We figured we'd go ahead and make this journal to help cover any previous asked (or potentially asked in the future) questions to better help people out with using/understanding our account. This may be updated periodically to include more questions/information.
What is this account, exactly?
This account offers free-to-use (obviously abiding by our terms) stock. People can use it as references for their artwork or in photomanipulation. It's just us contributing to the stock providers on Deviantart.
FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?
You keep saying "we/our/us", why?
There are actually two of us running this account. One is the main model which you see in the gallery and the other is the photographer (which you may see parts of in the gallery, haha).
Who am I talking to then?
99.999% of the time you will be talking to the photographer. If the model replies to comments, I usually have him state that it's him talking.
Who are you people?
One post-college employed citizen and an unemployed wannabe artist who sit on our butts all day in front of the computer. (The model wants me to mention that he parkours sometimes.)
We decided to go with that name because only one of us is male and the other isn't and both contribute stock to the account
They are linked on every Deviation page, at the top of every journal and on our profile. Also right here
How do I get all the images?/Where do I find the other pictures of the set?/The images at the bottom are so small, I can't see them!
Please DOWNLOAD the file to access the full size images in each set. The downloadable ZIP file is linked at the right of the preview image. (Above "More Like This")
What are the martial arts poses? Karate or?
The model took Tae-kwon-do for many years in the past so many poses will be from that however some poses are fairly generic/widespread.
Why do poses have turnarounds? I want more poses instead.
We do more angles as some people may want one pose from the back and someone else may want one from the front, etc. We want to cover as wide a range as possible to help as many people as possible.
What if I want x picture but from the opposite side/angle? May I flip the image?
Yes! Feel free to flip/turn/transform the images in whatever way you see fit to suit your needs.
What do the [N] and [C] mean?
[N] means the stock photo is taken nude and [C] means it's taken with clothes (most likely briefs).
Why are you doing all the poses in both nude and clothed? Why not just one or the other?
For nude: These pictures are references for people who may want to know what the body looks like when it's in these positions. Not wearing clothing allows for full access to see exactly how the body looks like with no obstruction of view.
For clothes: Not everyone is okay with seeing/using naked people as stock so to accommodate, there are clothes equivalents of each pose.
May I make a request/suggestion?
Certainly! Just please be sure to check our list first (in our profile ID) to see if it may already be on there. Also keep in mind that we don't have Mary Poppins' bag at our disposal to us so not every prop/set/etc. is readily available/attainable to use.
How tall is the model?
The model is about 5'7'' or about 170cm.
Are you doing this all for free? Why?
Yes! All for free (Remember to abide by our terms though!)
We know the importance of needing references (especially as an artist myself) and we're happy to release these things for free. As for the model of this account, he feels digital goods could and should be offered on a donation basis.
I wanna support you two, how can I show my appreciation?
First of all, thank you x3 Secondly, you're welcome to use our stock, share it with your friends, etc. If you'd like to donate money to us, you're welcome to do that as well via this link. If you would rather donate points, you're welcome to do that as well although money is preferred as that helps us pay for things like food and internet. (We'll still love you even if you don't/can't donate.)
If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us!
Thank you all for your continued support!
