Always! I just love to compare it and see "oh, he add this, and did this quite well" and stuff like that. It's a little bit educating too.

I love it when the stock user makes a feature journal of deviations that used their stock. It's always cool to see how others interpret a pose or expression.

Some people on Deviant Art post in their Gallery when some one has used their work as inspiration or reference. I see it in these situations but I don't actively seek it out.

Anytime I see an interesting pose I go and see what other have done. It's really neat to see

i missed by answer xD but anyways, i usually use the site and i never actually used your stuff for a full image, i really enjoy to do sessions with your poses though so i never really look at what people do with your photos.

I will usually look at the links for a stock photo I'm going to use or have already used. I love seeing the other images that were inspired by the same picture I'm using!

I usually come looking for references to use, and then procrastinate by looking at what other people did! I am a dummy!

It really depends on whether I'm looking for stock to use myself, or if I'm just browsing. On the one hand, it is interesting to see how people use references, especially if you can compare it to something they made that they didn't use a photo reference for. On the other hand, if I've got an idea, I don't want to lose it to the distraction of what other people used this thing for; it's like shopping online where they tell you what other people bought at the same time that they bought a Turnip Twaddler 5000. "Ooo, I didn't even know they made Potato Parboilers! What will they think of next? ... What do you mean I've spent four hours looking at useless kitchen gadgets? What did I come here to buy in the first place? Was I supposed to make dinner at some point tonight? Why are my housemates looking at me like vultures? Oh dear, they seem to be eating my legs and this metaphor got very much out of hand."

Definitly, everytime. I want to see how's the general look of things and how's the stock is being used by other people and if this "usage pattern" is being well accepted so I can follow without mistakes ;p

Sometimes, I'll look to see what other ideas the stock image has been used for. Sometimes seeing what's been done will inspire me to want to do something different.

It's my guilty pleasure and I can kill a good hour or two just going through all of those links and art and basking in other people's creativity. It always has a positive effect on me because I end up going "Aaaaah! I'm so pumped now! Must do art!"

If I'm not in a hurry, I do it any time I've decided on one stock image out of the 7 or so I look at. Simply because that means fewer tabs than if I did it for all of them ><

I do enjoy looking at what others have done with the stock or pose, but only after I have finished using the stock for what I need.
