Pose Reference Stock Resources You Need To Know
There's lots of awesome models on DA and lots of great places on the web to find pose reference and stock! Here's a little list of some great places to check out for some quality pose reference stock:
is a group I founded that accepts submissions of stock photos that are useful for pose reference. To be considered, the model must be wearing form fitting clothing or nude. There are separate folders for nude stock. Watching this group will result in quality pose reference stock appearing in your inbox!
You are here.
highly recommended male model, contains non-nude male stock with some action, and couple (m/f) refs with no nudity.
has an MASSIVE gallery, many of the female models are nude and make great pose references! There are also some self portrait pose references in the bearded, wizard type variety. :giggle: 
Mostly male, mixed undies and nude. Some fem parts.

The Mind of an Artist
As artists our minds are never at rest — we can’t help but look at things much differently than most other people. Creative individuals; be it photographers, writers, Illustrators, sculptors, conceptual designers or animators. We are constantly observing and studying the functionality and process of everything that surrounds us. We are curious by nature.
On a sunny day, during a walk in the woods or a hike in a canyon; a swim in a lake or a visit to the zoo — even just watching our pets play and interact. We are studying how things are constructed, how light hits the leaves, how the shadow and light converge and the saturation of color transforms between the contrasts of value.
We can’t help but look at an animal or a person and notice every wrinkle, fold of skin, tuft of fur, strand of hair, every bone, muscle, tendon, ligament and vein — reacting underneath the surface. The feeling different colors invoke, the cool bre

A CR 5 aberration with a tentacle multiattack and probably some psionic shit that will fuck you up
...what you need is right in front of your face, hiding in plain sight.

For the first time in a looooong time, I feel competent.  I have something to hang on to, someONE to learn from.  Where did I find it?  Why, on YouTube, of all places.  Let me explain...

Three days ago, I was paddling around in my studio, wishing I could have had the scratch to attend the Feng Zhu Design School.  Let's get real:  I'll probably never have that kind of money, and there will be NO MORE student loans for me.  Well, I happened to follow a link from Facebook to a tutorial that Mr. Zhu posted.  Doing that led me to THE MOTHERLODE.  Turns out, Feng Zhu believes in sharing information, not hoarding it.  He also believes that just because someone lacks money they shouldn't be denied knowledge.  Turns out Feng Zhu is a man after my own heart.

Since then, I've been busy every day, taking in his lessons, then turning around and applying them immediately.  It may not show, but I feel more competent to create than I was three days ago.  I've learned a lot in just three days!  I haven't tried everything I've learned yet, but I'm going to - it feels so good to approach my machine without the ghosts that have haunted me since my days in videogames.  No haters, no jealous folks, no mockery - just learning, absorbing new techniques and finally figuring out how to do digital art RIGHT.

The Creator sends us where we need to go, when we need to be there.  I'm wasting no time wishing I'd found FZD sooner.  THIS was the right time, the right place.  And though this piece ain't where I want it to be, I know I can come back to it and finish at any time.  Until that day comes, I'm gonna keep on studying, and become the greatest Pokemo - (ahem) artist I can be!  Come with me... ^_^
