Tips and Tricks Wednesday: Reference³


From the very start of learning to draw, my art teachers insisted, no, demanded that I use reference. “Your mind has a set image of something and that is not how it really looks”

They are right. So I’m going to hop on that illustrious  bandwagon and say…

Reference Reference Reference

in short


You  can’t have enough of it. When I was sculpting my baroque doll I went on google and searched baroque dresses. I had about a dozen images that I printed out and pasted into my reference book, then I worked looking at all of them to create the finished doll.

When you are sculpting or drawing or doing anything that you want to have a realistic look. The best thing to do is going and find as much reference as you can and then pay attention to it.

See how point A fits to point B.

Not how you THINK point A fits to point B
