The older I am, the more I wonder why did I resist the use of photos for the reference..?
Could it be the youthful pride that 'I don't want crutches if I can walk' or fear that I might become 'too dependant on documentation'..?Or, is it plain lazyness?
This is the gorgeous Denise Masino - https://www.facebook.com/DeniseMasino1?fref=ts - and on this link you can find the photo referenced for this thoroughly digital drawing, no paper sketch at all, just Wacom Intuos4 tablet and a wee program called SAI plus touch-ups in CS3.
Okay, I've posted here some photo-ref'd drawings already, I no longer want to hide the fact that besides pin-ups I sometimes grab compositions for my comics panels from photographic images that suit the storytelling needs.
There.I said it.
