Lots of things going on! :la:

The $2.50+ Patrons have access tonight to the Tree Pair Pack which is coming to SenshiStock.com this week. The 25 image pack has two models in a tree and was professionally photographed by Blue Amrich of Beyond the Fence. (Incidentally, if you are local to southern New England, she might still have some spots open for her coveted holiday pet photoshoot)  :love: 

These Patrons get access to the themed packs in advance and at a ~40% annual discount so if they are useful to you, certainly consider my Patreon as an option to get them for less. :heart:

The School Girl Sitting Pack will expire when the Tree Pair Pack is posted so now's you last chance to grab that 30 poses for $2 pack.

The other packs up right now are the Poly Pack, Window Pack, and the Princess AP Pack.
Here's the free previews for all those:

Thank you all SO much for your support of the Premium Romance Pack from the Kickstarter shoot with Sinned-angel-stock! The purchases of that pack have been super crazy helpful with some of the expenses she's had creep up unexpectedly. :heart:  And ever little bit certainly helps! You can read more about what's going on and leave her some love in her recent journal

Later this week I'll be posting another FREE Patreon Set! You can look forward to 6 new images with the theme 'Robot.' :eager:

I went to Rhode Island Comic Con and Anime NYC this month so I'm feeling a little con'd out, but I have a craft show in two weeks and then Boston South Coast Comic Con/Boston Anime Fest the weekend after (Dec 9-10). I will have some books and USB drives with me there, as well as my art.

Then starting in December I'm going to be in packing hell as we're selling our house and moving a few towns over in the second week of January. IDK how many of you know this, but I have a massive Sailor Moon collection that needs to be carefully packed and it's going to be so much work. :faint:

New house has a few more rooms so I will have my own office again (yay) and ***might*** even have a dedicated photography space! :wow: We haven't figured out the exact layout of where all our things will go, but I'm very excited about getting a vinyl backdrop and installing it somewhere fairly permanent. Needless to say, December and Jan might be sort of nutty for me and spotty internet-wise so I'll probably try to schedule the Dec/Jan submissions ALL before December starts so you guys don't have a lapse in new stuff here on DA.

My Patrons can still expect their stuff with regularity. I'm putting a scheduled plan in place to make sure everyone's covered for their perks through my move. It's always possible there will be unexpected delays but I will keep everyone posted. :salute:

At Anime NYC this past weekend I met most of the new English dub Sailor Moon main voice cast and got some free swag at the #moonpanel. It was fun to go to a con just to have fun instead of for working. But I lost my wig and lunchbox on the train home so I am a little sad. :'( I hope it's turned into lost and found after the weekend.

Phew, okay, I think that's everything! The end of the year is always kinda wild but I will do my best to keep up with messages and stuff. Bear with me if things get a little crazy with the reloc in Jan! :hug:

Here's some recent favs of stuff that used my poses. Happy drawing!

Just wanted to let you all know that it's started, in case you are interested. :heart: You can enter from now until Christmas morning (December 25th). The more people who enter the more prizes unlock.

Details: Sakky's 8th Annual Free Plush Giveaway! by sakkysa

Thanks! :thanks:
BEEN LOVING THE INKTOBER STUFF! Keep it up, everyone! I am (of course, typically) WAY behind on messages but I look forward to catching up and seeing all the really amazing work everyone's been making! :eager:

Tomorrow I am going to Another Anime Con in Manchester, NH. Will be there all weekend selling my art (:iconsakkysa:) and I will have some USB drives, books, and SenshiStock t-shirts. Come by and say hi! If you are in the area, there's a $10 pass that gets you just access to the dealers/artists hall for the weekend.

I just published a celebration post on the SenshiStock Patreon because today I passed a funding goal! WOO! This means after AAC, I'm going to be buying a brand new camera. WOW. I can't wait. And Patrons at $5+/mo can make direct pose requests.

There is a Sinned Angel Premium Romance Pack up on SenshiStock.com right now which is set of 46 images from our Kickstarter collab, professionally photographed with super cuddly romantic themes. Definitely check that out! :heart: 

The end of my year is all cons and craft shows and holidays and junk so I guess it's going to be crazy busy. And we might sell our house? Lots going on.

