it started as a way for me to create, pose and light my ideal models then pick my angle for the image to paint…. It doesn’t help that there is a wealth of wonderful free or inexpensive content out there and I am a bit of a collection freak so I can’t help but download everything…. I used to use myself for a reference or my own mind, but lately my poses and angles have been getting more adventurous, and harder to realize without reference.
