After some thought, we are uncertain if your remark is meant to be sincerely thanking us and sarcastically criticizing the rest of the world for not providing a normal standing pose, or if your remark was meant to sarcastically criticize us because you couldn't think of why a normal standing pose would be useful. If the latter, meh. If the former, you're welcome, happy to help.
it was a sincere thank you. when i search for a standing pose all i ever see are poses where they're jumping in the air or doing strange ballet poses or just not standing at all. So thanks again. Its a very useful reference. I use it alot for my drawing practices.
Model Response: Gotcha. Well, then as said before, you're welcome and we're happy to help. And we appreciate the feedback: We don't look around much at what other stock accounts post, so the best way we have to know what there is a need of is what you folks tell us is most helpful.
Quick question: I have not seen stock photos like this before were the person is half-naked... Are these sort of stock photos meant to be for tracing or with these kinds of stock photos you are expected to add your own clothing and face?
The lack of clothing is to help show more of the body so artists may have an easier time identifying the anatomy. Artists may use the stock as a reference for the base of their drawing (ie the pose and anatomy) and fill in the rest themselves. You can see some examples of what people have done here: mostlyguystock.deviantart.com/…
