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

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"?
