Search Engines

Please note that photos found on search engines are not free to use however you want. I use search engines primarily for inspiration and personal studies. Take for example: If I’m studying perspective, I look for images of buildings/cities and trace the perspective lines and use the image as references on where to place things and in the process I might make things up here and there. This is why images that have watermarks on them don’t bother me because I’m not using the image, but only using it as a reference, a starting point you could say.

Character Design / Figure Study

Links with NSFW means “Not Safe For Work.” They contain nudity and or images that might not be appropriate for a working environment with others around, so proceed with caution. If you’re a Christian who is against nudity, here’s a post I put together.

  • CharacterDesigns.com (NSFW): “Here at CharacterDesigns.com we provide resources for anyone from brand new designers to veterans in the industry – references for poses, weapons, monsters, style, and more. Stay tuned as we add more!”
  • Croquis Cafe (NSFW): “The Croquis Cafe is a figure drawing resource providing FREE reference photos and videos of artist models in classic and dynamic poses.”
