Work­ing from a photo ref­er­ence

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist Insight Fantasy Portraits -

When draw­ing a face from a photo ref­er­ence, it’s not nec­es­sary to copy ev­ery sin­gle tonal shift in the photo. Plac­ing the fea­tures prop­erly and mak­ing them the right size is much more im­por­tant than ren­der­ing ev­ery freckle and wrin­kle. Sim­plify some of the tran­si­tions in the face, and then leave the com­plex de­tail­ing for the sur­round­ing or­ganic at­tributes.
