Re-uploading this sucker.

Some people have asked how I get my portraits looking so real/accurate, and some have asked what it means to go by a "grid".

The old Grid Technique can be used just as well in Photoshop to get the proportions right, just like using it on paper to enlarge a photograph you want to draw. It's also a great way to train your eye and break down the whole image into small, manageable sections.

I did this pretty fast, so it's kinda rough and rushed... but you get the gist of it.

Once I'm happy with my lines, I discard the Grid Layer, and freestyle the painting!

@00:04Thank you. This would be really useful for my art classes. Today is their first lesson on using a grid.

I make the grid myself, then copy and paste the same one over my reference image, and one on my blank canvas :XD:
I'm sure there are other ways to make them too!

Oh Ok I see. Oo But may I also ask, if this grid of your have a multi-function size? That you can use one over and oner for every drawing? Or do you make it all the time new? :)

I see :) How small or large you would say one should use for different picture sizes? :)So how many single "cubes"?

@01:06yes it does... still if you don't get right the shadows the proportions won't do the entire job.

@01:06Ooh, clever! I must try this in photoshop. I always hated grids in my traditional art classes, probably because we had to measure and draw up all those darn lines. Automatic grids, what a wonderful thing!

@01:06Hahah that's true- not to mention trying to erase the grid once the drawing is finished! :lol:

@01:06I know all about that, believe me! My drawings always ended up looking like unscrambled puzzles of this type [link] (not sure what they are called in English).

@01:05Easier, yes. Time saving, yes.

"Cheating?"...I'll have to get back to you when I consult my "Strict Rules of Art" handbook. I think I lent it to Da Vinci. Dunno where he went off too, Damn bludger =P

It's no more cheating than using a ruler to draw up matching guidelines over a pic/subject :nod:

@01:05lol. :P I disagree with the cheating aspect of it i just felt like sharing. Some of my favorite pencil drawings i've done i had used gridding and I could not submit them into my portfolio cuz they weren't considered 'original'. :\
