Female Archer 6 by syccas-stock Female Archer 6 by syccas-stock
Here's a collection of early archery stock with different models from our Archery Week. Different gals, different bows, different arrows, etc.


ABOUT MY ARCHERS:
For the experts among you: Liz is a semi-experienced archer, nobody really knows what that bow is supposed to be - her father picked it up at a fleamarket - it's midsection looks like a bike-handle. Still, it works for her, she hits the target and her tournament scores were pretty good so far.

Generally speaking, we are a group of intuitive archers. Our individual anchor points (point in face where the arrow is drawn to) vary from person to person, they are however consistent - most of us use cheekbone or corner of mouth.
Of course you can always argue about details and posture correction, but what's important to me is that if you use this stock in your art you can be sure that this is functional archery.

For more information on archery please check my Beginner's Guide to Archery below:

A Beginner's Guide to Archery in Stock and ArtWith movies like Avengers, Brave and Hunger Games, 2012 seems to be the Year of the Archers and many artists have already been inspired to create their own archer characters.
Whether you're thinking about having one of your OCs pick up bow and arrow (in writing or drawing) or you're a stock artist who wants to create some decent archery stock, I hope this little guide helps you understand the wonderful thing that is archery.
First and foremost, a little disclaimer: For this article I will mainly draw from my own experiences over the past few years. I am what you'd call an intuitive or instinctive archer, which roughly comes closest to medieval-styled archery. At the moment I'm shooting a modern Samick bow (without stabilizer or sights) and am in the process of making my own recurve bow out of robinia wood (similar to a few bows you can see in my gallery).
However, in archery there are many styles and differences in material used, draw, stance, finger position etc. – it all depend
