when I first started drawing I worked from photo reference usually, then I went to college and took really intense 6 hour long lifedrawing classes (every day for like a year til I had to drop out) which really leveled up my anatomy, now if im doing a portrait of someone I usually have them take reference pics for me, and every once in a while I’ll draw something from life. basically drawing from life and using reference is your friend, if I draw something without a reference the pose usually comes out boring bc while i can easily draw basic body shapes from memory I get much more dynamic results with a reference.
im crying this looks exactly like gina I think this is the first time i’ve done a portrait of someone and it actually looks like them
