Visual development art is a powerful source of inspiration, even when the final product is disappointing, the beauty and the excellent draftsmanship of the artworks created for movies, video games and comics stays untouched. 

Studying the work of other artists can be an incredibly useful tool to help you in the further development of your artistic skills, but looking for specific material on the Internet can be extremely distracting and time consuming, and that's when our library comes in. The Character Design References visual library on Pinterest offers a quick way to access to an extensive and carefully researched collection of model sheets, concept artworks, sketches and tutorials from established and promising artists working in animation, movies, games, illustration and comics. 

We hope that by observing how other artists have interpreted different subjects with their lines and colours, you will explore other shape languages that you may not think of or be aware of, regardless of the fact that you are dealing with an art block or simply seeking for inspiration to boost your own creativity and imagination. 


The Boards

All the material collected in our library is organised in specific boards. Each of them include reference sheets, tutorials, video-tutorials, sketches, production art, illustrations and everything that can inspire you and that you can use to connect ideas and convey the emotion for your own project. 

Remember that you need to log in on Pinterest to see the material collected in the visual library. Click on any subject in this list to be redirected to a specific reference board filled with useful resources.
