NEED Good Reference PHOTOS? by Doctor-Pencil NEED Good Reference PHOTOS? by Doctor-Pencil
CLICK the LINK to view and DOWNLOAD ALL of my FUTURE REFERENCE PHOTOS: [link]

NOTHING...and I mean NOTHING inspires me more to draw than outstanding photos!!! Have you been in a rut on what to draw? Look through these! I believe that a drawing can only be as great as the photo you try to duplicate. Boring photo = Boring drawing? Awesome photo CAN = Awesome drawing? I have to boastfully say that I've gotten pretty good at choosing a good photo, which is one of the ingredients to a good drawing!!! :D:D

I have created a Google Picasa photo album with ALL of my reference photos for FUTURE Drawings, and thought I would share them with everyone. I hunted them down on the web using Google Images, saved them cropped them and adjusted their contrast, so what you see in what I will draw 99% of the time. They should ALL be large enough to see details, and like me, print them as large as I draw them. Feel free to share and download them, draw them etc. It will be growing as I add more to it. Again, it is for my FUTURE drawings.

I also plan to create another with ALL of my PAST reference photos I used in past drawings. Hope it helps you? :D:D

NEW to DA and have not seen my DRAWING TIP GUIDE? Here you go...

Also, you may want to follow me on Twitter? I often post WIPs of new drawings and random TIPS I do not post on DA

Amazing!
I always believed that a great photo ends up with a great drawing. And i'm always in trouble to explain other people that in order to have a great art work it will need a great quality photo. But it is impossible to explain it to them :D

THANK YOU for this link and for collecting photos in perfect quality!! :dummy: :happybounce: :#1:
