I was looking for a site that has a bunch of references (preferably free) of objects, and was wondering where you go for them?
What kinds of objects? Typically, I just use flickr.
just any kind of object, not really looking for anything specific, just trying to find something to browse
Perhaps these can help?
Google image search if it´s just for reference?
That’s what I do.
Well google works only if you know what you’re looking for. I don’t have any clue. Thanks for the sites I’ll check them out.
Sounds like you´re looking for inspiration, not reference images.
Turn off your computer and GTFO
Use your eyes.
go to the library, trust me it’s better than a search engine
It’s amazing what you’ll find if you do even a simple google search.
Then you are looking for inspiration, not reference images.
Go to forums such as polycount, cgsociety, 3Dtotal, game-artist or even visit our own art section here on BlenderArtists and browse them like a maniac, then whenever you find something you like you save the images to your inspiration folder on your computer.
Mostly, I use google for references but I make reference photos myself where possible.
Flicker or websites like that, too.
