Sketch from photo reference

Using a photo of my son Isak, and some guidelines drawn in the start, makes it way easier to create a drawing with more accurate proportions.


This photo is the reference photo I used for the Video above.

What I learned from this exercise was how important it is to get the proportions right, especially the eyes. When we look at a drawing of a face, we usually get drawn towards the eyes, so if they don’t match each other, we will notice this error right away. To illustrate this I will also include a video I created of a face without using any reference photo. So check out the video bellow to see how NOT to draw a face.
