Referencing from Photos 101: Figure reference « Wicked Fae It’s an inescapable fact, if you want to be an artist you have to observe real things. Whether you’re painting fantasy figures, classical studies, still life, or architecture, you need to have a good solid understanding of how things actually look. Most people, when they first begin to draw, use symbols to represent the things they know, not the things they actually see: a curved line is a mouth, a pair of circles are eyes, a ball with five sticks of varying lengths attached is a hand. Now, we all know that these things are far more complicated than that—it’s how well you are able to perceive and then recreate that complexity that will measure your abilities as an artist. Sadly, most of us cannot afford to have scantily clad models drop by every day so we can practice drawing humans; and for some, life drawing classes either don’t come soon enough, or aren’t affordable.
