Does anyone else do this - example below. I'm pulling together 'mood boards' for my characters, and using those to begin sketching them out (ultimately with a view to creating painted portraits for them - or at least that's the plan). As my current project isn't human based, these include photos of animals, furs, scales, eyes, that suit the idea I have of my characters, to help flesh them out and which I can draw from when writing them. It was just a thing I decided to come up with - don't know if it's recommended anywhere. Is it something else others here do?
