"Where is the line between referencing and copying?"

shoomlah answered:
"I usually think about it like this: would you feel guilty if someone tracked down your source material and called you out on it? If that’s the case, you proooobably want to dilute your reference library a little more."

"You generally want to saturate your brain with your reference, allowing you to really understand the structure and dynamics of the thing you’re drawing – not just mimicking exactly what you’re seeing on the flat picture plane. You’ll get a pretty good drawing of folds/draping fabric if you copy a single reference photo, sure, but I can almost guarantee that working from several similar (but different) photos means that you’ll end up with something far more original – and, bonus, you’ll probably understand more about the reference material in the process."
