UPDATE: Thanks to everyone that offered to help. The Korean translation is now up on this page, third from the top :w00t!:

I'm looking for a Korean translation of the following SenshiStock usage guidelines for my translation journals. If you are fluent in both English and Korean and can help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it! :D

1) You can share and distribute the stock as long as you give credit and link to the DeviantArt account. Any stock found posted without credit will be seen as in violation of this rule. THIS INCLUDES PLACES LIKE PHOTOBUCKET. If you re-post this stock somewhere, credit must be given.

2) NOTIFY ME! Show me your art! If it's on DA, I will fav it. I also promote some work made using my stock through Thumbshare, stock communities, and my own features.

3) Credit MUST be given for stock used in photo manipulations. Prints and off site use is allowed. A link to this account in your comments is appropriate credit. For help, read this FAQ page. For off site, do not just credit to 'SenshiStock' in text, there must be a live hyperlink to the account.

4) Credit is greatly appreciated when the stock is used for solely pose reference, but it is not required when making original art using the stock as reference. Please be advised that DA's FAQ suggests linking to stock used to avoid any "confusion or misunderstandings." A link to this account in your comments is appropriate credit if you would like to include it. For help, read this FAQ page. Please send me a link to your work as I would like to see and collect it.

Here's a great start from 19773AC:…

For everyone else who came by to read this but can't help, here's some kittens:

Happy New Year! :party:

I will be at Anime Boston this April 3-5 with my plush/art stuff from sakkysa. I will have SenshiStock To Go books and a bunch of USB 1 & 2 Drives. Please stop by and say hi! ^__^

I am skipping a lot of the middle of the year cons again this year because the kiddo is still BFing and I don't want to have to deal with all that jazz. ;P But hopefully in 2016 I can get back to ACen, Otakon, and maybe AnimeNEXT? It will be my big come back.

I haven't done any new stock lately but I'm just dying to do a shoot so hopefully one day while my lovely mum in law is over I can set something up. We're coming up on 6 mo. post-partum so I want to do a 360 turn around for that for comparison. I took some photos with baby and gave them to a base maker that I know so hopefully there will be some mom/baby bases forthcoming. I know it's not the same as a photo ref, but since I'm not super keen on baby being a model it'll have to be the next best thing.

Speaking of which, here's the little bugger. I'm quite liking this mom thing, even if it doesn't currently leave much time for anything else. :3

I keep promising I'm going to add more poses to SenshiStock Sketch. I will at some point, I just have to figure out where we left off and start copy and pasting the fav me links. Tedious coding is tedious. :P

I guess that's all for now! See you on the next update. :heart:

  • Mood: Hungry
The end of the year approaches! :la: I haven't done much post-partum stock but mostly because there's just not a lot of spare time for it. Fortunately, I have a LOT of backlog to post so there's still hundreds of poses to come! ^___^ In the meantime, here's some stuff that's going on right now:

Sketch App Updated!

The web app for sketch practice, SenshiStock Sketch has been updated and now has 749 images in rotation. I hope to have some time to add more soon! If you've used SenshiStock Sketch, please let me know if there are other features you'd like to see.

Hope everyone has a great end of the year, looking forward to seeing lots and lots of amazing art from all of you in 2015!! :D
Hey all!

Many of you have been asking me for something like this for years, so I'm really excited to make this announcement! Thanks to my handsome husband, cairn4, we now have a beta version of SenshiStock Sketch, a web app for gesture and sketching practice using SenshiStock images.  You can also think of it as a SenshiStock randomizer!

Here's what it looks like and how it works:

Check it out here:

SenshiStock Sketch

There's only 463 images right now, but I will be adding more soon. You have the option to change the timer and there's a link to visit the full image on DA if you want to work from it for a bit longer (you can also pause the timer to keep the current image up longer). This site should work fairly well on most mobile devices too, but please give us feedback if you run into any technical issues! :D

Also, if you guys missed out on the combo shoot advanced pack I did with Sinned-angel-stock you might be interested to know that all those images are included on her new USB drive which you can preorder now. Get all the details here:
Sinned-angel-stock collection USB!!!! by Sinned-angel-stock

Happy drawing! :la:
Just a quick reminder that today is the last day to get the Dual Blade Pack from! Tomorrow I will be posting a new, exciting pack and those dual blade, awesome resources will go into hibernation for a while. Don't miss them!!  As a reminder: purchasing advance download stock gives you access to piles of resources before they are publicly available in the deviantART gallery. It also helps support me and the work I'm doing! Thanks for your support!!

