FAQ #217: What are "Stock and Resources" and can I use them in my submissions?

I think that your concept in this shoot is wonderful and the costuming and posing of the model is also very nice. I would however agree (if a bit less strongly lol)with Anne the Archer, that the elements of true archery could make this whole series just a bit shaper, even in art and fantasy we are best when the subject is supported by realism. Stance and pose can be chalked up to the artistic view of the subject certainly and though some do draw a bow with a two fingered grip, it is rare and requires great finger stregnth. Fearies on the wing may follow the technique of Mongol horsemen in not having a fixed knock point and bringing the string to the nose, but again, this is a bit odd. I think the thing that maks me cringe a bit, archery instructer-wise, is the fact that her bow elbow is fully extended and her wrist is not strait. If she had a string in this bow and were to shoot it, the big red welt on the inside of her forearm from the string slap would have taught her not to do it again!
Minor knit picky stuff that archers will see, but all in all the pictures are enchanting.

You're so beautiful and your style is perfect. I love the outfit and the color used in most of your stock images :)
Although, I have a little remark to do about the pose on that picture and almost all archer pics. The pose is so wrong, even though the concept is great. I mean, you can pose beautifully, but the archer pose is wrong and can't be used as a reference. Your chest should be turned to your right, your lovely back should be showing, your shoulders shouldn't be lifted and your right elbow should be facing back.
I think that for such specific pieces of stock images, you should probably take a look at archer pictures, how they hold the bow and try to simulate the stance.
Note that nothing said above is  meant to offend you :) It is just a tip to make your stock images more useful. Huggle!

Draw to the cheek… (this is an awesome angle to play with depth of field from, btw)

Sight down the shaft of the arrow…

You've got good muscle tone; I'd love to see your back and shoulders, in combination with concentration and profile…

Erect stance and upright posture…

And release!…
