I wanted to ask something to the other deviants like me, whether core or not
I was told by many teachers that for improving the drawing skill i should only (or mostly) copy, from pages and illustrations by other authors.
Is it really so true, in your opinion?
Personally, i can use some photo reference time by time, but in the most recent times i've been drawing just from my mind, i think it is a good exercise too, that makes you use your photographic memory, this is the way i produced those two sketches, for example:
I don't know if it is me, but, i found copying too much easy to actually learn something by doing that,
That's why i created a specific folder to put all the photographic portraits in it:
So i can let myself get inspired by some images i've seen previously, or by the style of authors i like that could influence me, IMHO this is the best way, but, i'm open to debate on it if you would like to give your advice,
i'd be most thankful ^^
