The questions that I commonly get about me/the stock/life in general. If you have additional questions, just ask!
This was updated in July 2014

:bulletred: What are stock/resources? How do I use them?
FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?

:bulletred: What is SenshiStock?
SenshiStock is a deviantART account full of non nude pictures of people. These pictures are here as a drawing and art creation resource. They can be used for anatomy help, pose reference, help with drawing perspective, and much more! You do not need to be a member of DeviantART to use SenshiStock but you are still required to follow the CC BY 3.0 license for use of the stock.

:bulletred: Can I use your photos?
Yes, but please read the Rules. I promise, they are really easy to follow!

:bulletred: What is the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License?
Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License (CC BY 3.0) is a Creative Commons copyright license. It means you can share (copy, distribute and transmit), modify and make commercial use of the work as long as you attribute the work with a credit back to this account. There's a few more details, so check out that page. It does not mean that the stock is not under copyright or that the stock does not belong to anyone. This is frequently referred to as "Unrestricted Stock" but it still DOES have requirements for use.

:bulletred: So that means I can I post art I've made with your stock as a print/outside DA/on my web site/for a contest/in my portfolio/on a poster/in an art show/in my book/on a tee shirt/etc.?
Yes! CC BY 3.0 includes a commercial license. Please include credit to SenshiStock with a URL to my DA page if you've used the stock in a manipulation. If you've used it for pose reference then credit is greatly appreciated, but not required. Always show me your art! If you make something like a tee shirt, CD cover, print, comic, or another tangible item, I'd love to have one! :D

:bulletred: Do you have [insert specific pose here]?
Sometimes I'm able to find something quickly because I know my gallery better than anyone, but I often cannot take the time to find a specific pose you need. I will likely direct you to a folder or suggest a search, so it's best to start there if you haven't already. The gallery folders are defined and explained here; they should help you narrow it down. There is also a search bar on the gallery tab that can be used to help find things (it says "Search Gallery" and it's white).

If you cannot find what you need in my gallery, I encourage you to try searching the Model section of Stock Images as there are many other stock providers on DA who may have what you need. You can also check the providers I have listed in my POse Ref Stock & Resources You Need To Know list. Sometimes, it's also worth it to collect lots of references that are CLOSE to what you need but not exact. You can study those references to help you create the pose you want. For more help with that technique, check out this tutorial.

If you still cannot find what you need, feel free to leave me a message as a suggestion. See next bullet point.

:bulletred: Do you take pose requests?
I take "suggestions." If you have a suggestion just let me know in a note or comment and if I think it's something I can do, I will add them to the list on the main page. Just keep in mind that I do a shoot every three or four months (or less). In each shoot I take 150-300 photos, then I post them a few at a time over the course of a few months/years. This means that if you have a pose suggestion, it will be a few months (or more) before you actually see it. That is assuming I actually can do it or feel like doing it on the next shoot. There are no guarantees for pose suggestions. It is possible that I will do a commissioned shoot in the future. If and when I do, that information will be posted here.

Some tips when suggesting poses: being specific is helpful. Saying, "do more action poses!" is not as helpful as, "Could you do a pose where it looks like you're leaping from one building to another with your hands as fists?" Also, I'm not familiar with every story that's out there, so asking me to do poses "like so-and-so character from this story" isn't as helpful as linking me to an example of that character's movements or typing out what kind of poses they do, i.e., 'crawling low to the ground on your toes with a knife in your hand.'

:bulletred: Can you/will you do more of [this type of stock]?
See above.

:bulletred: Can I use your stock to make pixel doll bases or blanks for others to use?
Yes you can!! Exclusive bases, public bases, whatever you want! When you post your base if you could ask people to show me their work on it I would love to collect it, but they are not required to credit or notify me (I just like to see the art!).

:bulletred: Can I trace/draw over/grid reference your stock?
There's no restrictions on art creation methods while using my stock. You can make your art by any method you deem appropriate.

:bulletred: Why do you have 'No Critique Desired' on all your deviations? Don't you want helpful feedback? What are you, some kind of snob?
While I'm sure most people want to be helpful, critique is most useful to someone who is passionate about their craft and wants strongly to improve. I am not that someone. This stock is presented on an "as is" basis. That means I make it and you can choose to use it - or not use it - based on how it is right now. I take these photos months before I post them and I'm not going to go back and change a hand or move a foot. I don't like when people are critical about the model's appearance, the model's ability, or other trivial things. I also do not care what you think about composition, lighting, or other photographic qualities. This is not finished work, we are not professionals, and we do this for free and for fun. I am not interested in people's opinions about the content of the stock images - if you don't like it, don't use it or make your own. I get very grumpy about this so please try to be respectful of these wishes. :thanks: For more blather about this topic, please visit this journal.