The 21st is my 10 year anniversary of posting pose references in DA. It's kinda fun to me when people are like, "I've been using your poses since I was a kid!" and I'm like damn, yeah, I've been doing this a long time, huh? It's been an amazing journey for sure. Can't wait to see what the next 10 years brings!! If I wait long enough, I will finally have that middle aged woman model I can't seem to book. ;P
Hey artists! :la:

Inktober is right around the corner, so I've decided to take the list from this year's challenge and submit stock that fits each of the day's official themes (more or less, lol). You can read more about the challenge and see the official 2017 Inktober Prompt List on the Inktober site. New poses will submit at 8AM Eastern time every day for the month of October. 

Patrons of all levels will get a sta.sh link tonight to all the poses. :heart:

This is not a challenge run by me, but it's a month long theme for improving your inking skills. Please show me the art you make throughout the month! Looking forward to seeing your creativity!

:love:
Hey all! Still trying to send out all the notes for the Draw Everything June II Prizes. DA doesn't like my note sending volume. ;D I will do my best to have those all out this weekend. :blowkiss:

August starts Tuesday and last year I did a theme with Action August! This year, I'm participating in #AugustAdiPOSE, a month long drawing challenge/theme to draw fat people and characters. The idea was spawned on twitter where it was aptly named. Every post I submit in Aug will feature a heavy model. If you're not used to drawing big body types, I hope you will join up with the theme and give it a go! 

Unlike DEJ, this isn't really a challenge I'm running - just a month theme like #Mermay or #DrawDinovember. Hope if you decide to do it you will have some fun with it! Looking forward to seeing whatever art you might make this month. :D
Here's a list of everyone who's qualified for the Draw Everything June II - 2017 Edition Challenge!
154 deviants completed the challenge and drew all 22 poses. Please bear with me for a little while and I will be sorting out prizes for as many of you as I can!

UPDATE July 6th The entries are rolling in and I'm doing my best to keep up with the notes. It might take me a few days to read it, but you should get a reply from me which will indicate you've qualified. I will make another journal after the 15th with a list of everyone who qualified. :heart:

:star: IMPORTANT :star: even if I've fav'd all your poses, even if I've fav'd your folder or compilation image, you will not qualify unless you send the note as outlined below. This is the only reasonable way for me to keep track of completed entries. Please make sure you do it. :D

June is coming again and it's time for another Draw Everything June drawing challenge! :eager:  

The challenge is to draw every new SenshiStock pose that I submit during the month of June 2017. This year, the challenge has increased! :evillaugh: New poses are scheduled to submit EVERY WEEKDAY (Monday through Friday) and there might be a few surprises, too.

HOW TO ENTER:
 little star Draw every pose submitted to the SenshiStock DA gallery between June 1, 2017 and June 30, 2017 (approx 22 poses, but there might be a surprise or two)
 little star When you have drawn ALL THE POSES please SEND ME A NOTE by July 15th, 2017 with the subject "Draw Everything June" and give me the links to ALL your drawings at once.
 little star It would be super helpful if you put them in a gallery folder and just sent a link to the folder, but individually links are okay if you can't do this.
 little star It's also ok to have all the drawings in one large deviation. 
 little star You don't have to do completed work with every one of them, rough and gestural sketches are okay! But it *does* have to be the full pose to qualify. 
IMPORTANT: The majority of the pose should be visible for it to count for the challenge. If you draw the head and shoulders and cover the rest of the body with a huge dress, it's not going to count as drawing the pose. You can use anthro characters, you can change the genders of the characters. 

Poses will be included IN THIS GALLERY FOLDER and at the bottom of this journal as they appear in the gallery.

If you want to see the work people are doing as they complete the challenge you can check this favs folder.

Emergency Tard Entries will not be accepted by any other submission manner other than together in a note as outlined above. I will not have time to correct or contact invalid submissions and they will be disqualified. 

:happehwinner: All participants who complete the challenge will be eligible to randomly win something fun like SenshiStock swag, USB drives, points, or unreleased stock. I will try to give everyone something for entering, depending on how may people complete the challenge. Null-Entity and skydancer-stock have also generously donated some exclusive packs!

