Personal Quote: It's not the question that matters... The Answer is what's important
Portraits.... drawings of people... most often from just below the shoulders and up. Most modern artists use a picture as a reference rather than having someone sit in front of them for hours on end.... In current times, I doubt very much that anyone would be capable of sitting for an extended period of time anyway. Though, when it comes to drawing a person, it is important to have the portrait resemble them... however, it is not necessary to create a carbon copy of the picture which you reference... It is more important to capture the very essence of the person. Their personality; the characteristics which makes them exactly who they are ... not just the dimensions of their face. Draw who they are, so that onlookers may read their story in the eyes of the portrait... Do this... and you shall never fail... <3