:bulletred: Why are you wearing just a bodysuit? Why AREN'T you wearing the bodysuit anymore?
This stock is intended mainly to be for reference when creating works from scratch. It is important to me that as much of the form is made clear as is possible. I chose a white bodysuit hoping it would show contour well while remaining somewhat modest. This allows the stock to be seen by deviants of all ages because no mature content marking is required. In some later shoots, I've opted for a two piece shorts/sports bra combo. This was done in order to give people more stomach references. I will likely rotate outfits based on the type of shoot I'm doing (for example, it's much easier to move around and do action type stuff in the shorts, but I might do more simple, standing still poses in the bodysuit or two piece underwear and bra).

:bulletred: Will you do some with costumes? Will you do nude stock?
No. There are tons of AMAZING stock artists on DA that work with stunning costumes or nude models. As per my mission of providing pose reference to a wide audience, my goals with this account are not along those lines. However, I will occasionally post "Surprise" stock which will deviate from my usual format. None of the surprise stock will ever be nude! ;P

:bulletred: Will you put your hair down?
Like clothing, hair can cover up the contour of the neck and shoulders. I try to keep it up and back. I might do a shoot someday with hair as a special theme.

:bulletred: Can you do different lighting?
Probably not. I am working on trying to have even lighting that clearly shows all aspects of the form, though I'm still learning. If you want different lighting, draw it and consider it a challenge, or seek additional resources for the work you want to make. There are some shoots where I try harder than others with lighting - the quality of the stock is not going to be consistent, especially when I have guest photographers who actually know what they are doing.

:bulletred: Why are you wearing nylons in some pics but not in others? Can you not wear nylons? Can you wear nylons?
The older stock will always have nylons; the newer stock is likely mixed with and without them. I wear them when I feel like it.

:bulletred: Why are you wearing heels in some pics but not in others? Can you not wear heels? Can you wear different shoes?
I like heels and many of the characters that I draw wear heels. I do try to vary my footwear, but if you find a pose that is just what you need but the shoes are wrong, try to find another resource that can help you figure it out how the feet should look.

:bulletred: Who are all the people? / Which one is you?
Me, sakkysa, is the main person in the gallery and I run the account. I'm the one usually wearing the bodysuit. Sailor Meguin (meguin) and Sailor Hedor are my friends from college who are also big Sailor Moon fans. Tuxedo AJ was Meguin's boyfriend, but they are just friends now. Tuxedo Jay (not on DA) is a good friend of my husband. Tuxedo Dan and Sailor Epona (not on DA) are two of my best friends. Tuxedo Dan's images are no longer available on SenshiStock because the rights to distribute them have been revoked; sorry for the inconvenience! Moonlight Dan (not to be confused with Tuxedo Dan) is kidchrome, my brother in law and awesome painter. I have done a few collab shoots with Sinned-angel-stock, she is the girl with the paw print tattoos on her leg. In Nov 2012, I did a collab shoot with jademacalla. These images will be noticeably better in quality than my own because he's so fantastically talented. ;D Some of the photos from my Kickstarter book project will occasionally appear. Moonlight Dan and Tuxedo AJ returned for this shoot with four new models: JesJes (a friend from high school), Queen Kat (professional model), Prince Karl (professional model), and Princess Linnie (professional model). The newest male model with the huge chest tattoo is Tuxedo Dave, another friend from high school.

:bulletred: Why are some of your images no longer in the gallery? What if I still have those images saved on my computer?
I know that it's annoying to see images are gone from the gallery, but some images have been removed because the models have rescinded their rights to distribution. I have to respect the wishes of the models and no longer make those stock images available in the account. If you have stored images saved on your computer, you can still use them for pose reference but do not use them for any art in which the photographic representation of that person is actually in the artwork (photo manipulations, etc.). Doing so would be a violation of that model's rights and could result in legal trouble for you and me.

:bulletred: Will you watch me? Will you be my friend?
Sure, I will be your friend. :D But sorry, I only watch select stock providers and clubs or groups to which I belong.

:bulletred: Has anyone told you that you look kind of like Carrie Fisher?
Yes, and thank you :flirty:

:bulletred: Is there any other way to access SenshiStock other than through DA?
Yes! I sell two $20 USB drives that have tons of stock on them so you can access it from any computer. Many of the files are unreleased! Get all the details about those and order them here. Much of the newest stock will be available on before it becomes available here on DA. Check that site for regular updates! You can also sign up for my email newsletter.

I have a limited run of print books available, too. You can get those here.

:bulletred: Who are the kitties!? MOAR KITTIES!
There are three kitties that appear in the stock photos. The older images have lots of pictures of Java. Java was a calico tiger my husband and I adopted from downtown when we lived in our old apartment. She was a street cat and she had a lot of health issues. We gave her a loving home until she was 3. At that time, she was diagnosed with FIP (feline infectious peritonitis) and we had to put her down.

