How I (Finally) Got Good SkinI get lots of compliments on my skin in my photos. I got told yesterday on my latest set how nice it was. I won't ever deny it; I use photoshop to take out distracting blemishes, but for the most part, my skin is how you see it. I wanted to go into a bit more depth on how I got to this place. This journal may get a bit gross at times, just sayin'
My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne.  Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you

I can see you're new here. It's really important to respect models on this website, especially ones that provide stock and resources for you to use. We are not objects, and we are not interested in hearing catcalls about our body. Be polite when interacting online. There are real people behind the screen.

Looks like a wonderful pack! I just bought it and whenever I try to download and unzip it, it says the folder is empty :/ Anyone else having this problem?
RobynRose Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2014
I just got a message yesterday from another deviant saying something similar. There hasn't been problems before now, hundreds of people ahve downloaded it fine.
I don't know if the file got corrupted on Deviantart's end or what. I will see if they can help.
NathL-fr Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2014
really a good idea this "from above" pack!
but the photos have a lot of noise, missed some lights :)

BlueStoneArcher Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you very much for putting this together!  This is always a difficult angle to get right with illustrations, and I appreciate your efforts with not only putting it together, put being so creative with your expressions and posture.  Kudos! Very good work!
Ravna-Resta Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Great references, I've just purchased them :la:
Btw, are you not going to make same references, but with a view from down, by chance?
EetrsWorld Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The scraps folder... Oh my god so awesome!
patterns-at-dusk Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2013
You are my hero for posting this!!!! *__* I have literally been looking for 'expressions from above' for.... FOREVER and it was always way too difficult to do it myself and get the position right. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

You're a badass and you know it, so clap your hands.
LizbethLizard Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2013  Student Digital Artist
I love your stocks, I'm gonna purchase it later when I could need it! :)
da-joint-stock Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2013  Student General Artist
Something I think would be really useful here is an alternate pack with views from below. I can imagine them being just as useful as these from-above shots :)
da-joint-stock Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2013  Student General Artist
This looks like an awesome pack!
I don't know if it is just a trick of the light, or if it just my lack of knowledge of human anatomy, but your left shoulder (the one facing the camera) of the preview image looks....I don't know, odd. I know your shoulders look normal by simply looking at all your other stock pics, but that one looks odd. Is the light hitting the muscle in your arm maybe? :)

CuriousPeaches Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
From the preview I love this, such a great stock idea - one I may take inspiration from in the future :). Are you working alone to create your stock (i.e. with a camera on auto)?
DixxieMae Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2013
This is JUST THE PERFECT drawing reference I needed. I'm so bad at topical views and this is so helpful!
BiohazardousDouglas Featured By Owner May 16, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Thanks for the great stock ! I can finally do a good spider girl :D ever thought of cosplaying I wonder ? just a fan question :)
Jehli Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2013
you are soooo pretty oh mah gawd!
Pheromonal Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013
I love how expressionate you are but it would be useful to have a few hands by side with good posture to begin with as well :)
Pheromonal Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013
These have saved me so much time researching. You have excellent stock. I hope you keep it up, I'll keep buying.
RobynRose Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013
thanks. I'm glad there are people out there willing to buy my stock and not steal it. ^^ (see latest journal)
photorip Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
These are great and well worth the purchase. Really like the large size. Hope you do more.
Hazelgee Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Really useful poses, thanks for doing these! Hoping to use one at a future date for reference ;)