I'm continuing to try to keep up with messages (with a little help) and adding all your lovely art to my favorites. I have very limited time at the computer so I am resorting mostly to fav and runs. As always, know that a fav and run from me means, "Thanks for showing me the art, glad the stock was helpful, and keep up the good work!" :la:

Baby is 11 days old today and we are doing well. She has a follow up appointment with her pedi tomorrow and we are hoping we are back to birth weight. (Did you know? Babies lose up to 10% of their birth weight shortly after being born, but gain it back with healthy eating over the next 7-10 days!).

Not sure when I will resume posting stock; at this point we take it day to day. Being a new mom is everything everyone said it would be!!  Keep drawing everyone! :D

P.S. :iconsinned-angel-stock: is having a contest!! And there are subscription prizes, too! Check it out!
Sinned-angel-stock USB!Introducing the Sinned-angel-stock full stock collection USB!
The price is $20.
Pay here, and make sure to include your shipping information:
ALL my stock will be included! The collab :iconsenshistock: that haven't been released yet, sets that were taken down, and sets that were never released! The images are organized in subfolders and further organized by name, and most have the same name as appears in my gallery, for easy linkage and credit. The only stock I will not be including is the ones photographed by :iconmjranum-stock: :)
If you're sad you missed out on getting a sketch from sinned-angel and would like to commission me for artwork, check out my art here: :icongoddessredd: -- I do $10 sketch commissions!
So the very awesome
7/31/13 Update! Amalia Ruth, born 7/30/14 at 10:06pm! 8lb 14oz, mom and baby are doing well! Photo coming soon! :D


Just a brief update to let you know that baby has not yet arrived! She is due July 19th so she could show up anytime between now and a few weeks after that. I'm keeping busy with my waiting by catching up on lots of personal projects that I've been putting off for a few years. :D  I am a little behind on message now, but probably I will post at least a few stocks before she comes (unless she comes tomorrow? It's just crazy, you never know!)

I've started an newsletter list that people can subscribe to if they want to get email notifications for SenshiStock related things. I will use it on occasion for updates about things like new stock packs being available, contests, new merch, or other special events.  It's an opt in process through MailChimp, so you can always stop the emails at any time!

Sign up for the SenshiStock newsletter here!

In addition to that, you can also like me on Facebook or follow me on twitter and tumblr.

I am still hoping to shoot a few pictures with the giant 9 month belly, but I'm not going to have the energy to set up a full shoot. Most likely I will just do a few snapshots and turnarounds. I'd like to get at least something for comparison to the 6 month photos. That belly looks so tiny and cute to me now haha :')

Hope everyone is having a great July!! ^___^
This weekend I will be 36 weeks pregnant! :happybounce:

For those of you not pregnancy literate, this means that sometime between this weekend and next, my baby will be pretty much fully developed. Though we want her to stay in there for a few more weeks and cook up really well, she does have the potential to arrive just about anytime now. :wow:

In the first few weeks, I expect to be pretty scarce on DA and online in general. For those of you interested in updates on baby's arrival, I recommend checking my personal twitter account which I will likely update soon after she gets here (assuming all goes well and I am able to do so). Probably don't want to follow that account unless you're REALLY interested in Sailor Moon, just sayin' ;P  But I do have a stock account on twitter, too which is less personal stuff and more just stock updates.

While I am away, I hope to have a few friends checking the account for me to keep up with stock usage messages. I thought about scheduling some stock to post automatically, but I've decided to just take a little break from that until I'm able to be back at the computer more regularly to manage everything. I will still try to log in occasionally to reply to messages with which my friends can't help and to answer questions. I'm so excited to be a mom!! :D

If you live in New England, I will be at PortConMaine this weekend (because I'm crazy and who books a con while they are 9 months pregnant?! I do lololol)  Here's a map of my location in the art alley, though it's very small so if you go you will likely see everyone. (I am the green star and pink stars are some artist friends!)  You can see some of the artwork I will be selling on my art account, sakkysa.

