Does an artist worth less or more when they are using reference photos for their drawings?
I guess it is always more amazing when someone can draw poses so realistic without references.... And I always wonder which artists use them, because I can't always tell.
Now I'm using some reference for my mermaid book... and I feel like I'm cheating... okay, I don't copy the exact same thing, sometimes only a leg, or a face inspire me, and I use them for a certain piece of illustration. I really feel like It's cheating, and I feel shit. I feel like it's not completely my work. But I'm sooo lack of time, and I need to hurry with it...
