Free stock photo sites. I was cleaning my pc's favorites folder when i came across a little folder called stockphoto's, i forgot all about that one.. so i wrote them down, tried to find their terms of use or FAQ and put them here, maybe you will find it usefull:)

Stockphoto archive

All these images are royalty free for personal and non-commercial use, but play safe you've read the disclaimer before you download. mostly interesting textures, a bit confusing to use because its in sessions instead of category's, so you need to go into the session to see what's in it. ideal stock for dark artist, i think:)
