Drawing Made Easy!

Wanna draw stuff like this?

It's easy!

You don't have to draw every part of human body on your own! Muscles, mimics, hand gestures, all of these are pretty hard to draw. But it's much easier using photo references!

Here are some sources of photo references of my own!

Source #1: More than 28 thousand references

Source #2: Artworks, free samples, comic news


Source #3: Useful references for artists
