Or rather than a reference thread, how-to's, tutorials and other reference materials could be submitted to Adam for review and to be posted on the main page. I think that would be more accessible to the board members and guests.
I'm going to try and work with some people on the site to get some good reference pictures up for everyone. If anyone wants to help, I'll have some from the german statue model. I'll need some from game renders, and concept art.
