I have been offering these free ref sheets for a long time and now I’ve got them all in one place for your viewing, downloading and coloring pleasure. Newest Files are at the top – older ones are at the bottom. I will be adding a FAQ at the bottom.

Recieve A Free Base Via Telegram!
Do you use Telegram? You can obtain a free lineart when you hit up CatBirdBot! You can also subscribe to CatBirdBot to recieve art updates and more!
Do not remove the credit at the bottom or claim this as your art.
You may use this reference sheet in full or use parts of it with proper credit.
You may not resell this lineart in anyway. Personal use and gifts are ok.</li
You may trace the lineart if you want but you must credit and link back.
You may use these for adoptables for personal use and gifts only.
If you see someone selling my lineart, just comment with a link to this page. I cannot personally track down these thieves entirely, but with your help we can damage their market. Post a comment informing their potential victims by letting them know where they can download their own free ref sheets! Most of them are hoping no one has seen this sheet before and can’t call it out so 99 out of 100 of them will back off as long as they know they won’t get away with it. Here’s a comment you can copy and paste!
I recognize this! This lineart is provided by #artbyzhivago for free over at http://www.Cat-Bird.com/free-reference-sheets – The very first rule when you open the file says, in BIG RED LETTERS, that you are not allowed to sell this sheet. Maybe you missed that?
That is the best program you can use because this is the program that was used to make these files.
I do not use any other software so I cannot offer any sort of help or assistance in using the sheets with anything else. I don’t know how to use GIMP or Sai or any of those… so if you want to use the sheet on there, that’s fine, it should work, but I can’t help you!
Here are some other programs that have been reported to work, but again, I have no experience with them so try them at your own risk!
Photoshop or any other program that supports PSDs.

How do I make a __________? Due to the swappable nature of the reference sheet, there are no rules saying you have to choose the “right” species for everything. Tinker around with the combinations and see what you can get the reference to look like! You can check out the full species list including recipes for how to frankenstein together even more species here.
Can you add *species specific detail here*? Suggestions may be considered on a case by case basis. Common/recurring suggestions are more likely to be added than highly specific things.

OMG THIS FILE IS HUGE!!! The file is made at a high enough resolution that you can print your reference if needed. Download a smaller or flat version file if your computer or device has trouble using the file.
