I didn't know whether to post this in the links section or not. I wanted to start a thread putting together a lot of references and guides. So I am going to include some of the stuff I have found and if anyone else finds anything worth contributing, post a comment with the link or your ideas.

One thing that has helped me quite a bit is checking out my local zoos facebook page. They have alot of really cool images that I can use to learn from.

gumroad.com: Reference- Skull, Cars, Motorcycles, some poses
These are 100+ pictures of vehicles and Skulls and a few figma poses. No money necessary however all money accumulated is going toward the next PDF, one more focused on poses. (Holly Brown)

A quality thread to be sure.
I'll be contributing to this semi-regularly. For now, I'm going to post a photo reference source I shared in a different thread a few days ago.
