Tips On Using References by MadameNyx Tips On Using References by MadameNyx
I know that I am certainly not a master of drawing and NONE of these sketches are a 100% accurate! But I felt like sharing my way of thinking with you guys and I really hope that it was at least a little useful to you~ ^^ <3

I read through the text like 10 times... I still probably managed to miss some spelling mistake... If I did, please just ignore it? x_x

Thank you for writing this. I've had this suspicion since about second grade that there was more to drawing from imagination than the all-or-nothing approach I was taught in early drawing classes: copy a "reference" or make it up using only a knowledge of proportions. Only with doing gesture drawings of live models in my art classes this year have I finally gotten close to figuring out what you say here. This is how to use a reference! I wish someone had told me this so much earlier, but it's nice to know now rather than never. :) Thanks again!