2014 PortConMaine Art Alley Map! by sakkysa

Thanks again for sharing your lovely artwork with me!! And thanks for your patience with my transition into motherhood. I am sure this time period will result in my personally missing out on seeing your awesome art. ; ~ ; But I will try to find time to scroll through the new favs and take a peek though!!! Maybe at 4AM when no one is sleeping anyway. ;D
UPDATE: DMCA notice was served and tumblr removed the post. We'll see how it goes from here.


Big thanks to the kind people who continue to message me about this tumblr blog which re-posts stock images without proper source credit.

I am very aware of this blogger and this is not the first time I've seen them post my stock without a link. They continuously post "references," some of which are legitimate resources and some that are not, without credit. Their reasoning for not giving credit is that they are "too busy" and since they are not claiming the stock as their own and not making a profit that it's okay, and they are doing nothing wrong.  See their FAQ for more of this fantastic reasoning.

They claim they will take down anything that they are asked to take down, but by then of course it's been reblogged, unsourced, 20,000 times - so what's the point?

Also, there's no point in filing a DMCA against them because with tumblr's policies, all they have to do is file a counter DMCA and tumblr will reinstate it unless the original person takes legal action.  I don't have money to hire a lawyer for some self-serving stooge on tumblr.

They allow "allow" you to help find the sources for the images FOR them, but only if you can source the whole post. They don't want messages about individual images in the post. Talk about not having time...

There's no talking to this person to convince them that what they are doing is the opposite of helpful. That being said, if you see my stock from this person's posts floating around, please feel free to reblog with a link to my account. Thousands of artists see these posts and only a handful of them will know about the MUCH larger, much better quality references they can get in the dA gallery. In addition to these artists missing out on actually USEFUL resources, they are also seeing the stock out of context and without the information about its usage.  

I like to think that my stock usage policy is very lenient. It was designed this way to allow the widest possible use by artists with the smallest amount of headache for all, including myself. But it's people like this, who are too self entitled to be bothered to do what's right, that lead to stock providers becoming frustrated and abandoning their efforts.

Do the right thing and credit your sources when credit is required. Don't be a dick.

SenshiStock is also on tumblr.

RE: Watermarks with the URL - this might be something I can do moving forward, however there are already about 2,000 images in the gallery that are unmarked. It also doesn't change that people should be posting a live hyperlink to the stock when it's reposted.
Mature Content Filter is On
(Contains: violence/gore)
I went through some of the uses of my stock and pulled out some works that spoke to me of the 'dark' in one way or another. Please take some time to visit these lovely artists and their powerful work!

UPDATE April 30: This has apparently been fixed! PRAISE ALL THE THINGS. I'm so glad I didn't spend the time changing everything yet. :'D


Most if not all of my almost 2,000 deviations now link to the journal page in general instead of the specific journal with the license agreement. This is going to take a long time to fix, but in the meantime I have updated the front page with the correct links.

Here they are again:



Please let me know if you have any questions - it's going to be a long process to edit all the deviations with the correct links.

Stock providers: better check your stuff, too.
A pose can be a great place to start, but there's so many ways it can go from there! Check out the work by all these different artists who started with the same pose in the SenshiStock gallery!

April 15, 2014 UPDATE: USB 2.0 Preorders ARE OPEN:

SenshiStock USB 2.0 Is Now Available! by SenshiStock

As a reminder, this will be a PREORDER. The drives will ship in May. :D Stay tuned on Thursday for the preorder link!



The SenshiStock USB drives have all the stock from Shoots 1-26 in them. It's about 3000 files, 4GB of stock and it's a quick way to have a huge selection of reference images on the go.

Since the release of the USB, people have asked about how to get the stock that was shot after Shoot 26. Much of the post-Shoot 26 stock is being sold through advance download packs on  They rotate every 6 weeks and once a pack comes down, it's gone until it starts getting posted to the DA gallery.

However, there's still a LOT of stock that isn't going into those packs for various reasons. That other stock is stuck in limbo, waiting for its turn in the gallery.

