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 specific 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.
I'm really glad many of you put my photos to a good use. I've seen very good artworks from you and I'd like to see more! So, in case you use any of my photos in your works, send it to me please, so I can see fruits of my work :)

And in case you don't know what to draw, you can pick any photo from my database and just let your imagination flow.
Damn, that was even quicker than I expected. By the time you're reading this my site photo-reference-for-comic-arti…has more than 30 500 high quality photo references available for download. I'm gonna celebrate very soon and YOU are going to be a part of it. Stay tuned!

Hey there!
Many of you really liked my photo references and asked for some more. You flatter me :) But since I can't upload all of them for free, I decided to give you this 30 % discount on all membership types, so you can enjoy all of my 29 000+ high quality photo references anytime you want!

Pretty sweet, huh? But wait, there's catch (isn't there always?). This offer stands only till 15. 6. 2014, so you better hurry!

Hi there, my fellow artists!
I already wrote a post about new 3D photos I'm shooting, but at that time, I had no idea I'm one of the first, who use this technology. So let's tell you something more about it.



With my stereoscopic 3D references you can get one step closer to having a real anatomy model for your drawing or illustrations in your living room anytime you need. Each pose is taken from 8 angles, which you can see either in 2D as 2 photos side by side (3840 x 1112px) or in 3D on your 3D TV or 3D monitor as a standard 1920 x 1080px resolution MPO file.

Tell me how you like this technology. Should I shoot some more?
Wow. Just WOW. It's so wow, even the doge has to be in this post.
My last journal was an invitation to my Facebook page. Back then, as you could see in the journal, my page had just over 9000 fans. But after posting my journal... *BOOM*. 




Number of fans has almost doubled since then! That's incredible! Thanks guys! I'm gonna repay you very soon, just watch my profile and you'll be the first to know!

Hey there, guys!
Welcome in my first journal entry in 2014. It's almost a tradition to summarize the past year in January, so let's get to it. For me, of course, it was a year of photo references and of massive growth of my fanbase, especially here on deviantART. Thank you for that! You can learn more about the past year in the January newsletter below. 
By the way, if you want, you can suggest what my new year resolutions should be. Shooting more photos? Shooting more photos with animals? More action and dynamic photos? What would you want me to do in 2014? Write it in comments!

Hi there, my fellow artists!
I was asked, recently, if I could upload a photo reference of a guy throwing a grenade. Since I love this community, I added a guy throwing a grenade to my stock, you can view it here: comicreference.deviantart.com/…

Is there anything else you miss here or in my entire photo stock?
Hi there,
some of you guys wrote me PMs, that you like my photos and you want to use them in your artworks. So once and for all: You can use any of my photos released here, on my Facebook page, Fineart or my Tumblr  completely for free. But since I love to see my photos being used in artworks, I always appreciate if you at least show me the final pic.

And if you like what I do, support me please by getting yourself a premium account, thanks to which you can choose and use any photo from my 27 000+ database
