I want to do a lot of master studies, but I am pretty ignorant about great illustrators/images. Also, I don't know if there are websites with good quality hi-res images that people tend to visit.
I seriously began applying myself fairly recently, about a year ago, and my education background was in the engineering/sciences, so my art history-type knowledge is lacking.
I know about some artists, like Pyle, Sargent, Wyeth(?), but I don't know which images are more "iconic" or if there's just a some general resources more experienced artists tend to know about vs newbies like myself.
ps. i know google images is there, and I've begun mining it, but a lot of the images are hit or miss.. lots of low quality images :c
