When this group was started in 2010, was intended to provide a resource that was extremely hard to find on DA, images of the human form uninterrupted by clothing or other items. However with the increasing time it takes to run this group and the fact that we are no longer the only group that provides this type of stock, I find that the best solution for the group will be merging with another.
In this case the group will be
dAPoses has a large grouping of images that suits the needs of the members here while also catering to other needs that this group never addressed. I am going to do my best to insure that all of the stock contained in our group is quickly transferred over, but the group has different and more strict submission regulations so please understand that not everything we offered will be able to make the move.
I have been given assurances from the groups owner that any member of our group will be accepted with open arms there. Please let em know if there are any issues with having you membership or your images transferred over.
This group will disband by month's end.
Here is a copy of their submission requirements for you all to get acquainted with:
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A STOCK GROUP! Your photography is lovely, but if your submission is NOT in the STOCK & RESOURCES section of DA, we cannot accept it here!
Be sure to review the submission guidelines below before submitting to the group.
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.
Artists who are looking for a pose reference resource can watch this account and have access to new and inspiring poses!
Stock Providers! 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.
Everyone! 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.
RULES FOR SUBMISSIONS TO GALLERY
Images must meet all the requirements set out in the Stock Guidelines
They must have a 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.
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.
The image must be submitted into the proper DA Stock category - nothing from Photography or other galleries
All Contributors and Members are limited to 3 submissions per day (this rule might change occasionally so check it once in a while)
You can submit partial body images, though full body is encouraged
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.
There will be no feature this newsletter as the group prepares for the merge.
I hope to see you all there!
