Just thought I'd share some links to various resources/refs I use for my personal studies. This is also an easier way for me to access them as well.

I will be updating this page in the future with more links as I find them.
All work is copyrighted to their respective owners...I'd probably be careful about directly referencing images in your own work. I just use these for studies or general reference. Some may allow you to use their images directly in your own work(dA stock accounts) if you credit them for the reference.
