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)

Best. Costume. Ever.

imagine a Frozen GenderBend with “elsa” in this costume@w@

I noticed people were asking who this is, and I was curious too so I looked it up. He is a Japanese figure skater named Yuzuru Hanyu. His name is pretty awesome. 

Omg, here's his performance with that suit, and in the end his fans are throwing him presents.

"Facial-recognition technology is quickly becoming a mainstay of commercial and government surveillance systems. While it can provide benefits in automation and security, it is also a threat to privacy. Sophisticated algorithms can already extract information about your gender, age and even mood from a single image, and then link those physical attributes to commercial or government databases."-Face to Anti-Face

The most cyberpunk post on this website, possibly ever. 

For future reference.
