Sometimes briefs will appear in Google or other search engines when saved, and sometimes you might feel precious about that gem of an idea and not want to risk others seeing it! Simply make it Private by clicking the 'eye' icon found next to any brief in your profile.

Character briefs are proving extremely popular on this site. This broad range of Character Poses will assist your Character Designs when deciding a pose for your Character to ensure it has correct perspective, accurate anatomy and proportions.
You can use these poses as reference to copy from, or you can fast track your design and save huge amounts of time by tracing right over the top. This archive can be filtered by traits such as the Demeanour, Weapon, Stance Type plus more.
You can also take advantage of the ready made lighting setup which will help when it comes to rendering the design because you understand how the light is already hitting the form in that area.
Art Based Learning
Still Life Photos
These photos are geared towards art learning and to better your understanding of how Light, Shadow and Colour come into play with various forms in a variety of ways.
Each image utilises a different lighting and colour arrangements to create a collection of interesting shapes, moods and lighting effects that you can later apply to your own works. The gallery also gives you the option to filter images based on what you want to improve e.g Form Changes such as Curves or Edges, Material and even lighting effects such as Bounce Light and Scattered Light. Unique images are added every month with an aim to eventually cover every art theory lighting principle.
Because these images are so unique and interesting as subject material, the end result of your art should reflect the same quality and should prompt a good response should you choose to publish your artwork socially or professionally.
