Good reference material is very important in getting good drawings.  When I have to represent a well known game or movie character, I’d better make him or her recognizable. Details of costume, features or location are hard to remember, and reference makes the difference between instant recognition and, “who’s that supposed to be?” If I’m going to draw Red Beret or Baird, I need to find the details and shapes that make them who they are.  Even if you play a game religiously, when it comes down to details, you might not remember anything useful. Fortunately, we have the internet to tell us.  Unfortunately the internet likes small, blurry images that obscure the detail you seek. The “Large” setting in Google’s image search helps narrow your results to images that might carry enough detail to be useful.
For the record: “Safe Search” is your friend.  You have no idea the kind of nasty crap you can expose your brain to with seemingly innocuous search terms.  Or maybe you do.  I’m not here to judge, you sicko pervert.
