May the Fourth be With You.
Our first challenge is to shoot and present poses you might find in a Science Fiction film or book. Star Wars, Star Trek, Babylon 5, Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Battlestar Galactic, Alien, and so on. Please place them in the appropriate sub folder.
Each week on Saturday, there will be a new challenge to the stock artists and a folder created for the theme of that challenge. This will go on for 8 - 10 weeks. Instructions for each challenge will be in the folder for that week. And as always, our core requirements and stock guidelines must be followed. Each folder will have two sub folders, one will be for any nude submissions. Please make sure you put your submission in this folder daposes.deviantart.com/gallery…
and write in the description which challenge it is for. Due to folder permissions, we are going to have to manually move them to the proper week and folders. Thank you most kindly.
Guidelines for submissions.
They must meet all DA stock and resource rules. If they are not in the stock and resource category, then you may not submit them.
Costuming if any, should be tight fiting, and minimal. Dancers tights, plain swimsuits, underwear, tight shorts, armless tee shirts, or nude are quite acceptable. If you are wearing anything, please choose colors that do not obscure the line of the body. These are after all poses, not stock in the usual sense. Nothing brightly colored or with a strong pattern, no black or very dark colors.
Hair, if long enough to obscure the face, ears, shoulders, should be up or pulled back, such as into a pony tail. Even then try to not have the hair obscuring the details of the body. If you are showing your back in the pose and have your hair in a pony tail for instance, then the hair should be over the far shoulder so as to not obsure the back. The artist should be able to see your form, body line, pose and details in good clarity.
Nudes should be natural to the pose, please do not try to use our group for sexual themes, we will just reject them and probably remove you from our group. Natural nudity that fits the situation is fine. Naturally all nudes should be marked mature.
Action poses are naturally going to be more difficult than a static pose in most cases, so good lighting is essential. Overly dark or dramatic lighting is great for light studies, but not here. The body and line should be clearly and easily visible. Props are wonderful, but do try to not have the prop obscuring the pose too much.
