    How do you use reference photo?

    Maybe dummy question but how are you people using reference photo's? I mean photos for drawing environments. Are you draw some part from photo then add your ideas or just look at how things are in real world and try to simulate this in your work? Ok i understand how to use reference for mountains and landscapes but how to apply photo reference of a city for expl to my painting?

    Have you seen the sticky above?


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Thanks. I saw this threat earlier(probably when this question wasn't so important for me), so i forgot almost everything what was written there. Sorry for that post. No more clone posts. Only search.

    I have read entire post above, saw how people use their references from various photos combined to single one but still have one question: can someone post example of environment creation using lots of references. Would be cool to see one.

    Why don't you try doing one. It's the only way you're going to learn.

    I was thinking of that I actually will do some of this to see how it works.
