My main topic today is something I am asked about rather a lot – the topic of stock requests.
If you're a stock provider that takes requests please be aware that some people have really odd fetishes – and their reasons for requesting stock might not be for art purposes. I have seen requested stock taken off dA and used on fetish websites.
If you're noted for a request doing a quick few checks can ease your mind greatly.
:bulletblue: Check their gallery – does it have manipulations or referenced drawings in? Or is it empty?  
:bulletblue: Has the requester added about a zillion photos to the collection "Dead sexy feet"?
:bulletblue: Do a quick sweep of the stock gallery – have other people done the same type of stock for them? Have they ever been used?
:bulletblue: Don't be afraid to ask them why they want a certain type of photo – if it's legit they wont mind telling you – and don't be afraid to say no.

If you are requesting stock a brief description of what you intend to use it for can make all the difference. :)

:hug: No problems. I liked it too. We are always short on male stock so it's good to see some posted that is useable. :)

I also enjoy Keith.

Thank you so much for featuring my stock =^_^=

As for requests. I have done some for people who just love to see them. I don't mind doing that kind as long as they are creative and interesting enough to be useful, a good addition to my gallery =^_^=
I see them more as "suggestions", and they have been good ones =)
As long as they follow your own rules and boundaries, their OK =)
