How to use photo references step by step

Having troubles with drawing? Here's one way how to use my references and make your life one bit easier!

Step #1 - Download a photo reference

Download the most suitable photo reference from my huge database of more than 25 000 high quality photo references.

Step #2 - Modify the photo

Draw a concept of your character. Start with basic lines and shapes.

Step #3 - Do your magic

My photos can help you as a references for muscles, expressions, dynamic moves etc., but the magic of drawing is up to you.

Suggest a pose and I'll shoot it!

If you can't find the photo reference you need in my photo database (impossibru! :D ), you can always tell me what you need and I'll shoot the photo for you no problem :) You can suggest it to me via this form.

Soooo, how can I help you? ^^
Hey there, all of ya!
deviantArt is full of very talented people, but unfortunately not all of them has 9 € to spend on premium membership on my site. That's a shame, because I believe my photos can help many of you to draw even better.
That's why I've decided to give you an offer: Make a videotutorial on drawing an artwork using my photos step by step and I'll give you access to all of my 32 000+ high quality photo references. If you're interested, send me samples of your work in my inbox and we'll make a deal. The membership is for one month, but I'm sure you'll be able to get the most of it in that time. In case your videotutorial is really good and you're willing to draw more for me, I'll give you longer access.

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