I have contacted a few other deviants to increase the prize pool. If you'd like to donate points, badges, or subscriptions, please note me!

HAPPY DRAWING! :la:

PS. If you're supporting me on Patreon, check your messages! There's a link for special advance access to all of the scheduled poses for this challenge! ;P

If you want to tag them on social media for easy finding, let's use #DEJ2 

As with usual stock usages, I can't comment on every image but I will be looking at them all and I love seeing the work! :happybounce:

Did you know that 2017 marks 10 YEARS of SenshiStock?!  PearlLA 

I'm working on planning some stuff for later in the year to celebrate. I think I will do Draw Everything June again, plus I'm going to be doing a Pose Reference Collaboration Kickstarter later this summer with Sinned-angel-stock so we can fly me out to her for a super amazing collab shoot (which will probably include underwater stock and things with mermaid tails, fyi ;P).

Other than a drawing challenge and some potentially incredible new collab stock, I've been trying to drum up some other celebration ideas. I was thinking about trying to do a live streaming model session like a life drawing class where I could hold poses for various times for people to sketch live. Would you be interested in that? I know the timing could never be ideal for everyone. It would be cool to have some kind of actual get together to model/draw as a group, but the logistics of that seem a bit overwhelming to me.

Not much going on in SenshiStock land right now. I'm catching up from the art I owe from Anime Boston and then I will start prep for my early summer cons. You can check my con schedule on AnimePlushie.com.

The highlights from the shoot with King Chaos are going out to $5+ Patrons on my Patreon later this month, and all Patrons can look forward to an archive pull in the next few days. The next SenshiStock.com pack will go up in May. The Man Pair Pack has been getting a lot of love! So happy people are digging it - I hope to have a lot more male model stuff in the future. Big thanks to the Patrons who are generously helping so I can hire models and bring more diversity to the gallery!
Hamtaro Mouse Emoji-03 (Squee) [V1] 

Can't believe there's only a week left in April! :screaming: Let me know if there's anything special you hope to see in the May submissions!
  • Listening to: Tron Soundtrack
  • Drinking: Grape Juice
I am in crazy prep mode for Anime Boston in Boston MA from March 31-April 2! :la:

You can find me in the Dealer's Hall at booth #722. I will have SenshiStock USB drives, a few SenshiStock To Go Books, and a some t-shirts.
Of course, I will also have lots and lots of my cute art, as well as copies of my Magical Girl Coloring Book! :D


SenshiStock at Anime Boston 2017 by SenshiStock

My Patreon was updated today with the newest SenshiStock.com themed pack, The Man Pair Pack! It will be available for direct purchase on the site early in April. It includes more than 70 photos of two male models interacting in various ways including carrying, injured, sitting, jumping, walking, cuddling, and playing. The Action Staff Pack is expiring.

My whole family was sick for four weeks and we're all finally coming out of it. I also had a back injury during that time from which I'm slowly recovering. Even though I'm in crazy con prep mode, I still plan to do a small shoot this week before AB so I can get something new up for Patrons. :D There might be a delay in the scheduling of April submissions while I decompress from the con.

I'm way super behind on usage messages but I also will catch up on those after AB. :giggle: Looking forward to seeing all the great art waiting for me!!

I've made a public post about some Patreon overhaul!
Please check it out and let me know if you have any questions or comments. :heart:

I hope you've all been having fun with Deluge December! 5 poses left! :happybounce:
Comingsoon by SenshiStock

For the month of December I will be submitting a new image every day for the whole month. It's Deluge December!
:party:


The December stock shoot is probably going to be after Christmas since my social calendar this month is a taaaad full, plus I'm busting my doodling butt to get all the art done for my Magical Girl Coloring Book. :eager: It's going to be just me, most likely. If you're interested in getting new stock as it's created every month, you can do so through my Patreon (there's other awesome perks on there too like themed pack subscriptions).

If anyone wants to pick up one or both of the SenshiStock USB drives for the holidays, you will have to order before December 16th to ensure the drives arrive before Dec 25th. I am not sure what the shipping time is from the 3rd party printers for the SenshiStock To Go books, but if you go through the check out process there's probably various shipping options available. :D

Hope you all have a lovely end of 2016. :heart:
Nove Stockteaser by SenshiStock

November stock is scheduled! It's NO SAKKY NOVEMBER! ;P

All of the submissions in November will be of models that are not me (with one exception, something special... coming later...). New poses will come up on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. If you are a supporter on Patreon, check your messages for a link to the Sta.sh folder if you'd like to pick up these poses a little early.

