Although drawing and painting "from life" is way much more effective and efficient than drawing from photos (I'll be writting a separate journal about this soon, no worries), you simply can't have a person to model for you every time you want to create something. And there are situations when you don't exactly know how to place that bloody hand or if the foot is drawn correctly. Similiar issues can happen with architecture, perspective... with everything you draw. Then, when you look for help, you may stumble upon Stock gallery and you find awesome things. Remember about crediting the used stock directly!

the hand stock is quiet absurd...as if the drawers cant look at their own hands

Have you ever held your hands still for several hours? Or been able to get the exact same post? Or drawing it from the front? There are a lot of poses I've drawn that putting my own hand in that position at the perspective I wanted to see it from would have been painfull to say the very least. And certainly not a position I could hold long term.

ok than study it, see the light on it, feel the light on it and take a picture in the pose. And I think the picture would be more real if it would be from a life that is slighlty adjusted several times than copied from a flat photo. Look I dont feel a need to argue, I just feel that we are depending too much on photos and its distorting our perception because we are loosing the grip of the real world and we are too lazy to think about it

Not quite. Male and female hands differ a lot - try drawing female hands on male character, it'll look ridiculous.

all hands are different not just male and female...I think theres much bigger difference in thin and fat...what I was trying to say that stock should be used limitadely just to understand the position of objects and the light...in type of hands it should be able to be adjusted

How about drawing two left hands holding each other? Do you have two left hands? Also, you can't view your hand in all positions from every point of view you'd need for a drawing. (: I spent my time on this feature and I made sure to put useful things in it, thanks for appreciation.
