3 Buil d your own visual lib rary
While it’s useful to study characters from pop culture, spend time creating your own file of visual references. I usually use Pinterest to save my images of reallife photos, screenshots from video games, actors in costume, game production art, and even examples of imagery from artists that I follow online. I’m always adding to my Pinterest pages so that they don’t become stale. Being organised is an important part of your reference routine.
