using a reference

Final drawing
Reference photo

So i’ve been wanting to try drawing a person from a photo for a while now, and this is my first try – it’s not great.

The final thing looks okay I guess? But it just didn’t go like how I hoped. For one, I had to trace more than I wanted to, and I wasn’t able to capture the same textures? Plus, I even got too lazy to do all the accessories…

But this drawing was fun to do in the sense that I really liked doing the makeup and highlights! I think it might be fun to try drawing something in photoshop instead because SAI has some room for improvement in terms of improving textures, etc.
