In today’s podcast episode we’re going to talk about finding art reference and creating your own.
I prefer working from my own reference photos
For me, I much prefer creating my own reference to work from, whether that’s from my imagination, from sketches I’ve done, from a still life life set up I’ve made, or from a photo I’ve taken of my own personal things. I also prefer the subject to be something that relates directly to me.
It would be much easier for me to find high quality reference photos on copyright free sites, such as unsplash, or Pixabay and they would be far better images than any photo I could take… I mean I’m no photographer! But I just prefer the feeling that the whole process has been my own creation, from start to finish.
