The first thing if You want to do portraits is to know anatomy. Start with learning what is under the skin and understand how it affects the face. When You got that covered You must know how face is structured. That will give You the knowledge how to light head. Head is a cube-like object. (yea! NOT sphere!) On face we have other little cube-like object (nose).
A great exercise is to find photos of a face and draw structure lines over it.
You see clearly now? The structure of a nose, where cheeks are, forehead etc.
After doing this You will be able to create the face from a memory using these helping lines.
Like here. This is Michael Hampton exercise:
You see how everything fits thanks to the structure lines?
Drawing a face requires TONS of practice. Find thousand photo references and practice.
Understand the anatomy and face structure first. It’s basic.That would be the things I would recommend for everyone who start drawing faces
I also would love to share with You my newest art discovery Learning video channel from New Masters Academy. THIS! THIS I tell You is the gold I love the professional knowledge of the masters plus this YT channel is for free, which is super nice ^^
There's word going around about Snuffbomb. Are you going to defend him?
I’m neutral, I’m not gonna be on his side, and I’m not gonna be on the anti-snuff side. I already have enough on my mind as it is ( school, college, family, ect. ) and dealing with this now is just making me feel extremely stressed. I don’t want to get involved with this sort of thing because firstly, the majority of this whole argument contains young adults and up. I’m only a minor which won’t be a great idea considering they could put me down easily xP Secondly is that considering that I still work for Steve on Creeps, I fear as if they won’t take me either way. Or that the community will think I’m on his side ( which I’m not ) and turn against me. I fear that it’ll happen and it’ll haunt me. Thirdly is that I don’t care about this fight, but with what I’m getting from the public about me as of now scares me to death. Considering I know a lot about his personal info and other things, people until today have been asking ( some forcing ) for the truth from me about him, to take screenshots to see if he was acting perverted on me, telling me which side I’m taking and how I should be on this side or that side, you get the whole point. It’s just now that people turn to me if it’s the truth, and been telling me what to do, or have been insulting me that I still work on Creeps
Guys, I’m only 16 years old
All I’m asking is that I don’t want to get involve, yet I was constantly being asked and tormented by such rude things from people ( even mentioning my name in the public like “Sabrina was a victim from this!!” ). I don’t need this for my junior year, or even the rest of my high school year. It kills me inside and makes me feel so scared that I fear that I’ll have to deal with this everyday. I know that some of you are thinking that I’m thinking this too much, or that I think of the worst case scenario, but in reality I’m really worried about my well-being on the net. I thought I would’ve gotten through this year without some sort of argument, and get a great education in the future ( though I’m not keeping my hopes high ). And if this does happen daily towards me about people messaging me about personal things or insults, I’m gonna lose it. I just want to be left alone, please

What has been happening this week to me has been terrifying. I have been dealing with people shoving their comments down my throat about me and telling me what to do. Telling me to be on this side, or that side, harassing me by putting me in stories with him when I want nothing from this. It's stuff like this that with great power comes great consequences when you don't use it right. Literally i have been getting death threats as well, from both sides of this stupid argument. And considering that this argument has becoming worse and worse, something truly horrific happened
Not only that the argument has gotten worse with him getting death threats from people, the law has been interacting in this situation. I do not fool you people, here's a link about it
This is why I never want to get involved with these things. This argument has become so awful from the amount of people making lies about one another in both sides, posting fake screencaps of things that have been happening about him, cyber bullying, stolen URL, and the trend of people saying about the "exposure of what snuff did to me" trend (which of course people are making fake posts about too), that literally the judiciary system is getting involved. Hunting down every single evidence of people who had made death threats, and fake posts by people that are contributing in the argument.
People can be pissed at someone or dislike them! but when it comes to something like this that literally it is spreader around and people making lies so that they can hunt them down and pound them into the ground until they finally break, is never the choice. I know that the person who had started this felt extremely painful dealing with bottling it up, but when it comes down that you want people to never forget this person and to attack him with words is the definition of being blind by anger. With the amount of people you have of course there will be people who are triggered by the people, and make them do incredibly nasty things like everyone what I had said before.
With fake rape accusation, libel, and the judiciary system stepping in, I fear for the worst. I bring this to you everyone who has been familiar with this to stop with the war that has been going on here in the internet. If this keeps continuing I fear for my safety, and for everyone that will be caught from the law getting involved with everyone's actions. So please, I beg if you to not post things on my page about Snuff, I do not want people to bring this up, and I certainly want this to be put to an end
