Lychee's Reference Pile

This blog is for reblogging any photos, illustrations, tutorials, etc, I find to use for drawing reference later. This will mostly consist of useful stuff for figure drawing and clothing. For simplicity I'm shoving most of this stuff into a handful of tags

-Tutorials (Step by step instructional imgage)
-Anatomy (Either anatomy illustrations or artistic nudes, and occasionally pose references)
-Fashion (Anything clothing relevant)
-Pretty Things (A sort of miscellaneous category- things with good composition, color usage, people I want to draw, etc)
