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? ^^
Dear watchers,

we have a big photo-shooting coming in few days and as we try to listen to you as much as possible we want to hear from you what poses are you looking for and we will make it happen!

Unleash your creativity and let us know in the comments which poses are you looking for or dying to get!

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