For that reason, SenshiStock USB Drive 2.0 is now something I am considering. Instead of blue, this drive would be red to easily tell it apart. It would have everything from Shoots 27-35 that isn't going to be sold as a pack on  It would also include the hand and foot packs.  I can talk to Jade about including the stuff I did with him, too (though all of that is already posted to the gallery).  It could also include the entire pregnancy shoot that I will be doing later this month.

I just took a peek and it's currently about 1,700 new images at 4.21 GB.  Plus the stock with Jade and the pregnancy shoot and it should be over 2,200 images. This drive, like the last one, would be $20 + $5 shipping. It's a few less images for the price, but the quantity of unreleased images is much higher (only about 120 images have been posted from these newer shoots so far). Also, many of the stock images are of much higher quality since Shoot 26 was my first shoot with the DSLR and I have worked with some talented photographers since then.

What do you guys think about a second USB drive? Is it something you'd be interested in pre-ordering to help with the upfront costs? If you already have the first USB, is it working out well for you? Any other feedback?

Thanks all and as always, happy drawing! ^___^

My husband's fun paddle moving, saw blade spinning, zombie killing game Pombie Zong is FINALLY available for iPhone and iPad! ^___^  I am credited as Executive Producer on the game, so you should definitely check it out for some adorable, blood splattering fun. :meow:

It's also still available on Android as a full game and a demo.

Here's a map of where I will be at Anime Boston later this month! Please come and visit if you will be at the con! :la: I've been working very hard in the last few weeks to make lots of cute things for the table! I will also have my USB drives and SenshiStock To Go books on hand if you want to pick one up in person.

I'm a bit behind on messages right now due to the aforementioned con prep. I will try to clear out those messages by the end of the week so I can see all the new art you have all posted! :D  Still planning the first pregnancy shoot sometime in April after AB. I'm looking quite round these days! :giggle:
  • Mood: Excited
If love were a train, I'd be run over by it. :heart:

Thank you very much for the many (many!) happy birthday messages today!! :happybounce:

I'm 30! Hurray! It's like suddenly being a real adult (but not really because haha who does that?!).

Still pregnant, too! Woo. I always said I wanted a baby before I was 30, but I didn't specify that it ought to be outside of me so I guess life has still met my requirements. :D 

Lots and lots of people have asked about pregnancy stock and I do plan to do a shoot when I have a bit more to show for it, probably around 6 months or so, after Anime Boston. Not even really sure what sort of themes I should do, past the typical sort of 'pregnant lady' poses. What kind of stuff would you guys be looking for with a shoot like that?  If I can snag AJ or Dave to come be a "dad" in those photos, I will. (Real husband is like a ninja in the shadows, hehe).

As usual, I'm really behind on use messages, but I will catch up eventually! Can't wait to see all the cool art. :headbang:

Announcing Project F1! by sakkysa

We are all very excited. :D
Over on my art account every year I do a giveaway during the holidays where you can win a custom plush from me. I just started this year's giveaway, so please check it out, spread the word and enter! ^______^

Click HERE or on the image below to get all the details. :w00t!:

UPDATE: Shoot is over! Thanks all, images will be coming by the end of the week :D


Hey all!! GREAT NEWS.

I just confirmed have a male model coming TODAY. FOR REALS. I'm so excited. We are going to take a lot of photos, I won't let this opportunity slip by!! ^___^

In the meantime, I am going to use this shoot as a test for my very first Collective Client Commission Shoot.  Commissioned stock is where artists pay me for specific poses they need in a more urgent timeline than my suggestions list.  

The commissioned stock rate is $5 USD per photo. I will also accept DA Points at 400 :points: per photo. 

Some more notes:
Paid stock has the same rules as any images from SenshiStock: you are allowed to share, copy, distribute, transmit, remix, and adapt the stock as you need it.  You are allowed commercial use of the stock.  You are required to credit when the stock is used in photo manipulations and when it is shared in its raw format in other locations on or offline. As always, public credit is appreciated but not required when the stock is used solely as pose reference.

I retain the rights to the images produced in paid stock.   I also reserve the right to used paid stock in future SenshiStock book and e-book publications as well as to repackage and resell the paid sock from my DeviantART account and as a exclusive package unless we agree upon not doing so before the shoot takes place. I may ask for an additional fee for stock that you do not want resold.

