Reference Photos For Artists
Using and finding reference images to use within our artworks can often be a daunting task – especially when it comes to copyright/royalty-free images.
Thankfully, there are a bunch of different reference resources which we can use for free! I’ve listed a few of my favourites below for you to browse. If you want to read more about copyright vs royalty-free you can do so here.
Paint My Photo
I would just like to mention one particular website which isn’t free but it does host a huge array of reference photos for you to use for a small fee of $5 or a bundle of 5 images for $10. This site is my absolute favourite for highly detailed, quality images and you should definitely check it out!
