Cass' List of References

Postby Cassowary » May 29th, 2012, 11:06:08 pm

References for everyone!

I thought this would be a handy topic for all artists and aspiring artists :3 Hopefully it's allowed.

Imma put links/pictures of cool references here; feel free to post links and/or images of good references you find too. The more, the better! Also, please post the original source if possible, so that the creator of the reference can get credit.

This colour blender is incredibly useful for creating difficult hue-shifts or gradient palettes without the use of Photoshop or similar. I used it to some degree for my current avatar.

ColourLovers is a huge colour and palette resource and a huge source of inspiration if you're inspired to use a colour when you see it. Really great site!

Character design resources:

http://thundercake.deviantart.com/art/U ... -105722545 It's a long read, but this contains some food-for-thought when creating characters.

The Page of Generators is an old favourite of mine and has been useful for me when I need to think something up but I'm having trouble with it. Very useful for generating anything you might wish for- planet names, currency, story prompts, furry characters, bishonen, magical girls and even little ponies!

Fashion Era is a great resource for anyone wanting to design or draw accurate historical clothes. Good for inspiration, too, and the Victorian section is handy for steampunk fans!
