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

Photo-reference-for-comic-artists.com



Source #2: Artworks, free samples, comic news

Facebook



Source #3: Useful references for artists

Man this is awesome. How can I support you in a non-monetary way? I'm broke! But I know I'll be making use of your work and I would like to somehow help you in exchange.

Hey! Just checked out your stock gallery - AMAZING.
I'm wondering what the rules are for commercial use on one of your free images? Like if I use one of the free images from here on deviant art can I use it for an artwork I want to sell? Let me know!
And again, awesome work! Really useful stuff.
