Reference Sites

Need reference? I've listed a few of the different sites I've found or discovered over time that have images or textures of different things. They're good places to look if you're designing a prop or set and need to look at something to make sure you're doing it right.

CG Textures
Mainly meant for finding textures for computer generated stuff, but can still be studied for claymation stuff.

Morgue File

This is a site that has a lot of free reference images for artists. The site says, "The purpose of this site is to provide free image reference material for use in all creative pursuits. "

Google Images
Google images is always a good place to look if you're just searching for reference. Make sure you don't print something off for a prop(like an image of a map or ad) unless you know the copyright information about it.

Facial Expressions: A Visual Reference for Artists
If you need some reference for character animation or sculpture, you may want to consider getting this book. It has lots of images of different people giving different expressions for reference.

The Blueprints.com

This site has nice blueprints of different things like cars, weapons, ships, humans, and other things. If you need to build a prop or anything in one of those categories, it may be a good idea to see if it's on that site so that you can build one to more exact measurements.

Those are just a few of the many resources you can find for reference on the internet(or in a book). If you need more, I'm sure there is much more out there.
