    No! You're a blasphemer!





    ...kidding.

    Seriously though, there's nothing wrong with photo reference. Just don't use it EVERY time. Photo and life reference both have their advantages.

    i use photo references, but not exclusively.

    i often don't really have the time to attend life drawing/painting classes, so i have my fellow artist friends pose for me, too.
