Archery Photoshoot - Free Use Refs Requested by Werecakes

Archery shoot! This is a very small shoot, with the intention of helping fantasy artists with real live fleshy archer interaction! (I Jadedsilk am the model in these images, and I am not at full draw in many of these shots or have mildly irregular “not perfect” posture because I am attempting not to shoot my photographer. Imagine that n.n;) Thank you TRPSTRIFE, for your photography help! Soon we will update with some male archery model shots. While nothing here is ‘perfect’ or of ‘wonderful quality’, our goal is to provide all level of artists with decent references that are free for use without having to sell their soul. :D  We hope you enjoy!  (Better versions being uploaded to DA now, net not cooperating tonight. Obviously, pics have to be small for tumblr.)

For any questions on stock usage, please refer to this journal here:

Stock Folder Direct Link:

The people in our photographs are real people. We do not touch up, starve ourselves, or work out for anyone’s pleasure but our own. We believe in being ourselves and it shines through rather nicely. Please refrain from derogatory remarks about the models, shots, situations or photography. Remember. Free. <3


Please do not repost or re-upload these images anywhere else.

There’s always space for yet another armor tutorial, right? (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

Note that the armor I drew would be worn around 15th century, the more into the future the less and less components knight’s armor had (i. e. in early 14th century instead of greaves a knight would wear long boots only; in 12th century knights didn’t wear plate breastplates and instead a chain mail only). Also the design of armor pattern changed by year and was different in every country (i.e. in eastern Europe armors, while still looking European, were heavily influenced by Turkey). so just make sure you always do research whenever drawing an armor. And one more thing to keep in mind is that armors were expensive, knights wearing a full plate armor weren’t an often sight.

Some links that may be useful:
