I used this to make a picture of a Stargate alien here:…

Thanks for the excellent stock! :)
What an amazing piece! 

It really captured exactly the image I had for my "stretch and strengthen" class at Jurmaine Health, Melbourne, Australia.


For me, the tiny detail that makes this picture amazing are the sneakers. Ordinary and mundane, they ground all that incredible beauty and vigor. And by remaining in near-silhouette you're making a universal statement, as if intentionally illustrating Shakespeare's line, "What a work of art is man."

Thank you for the CC license! The picture is wonderful and I used it on my "workshops" page: [link]

I teach people and businesses the power of information and how to keep it save (Privacy and Internet safety mostly)

I really love this pose so I used it for some Korra Fanart: [link]

I've been doing Tae Kwon Do for a while, but drawing still holds priority. :)
