Digital Portrait Drawing from an Overlaid Image

In this drawing, we use the reference image directly on the canvas so we can draw by referring to this image. This is different to the traced method where we needed to alternate between the traced image at the back and our drawing canvas.

In this approach of drawing, we have a stationary image to refer to on the same canvas. This brings about a different learning approach where you are more focused on the image and less distracted by the tools. This is a good way for beginner/intermediate artists to build up their drawing skills.

Happy Drawing!
