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:

:icondaposes:
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!

:iconpyjama-cake:
New account, currently non-nude female full body

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

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

:iconyoungmalestock:
Male stock with underwear on. New gallery!

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

:icondaestock:
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.

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

:iconlalunatique:
mostly full body female, stock is in a folder

:iconrobynrose:
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.

:iconfelixdeon:
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!

:iconpiratelotus-stock:
has a series called "Melted Wings" which contains really dynamic pose images!

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

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

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

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

:icontorresadlincdl91:
Has some pose reference folders in this section of her gallery. Be sure to check the subfolders!

Posemaniacs is a fun site with lots of fantastic poses that you can rotate in a virtual space for reference!

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:

Other great stock accounts on DA that aren't exactly focused on pose ref but are way cool anyway:

Thanks for compiling this, and for specifying the nudes/non-nudes, I generally prefer the latter. I've been wanting to improve my anatomical drawing skills, and I'm sure I'll be returning to this list more than a few times in the coming weeks :)

I hate to be a bother, but do you know of anyone that has stock of people sitting at tables? I always find chair poses, but none of leaning on desks or tables :c

First, thank you so much for your amazing stock, for posting links to other stocks and for clarifying whether they contain nude pictures or not since I prefer modesty and it would disturb me if I came across stocks that contain nude picture so I'm very grateful to you :)

hi senshi! this is amazing, thank you very much :)
i've always been a fun of your stocks, i'm not only watching you i even have your page in bookmarks! 
really really great for illustrators like me who is bad at anatomy haha, this just gives me wider imagination of what poses i can use for my illustrations, and certainly helps me to understand more of the right anatomy on a certain poses!

Thank you! :)

I feel so lame asking this, but I can't find anyone using phone poles or anything. @_@ Like holding onto it and or stepping on it or anything. U_U My search has been fruitless. BLEH.

But holy crap I love you and all of these people! <333333
