Angles from front to 3/4 and profile.
Download for a much larger size.

I didn't do the other side because I figured you could just mirror the image.

this is a wonderful reference for artist. You kept the hair out of the from the face & neck, giving a great view of the muscle & shadow. I appreciate portraits like these. You kept it refine. The turns are also a great touch for artist to see the whole structure of the subject. The lighting is also terrific, not too dramatic where it interferes the subjects form & keeping the expression neutral. This is a great help. It looks classic yet practical. It is extraordinary in its own form. I can see this being in a book or in an art lesson.

Ok, so this is a girl turning her head. Normal, yes? Yes. Easy to draw? NO!!!

Kxhara, you seem to have a finger to the pulse of the artist! Every picture you have is both useful and relevant for artists, both new and experienced.

This picture is a wonderful reference for all. Most stock artists do front, side and three quarters, forgetting the variations in between. Obviously it would take a few hundred pictures to capture every variation, but this is just fantastic.

The lighting is wonderful for a reference, as it is not strong. This allows artists to create their own lighting without trying to see in shadows.

The size of the picture is fantastic, as often shoulders are hard to draw on angles because so much focus goes onto the face.

The little details like having your hair back, the neutral expression on your face and the minimal jewelry/tattoos/makeup/poofy clothes just show that you know what a GOOD reference is!

Congratulations on your collection, and I would love to see the mirror of this image with you slowly turning your head all the way around.

I must say, I'm still learning to draw, so these pictures are REALLY usefull for me. The lighting you used is perfect, and your bone structure is not that hard to draw.
The expression is a little bit too plain, but, again, just right to start drawing portraits. Really nice job!
Still, I would've liked the first pictures a bit closer so there would be more focus on the face. Looking forward for you to make a series like this but with different expressions, more dynamic. You're doing a beautiful job, helpful for all of us who want to draw <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

This photo is one of those an artist truly needs. It's not made to be sexy or emotional or very pretty (not meant as an judegement on your beaty, it's just not topic in this picture).
stock photos are here to help artists, and in this one, special purpose, this is an perfect example in any case - the lightning, the facial expression, the background.

In comparasion to your other work or other stock images in general, of course, this is a very plain example, although I don't think it's boring because of that. When I look at this picture (or this row of photos), I think one can sense this something that makes these pictures as interesting as any other portraits, maybe just because they are special, different with this obvius purpose not to entertain, but to help.

Of course, this might not be your very best shoot. Yes, these pictures here are useful, but they are not that special that I couldn't make them easily at home, and also, they are not particulary stimulating my fantasy or urge to draw, like some of your other works did (for example, sometimes I just looked through your photos to get an idea for an interesting artwork or angle.) So, on the other hand, this picture might be very helpful, but it's also not more than that. I miss a little but the orginality of some of your other stock images.

Either way, thank you very much for this great and helpful stock example, and I am looking forward to your next upload - maybe this time again with an more unusual pose<img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

You're aware there are eighty points to a dollar -- 100 if you're selling via :devart: This is worth much more than 12.5 cents!

Initially I wanted all of my stock to be free. I still do. But it kept getting stolen by shady characters and businesses who were using my face for profit / advertisement that I had never signed up for. I was on a billboard in Egypt! So I changed my stocks to paid content, but I charge teh bare minimum price. The way anyone who is a regular user of DA can beg/borrow 10 points from friends or random users.

In the end, I make enough hobby money from selling my stocks for 10 cents for it to be worth it. They're unlimited content, so it adds up over time. It's nothing to live off of, but it's a decent perk.

(Also, I don't support people doing commissions for 10 points. Custom arts needs to charge at the very least minimum wage. My stuff is different because, as I said, it's unlimited)
SEwing0109's avatar
Not sure that will solve your problem -- your stuff is still much less than the hundreds or thousands of dollars a model would cost -- but I understand your predicament.

Thanks for taking the time to explain!

I like your stock very well, but I think it is better you put each photo into the folder and the version with all together. This would be better for me, now I have to cut them all.. it is more work. 

You do a great job :D
