The poses look nice, but only top right and bottom mid right are correct-ish.

Instead of just ranting, i'll give you an advice (if you ever iwsh to redo this stock)

- Alway keep your shoulders, hips (and when standing) feet in line + back straight.
- Keep your bow-arm in line with your shoulder (otherwise you will kill your back muscles)

I'll go by the pictures one at a time:
Left; You'll only do this pose when considering to run (for instance) but with your bow relaxed. (You'll never be able to draw a clean shot)
mid-up: Never do this. Either jump back, or have your tendon in a relaxed position (since in fear, an archer will not recoil, but either jump back or just shoot from positiion as described above)
right-up: ok-ish... arm is not in line with shoulders. Give the tendon more slack and it'll appear as if the archer is semi-ready and observing something. Archer will not shoot with his/her arm like this.(Is a killer for your back muscles)
left-bottom: A no-go! Change your legs around and it is... plausible. Arm positions is in line-ish with shoulders, which is good!!
mid-bottom; pretty much ok-ish... for stock in any case. 
right-bottom; feet are too far apart, arm is not in line with shoulder and you are not relaxing your bow-arm (that's why your shoulder pops-up)

AS I said before; this is not to rant, but to give you an idea. Afterall Stock-images should be close to 'realistic' as possible for whomever uses it.

Good luck in any case! and got to tell; overall is the stock you make really helpful with anatomy drawings!!

Omg I do archery too and well yeah your totally right though don't forget she didn't wear the thing on her fingers so i must hurt a lot!
(sorry about my ranting) but in the first and second frame she is neither pushing to much in front or she is leaning back a lot and in archery you have to stand straight ALL THE TIME! (again sorry for the ranting)

This is pretty, but insanely wrong. As an archer this just hurts my eyes and soul! First off form, what the heck is she doing? Second off, her grip, why shheee holding with four fingers?!?!?!? I'm sorry but everything is wrong with this, it's beautiful, but only to people who don't know archery. Soorrryy I had to rant.

... Please don't shoot a real sized bow like this. Pretty pretty please. One should never use their fingers to hold the arrow in place... arrow rests are amazing, and exist for reasons. 
The other issues with form, as previously mentioned, would be corrected by using a proper sized bow to you... but I can see why you would not want to buy something so expensive for one photo shoot :P
I do think that the photos look very nice aside from that however. Very inspired, even though not technically correct

this pose is totally wrong for shooting and arrow. It is wrong in so many ways...if you want to be useful as a reference pose please inform yourself previously on how a bow is held

Very clear from her hand/finger placement that she doesn't know what she's doing. Look at her pointer finger! LOL!

The arrow's on the wrong side in the left hand draw photos (bottom right), usually it sits on the other side of the bow unless you're shooting a japanese yumi bow I think (: also just get a bigger bow, otherwise the archer's form will never be right!

I do like the dramatic expression and the overall effect, but looking at the thumb was kind of painful.

As someone who had done some archery as sport, you would terribly hurt your fingers and arms if you loosed the arrow from such a position. You might want to get yourself an adequately sized-bow and look up some pics of sports archers or movie archers. Maybe watching a video about archery might help, too :)

The model is great but that bow makes it look very awkward. You can get an actual bow for pretty cheap in a sporting goods store and it would look much more realistic.

Though it might be good that's a toy bow since using that form with a real bow will cause serious injury.

The bow.... I...  I'm fairly sure it is strung backwards....  And it is just *so* small for the model....   

If i might be so bold as to make a suggestion, if you should use that bow again, it might be better to have the model just to pretend to draw it - that way the arm can be pulled back further so it would look less awkward. :)  Also, you might do a quick Google image search on archers - just a few seconds spent would have made these pics really something. Having the model see someone hold and draw a bow correctly first would do wonders for the usefulness of this stock. :)

Your lighting is great. The model is very beautiful. I love the dress and I LOVE your gallery.

Honestly, you should really either correct them or just remove this stock, because it's going to lead to way too many errors in drawing because it's not at all reliable, except for excellent poses. The hands are held wrong, the bow is tiny, etc.

This has great poses, but that bow is way too small for the person holding it, so her arms are being held differently than they would be for a properly sized bow.

Not to mention the bow is not at full draw, bow hand is incorrect, you would never place a finger on top of the arrow, the flights would cut you to ribbons.

You're over stretching your arm, which will lead to bruises when releasing the arrow. Otherwise, great stock!

I rather suspect the finger. She needed to roll her left elbow so it's pointing out and not down and aside from pull her finger out of the way, she also needed to relax her grip on the bow-stave, allowing the tension to pull it into her hand. Her drawing hand should be holding the string in the first joint only. I am afraid to say that anyone using this as a guide to illustrating an archer is not going to be getting a very accurate result at all.