The other two kitties are the cute little Pekoe and my big handsome Earl Gray. They are the best of friends. They aren't as diva as Java was, but they do occasionally appear in photos, usually curiously pawing at or sniffing something.

:bulletred: How tall are you? How much do you weigh?
I am 5' 3 and 3/4" (162cm) without my heels on. I weighed around 120lbs (54kg) pre-pregnancy. Full term pregnancy weight is about 160lbs (73kg). We will see where I end up after!

:bulletred: This is the best thing that's ever happened to me! Where have you been all my life?! Where can I find more stock like this?
I'm so happy the stock is helpful to you! I have collected a list of other places on DA where you can find pose reference type stock. The list includes a note for when the stock is nude in case you'd like to avoid nudity. Happy drawing!

:bulletred: Is that a tattoo on your chest?
Yes! I got a tattoo in January 2012. You can see a full view of it here. It is the Ginzuishou, or 'Silver Crystal', from Sailormoon. I am hoping to get it expanded in the future.

:bulletred: Why are there black bands around your wrists and ankles in some of the photos?
I started using the black bands around the limbs after riordan-j-flynn suggested it as a helpful way to show perspective on poses that had foreshortening. I've also added lines to the bodysuits to help with that, however in many of my recent shoots I have switched to a two piece outfit which has no lines. The cross contour of the bust and waist line can also be useful.

Super Massive Suggestions List

As a reminder: I take SUGGESTIONS not requests (or demands!). If you ask for something I will see about doing it, but there is no guarantee I will and there is NO limit on how long it may take. I draw from this list for inspiration for each shoot but it is by no means a 'to do' list.

Right now I am posting stock from as far back as Jan 2010 to the most recent shoot with the pregnancy stuff in March 2014.

Pose Reference & Stock Resources I Love

There's lots of awesome models on DA and lots of great places on the web to find pose reference and stock! Here's a little list of some great places to check out for some quality pose reference stock:

is a group I founded that accepts submissions of stock photos that are useful for pose reference. To be considered, the model must be wearing form fitting clothing or nude. There are separate folders for nude stock. Watching this group will result in quality pose reference stock appearing in your inbox!

You are here.

Non-nude female full body

Mostly male, mixed undies and nude. Some fem parts.

Her gallery is full of great female reference including some wonderful lying, reclining and sitting poses.

Male stock with underwear on.

has a folder of pole fitness stock photos that are really stunning.

has recently started posting a series of images where he's in just some black shorts. He was already providing amazing action and expressive resources, but this new series is really fantastic for pose reference. There's also some nude stock in the gallery.

Contains non-nude male stock with some action, and couple (m/f) refs with no nudity.

mostly full body female, stock is in a folder

provides some high quality stock photos mainly of herself. Her gallery is very well organized and has a lot of awesome packs available for quick download.

is a fantastic place to go for male nude stock! There's also a ton of images with more than one model. If you need man on man action, this is the account to visit!

has a series called "Melted Wings" which contains really dynamic pose images!

has an MASSIVE gallery, many of the female models are nude and make great pose references!

has a few male pose reference images in his gallery as well as a ton of head and face references.

has an amazing assortment of very high quality, professional resources. Some of the models are nude.

A lot of male reference, mostly pretty classical, nude.

Has some pose reference folders in this section of her gallery. Be sure to check the subfolders!

Has some form fitting clothed pose stuff in this folder

Male, nude, full body, as well as face an anatomy

SenshiStock Sketch is my web app for randomized SenshiStock poses for gesture and sketching practice. Posemaniacs is a fun site with lots of fantastic poses that you can rotate in a virtual space for reference! Also check out for more gesture and sketch practice as well as tutorials.

Feel free to look through the Model Stock I Love folder in my favorites! This is where I tend to collect stock that I find useful for pose reference.

Got any other pose reference resources you think should be listed here? Please let me know!

Happy drawing! :happybounce:

Hey, I was wondering if you guys could do a pose with you looking all smug/in your face, while one the guys just looks annoyed/not impressed?
SenshiStock Featured By Owner 1 day ago  Hobbyist Photographer
I could put it on the suggestions list though there should be some poses like this in the gallery you could combine for effect. Not sure the expressions will be right but it might be easier to piece together from a few places :D

Senshi do know anywhere I can find good references for face structures? I am looking for the different types for male and female: Round, Oval, Square, etc. 
SenshiStock Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist Photographer
Hmm might be worth just poking around the galleries? There's a portrait section and you should fine some variety. Women:… Men:… Not sure any one provider would have it though. Good luck! :D
KibaStray Featured By Owner 2 days ago  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Kind thought that would be the answer. Bummer... Thanks any who. Wish me luck.
