Hey there!
Welcome to the first entry of my soon-to-be-regular "Featured work" series. In this series, I'm gonna show you my personal favourite user works created using one of my photos. Here we go!

Title: The Joker
Author: Michael Grieco

Drawing Made Easy!

Wanna draw stuff like this?




It's easy!


You don't have to draw every part of human body on your own! Muscles, mimics, hand gestures, all of these are pretty hard to draw. But it's much easier using photo references!

Here are some sources of photo references of my own!

Source #1: More than 28 thousand references

Photo-reference-for-comic-artists.com



Source #2: Artworks, free samples, comic news

Facebook



Source #3: Useful references for artists
