lots of animal bone structures and skulls, very useful as reference for creature design =)
Good place to grab some bugs.
Useful reference photography for specific plants and animals:
While looking for some armor reference I stumbled upon two forum threads absolutely packed with great pictures of armor from movies, larps, history reenactments, hobby blacksmiths, etc.

And to save you guys the hassle I rar'ed my armor reference folder and put it up on mediafire for your enjoyment. :)
Not so much a resource then as a tool to help eye strain-

Wouldn't recommend using while coloring, but linearting and reading should be fine.

Also deskpins is a great program to pin up windows to do studies from here's an example. It will pin up any window as the topmost window and you can work underneath it. It's also great for pinning up lectures or livestreams and working with them.

You can download it from here-

Yes, I actually found some fairly realistic skulls at my local pet store Along with other cool props that's fairly realistic as well. So check your pet store and go and look in the aquarium section, you might find something really cool too.

Hi guys. I wrote a blog post on material theory according my brain. Hope it's useful..

Another neat 30, 60 and 90 second gesture drawing program. While it comes with some 3D models, the really cool thing about it is that you can import image files that are on your hard drive. If you've got loads of images sitting on your hard drive (or that pr0nz collection you keep for "reference"), you can put them to some good use with this 30, 60 or 90 second gesture drawing tool.

This is basically my folder of full bodied women photos I collected over the years that I usually use for timed gestures; some of the photos are quite large, never had the time to re-size them. Also, none of the pictures have any porn, only women.

Don't know how long it will last on mediafire but it's a pretty big file just pm me if you need it re-uploaded

600+ pics of full bodied women 100mbs:

300+ faces
Thanks Kaji for reminding me to post my second pack of hand references ^^;
