I skimmed through this gallery and I'm absolutely in love with the poses! They're simple, natural, elegant, dynamic and fun. There are poses of various types, including sitting, kneeling and angled poses.

The stock rules allow for these images to be used as references in originally drawn artwork without credit, although I do recommend crediting out of appreciation! The stock also falls under a Creative Commons license, meaning you are free to make commercial use of the work (aka use the pose references for commissions).

The only downside of this stock is that it is largely female-only, and mostly features the same model, which may be inhibiting if you're looking for variety. However, the images are of really good quality, making them excellent anatomy and pose references. :)

Just thought I'd share!

That stock is what I used when I did that picture of Minda for you. I love some of the poses.

I'll have to take a peek at those later (on my phone and in bed right now)! Do they all allow their stock to be used without crediting them in the artwork/for commissions? If not, it might be a good idea to note that behind the link(s), or remind everyone to read the stock rules. They're very important after all. :)

Edit: I looked through a couple of them, I LOVE most of these! Some do have very specific rules for commercial use of the images. Not all of them are detailed on whether this applies to only photo manipulations, or also using the stock photos as references. Most of them require you to contact the photographer with a link to the finished piece plus credit.

A general message to everyone who wants to use stock photography: ALWAYS check the rules, and ALWAYS abide to them! You're getting a lot of good stuff for free that you usually have to pay big bucks for, the least you can do is make sure you have permission to use their stuff in commissions and link back to them. :D
