Artist Photos for Reference!!! [Sep. 1st, 2004|12:32 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
harmy just posted this - I thought I'd share it here. I get a LOT of new artists asking me where to get copyright-free photos for references, of models, for poses, etc. etc. etc. If you're not lucky enough to have friends who send you photos, or are sick of doing self-portraits, you might want to go here:

http://www.wetcanvas.com/RefLib/

They have a wide variety of free pictures for you to base paintings on, use as photo references, etc. with no strings attached! Thousands of different people, animals (even cats, hehe!), flowers, plants, buildings, facial features, etc.

Thought that might be helpful!

I'm always on the lookout for models - if you ever have spare photos, I have my open call instructions here:

Hi,
I thought I would contribute this link:
GIMP copyright-free links
It has links to governmental sites that have wildlife and space photos.

No problem! I love sharing information about FREE stuff!!! :)
Although, if you think about it, I guess we pay for it anyway with our taxes =P.

The image library thing at wetcanvas is great! So handy since I'm always taking reference photos or at least trying to of myself which aren't always successful!
Ooo, I might be able to dig out some pics of me to send to you for your models thing!
