When it comes to figure reference I think it’s fair to say that working illustrators can never have too much. Artist and educator Bastien Lecouffe Deharme currently has two sets of reference photos available through his Artstation web store. The first, “Modeling Session 01,” contains 700 HD photos while the second, “Modeling/The Fighter,” includes over 400. Live models aren’t available all the time—especially when short deadlines loom—and at a modest $16 @, these sets can be a lifesaver. Hit the links and check them out.
