Just curious, but as a stock provider (can I say that?) what are your views on people using stock as anatomy practice (e.g. sketches and the like)? Is that alright? Because I want to do that for self-improvement, but if I feel like sharing my progress, does it matter that the image was not digitally manipulated or anything. I don't want to step on any toes!

Using my stock as reference is perfectly fine :) I get a lot of people that use my work simply for that. I can't speak for others, although I would guess that most don't mind.

I uh didn't see we had to ask permission first, but I used your stock as a reference for [link] , so I guess I'll ask permission now? If I don't have it, I'll take it down!
But if I do get it, thank you! It was just what I was looking for!

I wanted to use one of your stocks has reference for a character that I will be making for someone as a point commission. Do I need your permission before I receive payment for it, or do I simply credit you in the comments and send you a link of the finished work?

Hello! How do you feel about posting manipulations using your stock on sites other than dA? I always like to show my work at this little community called Elftown if at all possible. :)
