Silly reference photos for ALL by shoomlah Silly reference photos for ALL by shoomlah
Do you take embarrassing photos of yourself as reference for character poses/expressions? Well, I know I sure as hell do, so in light of :icontracyjb:'s fantasticpiece about the importance of dynamic expressions in art [link] , I'm posting a video of my stupidly embarrassing reference photos for you to peruse:

Video! [link] Video!

It's very silly-looking, but we should all be doing it.
