are there any guides on how to character model without reference planes?
You mean how to do an actual piece of art by yourself? You learn figure drawing/sculpting the human form and a lot of anatomy.
you try and you improve
Use reference planes, stop listening to idiots. Learn anatomy, learn to draw, use references, and practice.
>>617637Reference isn't taboo you know. Use it as much as possible. When I sculpt I always have a second screen setup for ref, and that's been really helpful. Also, if you aren't just fucking about, try to draw your design for some time from different angles and in different poses. Then you'll be able to make the leap.In other words learn to draw.

>>617637It's mostly a matter of learning proportions and anatomy, but there's nothing wrong with using reference planes, my dude.