Sorry for the short notice - this is just a test! BEEP.

Check out the announcement about the new mention system dA has implemented:

Deviant and Art MentionsMentions: Connecting People
Mentions are a new, highly requested feature that makes engaging friends and artists in conversation more dynamic than ever before.
What is a Mention?
A Mention is when a deviant’s username, icon, or artwork is included in a comment or Journal. Mentions create links to the deviants or artwork you include, allowing you to highlight artists and engage deviants with ease.
Links to pages on deviantART can quickly be distinguished by their bold, dark-blue color, while external links are darker and have an arrow indicating you are leaving deviantART.
Deviants you mention are notified in the new Mentions section of the Message Center, making engaging and involving others in conversation a simple, hassle-free experience.
How to Mention
There are four ways to mention a deviant.
Displays as

If it works the way it should, simply mentioning my account with a :dev: or :icon: tag in your description, or including the thumb of the stock image you used should notify me of the use of the stock. Assuming it all works properly, you can consider this type of notification sufficient for the requirement in my license agreement to show me your work.  For more help with linking things on dA, please see: FAQ #81: How can I create links to other deviants, deviations, or websites?

If you mention me or thumbnail the stock in the artist comments, you do not have to send me an additional message to tell me about the stock use. Doing so will result in redundant messages and make it more difficult for me to sort through and keep up. ^__^  However, if you choose to not link to me in the artist comments, please be sure you are sending me a message to show me the work.

Hopefully this system works well and this will make it easier for me to find art using the stock and easier for artists to be in compliance with notification requirements. :D

EDIT: Apparently, if you write your artist comments and forget to mention the stock, editing it to add it will not notify me. In that case, please be sure you still message me.  :D

EDIT 2: Obviously, if you post the art off dA you will still have to message me to show me. ^___^; Thought they also implemented this handy off site link icon that shows up next to links to other sites and that will help me a lot, too!

EDIT 3: It seems to be working in most cases, but there's still some times when people have credited me and I'm not getting the mention. ;(  If you don't get a favorite from me within about a week or so, please feel free to message me if you want to be sure I've seen your art!  I don't want to miss a thing!!

EDIT 4: If you post a link to the photo as a URL, it will not tag me. It has to be a thumb (which only subscribers can do, right?) or my DA name as an icon or dev link.

Hi all! I am back from Japan, what an amazing trip! ^___^ If you guys happen to like Sailor Moon, I recommend you check out the new musical when it becomes available; it was great! I saw it three times. :3

I'd like to thank some awesome friends for helping to manage the account for me while I was on vacation. :iconphimouse: :iconpristinepanda: and :iconlittlestkoi: helped me to keep up with messages while I was away. :heart:  Thank you all so much!! :hug:

The SenshiStock To Go books are going to be available VERY SOON (super soon). If you have sent me a NOTE telling me you are interested then you will be notified first.  There are only about 60 books available for purchase right now and there are lots of people interested so please be sure you note me (NOTE MEEEEEEEE) if you want to be informed early. I suspect that they will not be available for very long. ;D

I am currently preparing for Another Anime Con in Manchester, NH Oct 18-20. Please come visit my table if you are going to be there! I am having a raffle to win a custom plush of any character you want! ^____^

Here's some of the cool artwork that was made using SenshiStock while I was traveling! Please check out these artist's galleries for more great stuff. :3

Trying something new today, doing a stock shoot live! :D

>> Click here for the stream! <<

It's my LiveStream account for when I make art, but I thought it would be fun to do my stock shoot today live so you guys can see what I'm doing.

Some notes:
:bulletblue: It's over wifi, so the quality might be horrible
:bulletblue: The room is limited to 50 people so if a lot of people go, you might not be able to get in until someone leaves (sorry!)
:bulletblue: There is a chat but I probably won't be checking it much or else I won't get anything done
:bulletblue: I have a list of things I want to do in this shoot so I'm not going to be taking requests or suggestions

This should be fun!! :D I am starting at 3:15PM and should be on for a few hours. I will update this journal with an offline message when I am done.