There will also be a new SenshiStock.com pack going live later this month! The Rock Climbing Pack will be expiring, so pick that one up now if you don't want to miss it.

I've slowly been adding new images to the rotation on the SenshiStock Sketch app. There's ~500 images in queue to be tagged so they will just start appearing as I find time to do that. I hope to add another 500 or so sometime before the end of the year, and eventually I want the whole gallery in there! The site is designed to adjust and work on mobile, too!  



My Magical Girl Coloring Book project on Kickstarter just passed 100 backers! ~♥ There's only a week left to support the project and get access to exclusive WIPs. :D

I am mostly caught up on all the messages from Inktober. You guys really buried me. :D I hope those of you gearing up for NaNoWriMo are excited about the new challenge!
I am going to be at Another Anime Con this weekend in Manchester, NH. I have a dealer's space for my art stuffs from sakkysa, but I will also have USB drives and two SenshiStock To Go books. Please come say hi if you'll be there!

Currently, I'm running a KickStarter to produce a Magical Girl Coloring Book. The project funded in less than 4 hours (omg yay!) but I have some excellent stretch goals I'd like to reach which include some really cool guest artists and some other, unannounced things if we go further. You can also watch the pitch video on YouTube:



Regarding stock, I have tentative plans for an October shoot with three models. I am hoping after the convention I can solidify these plans and possibly have time to set up a few more commissions if anyone needs specific stuff. Patrons can look forward to something really special if it all pans out because one of the models can hoop! ;D

In the meantime, happy drawing. :boogie:
This session is now closed. Thanks everyone!

Price
Commissioned stock is $5 USD per pose. I will also accept DA Points at 400 :points: per pose. I usually take a few versions of the pose so you can have slightly difference versions from which to work.

Process
Send me a note with the pose(s) you need and I will let you know if I think we can do them. If we agree on a pose, you can send payment to me via Points, PayPal or Square Invoice to book your pose(s). After the shoot, I will send you the poses directly.

Client Terms of Use for Paid Stock
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 SenshiStock.deviantart.com 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.

SenshiStock's Use for Paid Stock
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 SenshiStock.com 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 later resold. Commissioned stock will not be released for free.

Cancellation Policy
Payments are non-refundable unless I am unable to hold the shoot, or if I am unable to complete a certain pose due to other unforeseeable circumstances (illness, injury, technical difficulty, etc.).  If I am unable to complete the shoot on the agreed upon date I will contact the client(s) to try and reschedule.  If a rescheduled date cannot be agreed upon with both parties then a refund will be issued.

Questions?
Let me know in the comments!

Challenge: Draw Everything June!JULY 9, 2016 UPDATE over 120 entries! I will catch up on the 70+ notes that I haven't read over the weekend. Please do not send additional messages at this time.

Get your doodle muscles ready, because here's a June drawing challenge! :eager:
Your task is to draw every new SenshiStock submission during the month of June 2016. New poses are scheduled to submit every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and there might be a few surprizes, too. You don't have to do completed work with every one of them, sketches are okay! IMPORTANT UPDATE: The majority of the pose should be visible for it to count for the challenge. If you draw the head and shoulders and cover the rest of the body with a huge dress, it's not going to count as drawing the pose. ;P
At the end of the month, if you've drawn every pose,


I have finished going through all the notes! Thanks so much for your enthusiasm with the contest. Lots of people expressed how much fun they had and how it really helped them challenge themselves. That's great to hear! The following is a list of people who've qualified for the prize aspect of the challenge. If you don't see your icon here and you think I might have missed your note, please reply to this journal.

I will need a few more days to sort out the prizes. Thanks for your patience!

I will definitely do a challenge like this again! :happybounce:

Deviantart seems keen to not allow me to be very happy or productive on their site lately.

This is the third time in a month I've been locked out of my account. I don't know how many of you have ever experienced this, but basically what happens is you go to check messages or something and you're suddenly logged out. When you try to log back in, you're told you have the incorrect password.

