Were things always like this? by Hopfield Were things always like this? by Hopfield
Just a doodle reflecting on a few journals I've been reading on stockists pages.

Thanks! And thank you for the watch too :D  Just found out that you're posting stock photos again, this is awesome news - Welcome back!  Going to have a browse right now and find something to draw.

I don't draw, so I've never looked at stock photos, but the comments for this drawing really opened my eyes! Gah people can be so ignorant.

...not to mention, unless they're hard, commenting on someone's penis size is the most pointless thing ever, and shows a huge amount of ignorance for believing flaccid size correlates with erect size (it doesn't. At all.).

Thank you for that lovely comment! This is so true! Let me tell you, a penis that measures 6in. flaccid is pretty damn impressive.

I admire the courage stock artists have for allowing us to see them. It takes a great deal of trust on their part, and it is terrible when people abuse that trust. This may sound a bit cliche, but everyone is beautiful, and it is our duty to see them as the people they are. :)

That said, this little comic is hilarious. :D

Stock isn't just for manipulations. Those wonderfully blurry shots are great for capturing poses and such for traditional and digital artists.

Ikr? I do a lot of drawing and manipping, and I hate it when clothing gets in the way, so if I find a blurry nude shot in the pose I want, I use it as a reference because it's just blurry enough that it can't be told whether the person is nude or wearing a nude-colored bodysuit. Can't exactly bring nude pictures of people into a high-school environment... Too many of my classmates are immature. Blurry images are perfect for that.

.........Ignore my ramblings... ^^;

This reminds me of why I left a prestigious and somewhat affordable uncredited art school in New York. One instructor was a complete and total douchebag telling me what I'm doing wrong. :P

All I wanted to do was draw naked people for my own practice and amusement. Is that so wrong? :ashamed:

Be reassured. That's not wrong at all, or at least I hope it isn't because that's why I draw naked people ;P

Glad you liked it. It's been driving me nuts recently, but I think people like me could do more to help. My guess is that there are a lot of people who do what I do - I think of what I'd like to draw next and trawl for ages through stock libraries seeing lots of stuff I like, but not quite what I'm after. Browsing stock is worryingly addictive. Every now and then I'll download something because I think I'll draw it some time, after I've found exactly what I'm looking for. But I leave no trace; I download and run. Or I start using a bit of stock and don't finish what I'm doing with it - and the person that went to the trouble of letting me use it won't even know I'm using their images unless I finish the piece and post it here (bet you didn't know I'd got some of yours, and got halfway through painting cemetery stock 25). So from now on I'm going to let stockists know I've visited and/or downloaded, and that I'm very grateful for their generosity. (Thank you for cemetery stock 25. Promise I'll finish it one day).

:heart: Getting into a dialogue with artists who are thinking about/using/going to use our stock is one of the awesome pleasures of being a stock provider. For the vast majority of us its not the end products (though they are a huge reward and delight in themselves) but the discussions, creativity, friendships, works in progress and everything in between that makes sharing our resources so very very rewarding :) More people should talk to one another! :nod:

It always makes me sad or cringe a little when I see comments like that on stock accounts. I'm always a little afraid it'll scare them off of sharing more images.

I know, it makes me realise how tough skinned the stockists must be. I get stressed every time I put something in my gallery in case someone says something nasty (not that I get THAT many views), so I can't imagine how hard it must be to keep posting stuff knowing that you'll probably end up attracting abuse from idiots no matter how good the material.

It's the 'omg so hot, I'd hit that' comments that I see most. I know that's meant to be flattering, but... not the place for it. The internet culture of abuse is I think a large part of why I've noticed a lot of the stock artists responding to comments less and less overall.

I have always found it interesting that people will criticize someone's body like that person can do anything about it, it's what I got and I am posing for you. The model has the intestinal fortitude to stand nude for images meant for free consumption by artists and those same artists then tell the people they have a tiny penis or their boobs are too small or they have pimples on their back or whatever. I think that a large portion of the aversion to most people modeling is this exact thing and it's a bit disgusting.

Those people can critique as much as they want. What really sad is that they can't get that different anatomy's cool. If they only can draw David, well, good for them, but I have a bed news for them xD
