I used anything without credits :<

Hope its okay if I post a paid opportunity ad here? 

I'm in need of nude reference photographs of some very specific poses (I can provide sketches) of two male models interacting for a painting. Please get in touch if you're interested! Thank you!