You don't, actually. And you can't reset it even if you tried. It's just that DA has decided something about your account is bad, something on their secret 'do not do' list, and since it's apparently suspicious, they lock you out for some unknown amount of time. Actually, resetting your password will lock you out longer. So will attempting to log in before the lock out is over. It's all automatic and if you ask them about it they say, well it's something you did that was bad so bad you and too bad (pretty much).

I used to think this had something to do with logging in and out of more than one account on multiple devices because I was told it was due to 'invalid session cookies' so I have been really careful about that lately, being sure to log out on one device before logging in on another. DA actually told me this is not what's causing the previous lock outs.

This time, I really have no idea. There's been a huge increase in use of the stock due to the Draw Everything June Challenge (You guys are really rocking it! I can't believe how many of you are participating!! :heart:). Maybe because I've been favoriting hundreds of images, DA decided I'm a baddy and must go?

I really don't know, but it's really difficult to run this kind of huge account (that I pay for, by the way...) if I can't have reasonable and regular access to it.

How am I posting this journal, you may ask? Well, that's the dumbest thing about these lock outs - it only locks out the IP you were using (in this case, my home IP). I can still log in on my cell network or via a proxy. Other than being completely and totally annoying, it's also pretty much pointless.

I'm happy I can still at least get in to the account, but obviously on the cell is not a super useful way to use the site, and Sta.sh and some areas of DA you can't use via a proxy so there's a lot of stuff I can't do (like submit deviations).

Considering the amount of traffic that comes to this site via my gallery, it would be REALLY cool if I could use the site as intended. I'm thinking maybe it's time I set up a completely independent site for my stock and close up shop on DA. Would you guys come along? :D
JULY 9, 2016 UPDATE over 120 entries! I will catch up on the 70+ notes that I haven't read over the weekend. Please do not send additional messages at this time. I will make a new journal listing all the eligible participants as soon as I've gone through everything; your patience is appreciated. :aww:

Get your doodle muscles ready, because here's a June drawing challenge! :eager:

Your task is to draw every new SenshiStock submission during the month of June 2016. New poses are scheduled to submit every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and there might be a few surprizes, too. You don't have to do completed work with every one of them, sketches are okay! IMPORTANT UPDATE: The majority of the pose should be visible for it to count for the challenge. If you draw the head and shoulders and cover the rest of the body with a huge dress, it's not going to count as drawing the pose. ;P

At the end of the month, if you've drawn every pose, send me a note by July 8th, 2016 with the subject "Draw Everything June" and give me the links to your drawings. It would be super helpful if you put them in a gallery folder and just sent a link to the folder, but individually links are okay if you can't do this. UPDATE: it's also ok to have all the drawings in one large deviation.

Entries will not be accepted by any other submission manner other than together in a note as outlined above. I will not likely have time to correct or contact invalid submissions so they will be disqualified.

All participants who complete the challenge will be eligible to randomly win something fun like SenshiStock swag, USB drives, points, or unreleased stock. I will try to give everyone something for entering, depending on how may people complete the challenge.

HAPPY DRAWING! :la:

PS. If you're supporting me on Patreon, check your messages! There's a link for special advance access to all of the scheduled poses for this challenge! ;P

I'm amazed at the broad interest in this challenge and I'm so glad people are enjoying it! You can see the images people have shown me already in this folder of my favorites. As with usual stock usages, I can't comment on every image but I am looking at them all and I love seeing the work so keep it up! :happybounce: 
You know what's awesome? Food. You know who can't really eat food right now? My pal, Sinned-angel-stock. Oh sure, she can eat mushed and mashed things, but not actual, chew it up food. :crying:

WHY, you ask!? She's got no teeth! :shakefish:



Dang it all, life, why take Courtney's teeth!? You bugger. :grump:

But the good news is that she can get ROBOT TEETH. :excited:

Okay, not exactly. But if she raises enough money, she can get denture implants that will let her have her mouth back. :party:

So here's the GoFundMe Campaign to get Courtney some teeth! Please check it out, contribute if you can, and pass it along! Then we can have a Courtney that does :D instead of :(. :heart:
