The efforts, time and thoughts one put in a Drawing make it more valuable than a Photograph. Drawings are personalised and hence an excellent option to add charm to your wall or to gift to someone you care-of. Even if you are not a proclaimed drawing/sketching artist, it is possible for you to get a photograph converted into a hand-drawn masterpiece. Platforms like Instapainting.com make drawings from photos, on demand.
Let us first see why it is a better option to make a drawing from a photograph.
ADVANTAGES OF DRAWING FROM A REFERENCE PHOTO
- THE CONVENIENCE AND EASE OF USE.
No doubt, the pictures result in time and money savings if you want to draw figures or portraits. It eliminates the need for the concerned person to model and pose for hours. Further, the artist is not pressured with time to finish the art piece.
- UNCHANGING CONDITIONS.
You might be having that one lucky timed shot, which you wouldn’t have if you were late even by seconds or less. That situation can’t be sustained for long enough so that it can be drawn. A jump in joy, lightning strike lighting up your face etc. can be captured in a photograph but are almost impossible to draw from the live reference.
- UNMOVING SUBJECTS AND REFLECTIONS.
This is very advantageous for artists when drawing reflective surfaces. As the day goes on, the light and its position concerning the reflective object change. Such fluidity of colours and shapes present in the reflective objects makes it hard to “chase” them drawing from life, mainly if you draw in coloured pencil.
Drawing from a photo is ideal in some situations
- Coloured pencil is an exceptionally time-consuming medium to work with. Therefore, drawing from pictures is a better idea if there is even a little bit of time constraint.
- When you are travelling, sketching is not always an option. Picture-taking is an ever feasible option and the photo can always be drawn on canvas later.
- “Drawing children in colour” is the most challenging task as they won’t sit still for long. With a photograph, that isn’t the case.
