-You can use the image in any way you want, a portion of it or the whole thing, it doesn't matter to me.
-Credit me
-As long as you credit me, you can make prints of your artwork that uses my stock, or post to other sites (let me know via comment or note though please so I know what site)
-Don't use for hateful purposes
-You don't have to tell me before you use it, but link me when you are done (I will fave your deviation!)
-Faves are obviously not required, but super appreciated
-If you use as a reference only for things like pose or lighting (in other words, you aren't trying to make your artwork look like my photo) then you do not have to credit me, but I still want to see your artwork when you're done! If you are using it as a reference and are trying to make it look like my photo, then I still expect credit

I used some of these great stock photos to practise drawing hands in my sketchbook. Thank you very much! ^^ I also used "Reaching" and "Holding Mug", but as I don't want to bother you by posting the link to my drawings three times, I'll only do so here, if that's okay: fav.me/d7c0qs3

This stock is really helpful, as I always struggle to get hands on shoulders right (and usually I end up drawing something different in the end ^^;). So I put this into my favourites and I'm almost sure that I'll use more of it some day ^^

If you're wondering for future reference at all, I don't mind either way if you want to link on all three photos or just on one. As long as I end up seeing your work you're good to go ;)

Great drawings!

Just wondering about the ETA of that hand-holding pack; it'd be really helpful with a project I've got brewing.

Melyssah6-Stock Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2012  Student General Artist
Well, if everything goes according to plan and my friend and I get pictures taken tomorrow, they can be up within a day of that if you need it ASAP. If things don't work out, what's your deadline look like? Are there any particular hand-holding poses you want?

:iconcreepingbone:
CreepingBoNE Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
That'd be real awesome if you could manage that; and if not, there's a rather specific pose that'd be a great help to me, if you could manage two hands palm-to-palm with fingers intertwined that'd be great.

Thanks a ton~

Lol, where were you a couple of years ago? This could've helped a lot, but I've finally managed to do the impossible and get used to drawing hands. It's actually not that hard, it's just that only a few closely related methods will do the trick.

Yeah, drawing hands are still somewhat challenging for me, but I totally enjoy it :)

A couple years ago I was still afraid DA was infested with viruses....hah. That was before I knew what adblock was ;)

I actually haven't had that problem more than once. When it did happen, though, it was about five in the morning and I was checking messages after a full night of work. Terrible experience D: took me another two hours and help from my dad to iron things out again.

I'm not so sure the ads /actually/ infected my computer (thought at the time I thought they did) but I kept getting the fake "Warning -- your computer is infected! Click here in microsoft's blah blah to delete infected files etc etc" like every single time I went on that I eventually just quit and didn't come back til like 4 years later. But it's good to hear it's not a common occurrence!

Even though I don't find hands that difficult anymore, hands on shoulders/gripping arms are still challenging for me, so thank you very much for putting in the time and effort to produce these references! ;D
