    Anyone know where to find armor reference?

    Yeah, just looking for any site for armor reference. Or any other good reference sites for that matter (that are free). I know about corbis and getty images, but need more.

    Mhm, got lots of armour reference but very few good on the net. What time and area are you looking for? Maybe I can help you. Or are you just generally lookign for armour for Fantasy-style drawings?

    I was just looking for some armor reference for fantasy drawings. I never draw medieval type stuff mainly because i dont have any armor reference, so i thought i'd start lookin for some reference.

    I'd check your local library, in the childrens department. Usually you'll find good reference there ... just ask the librarian!
