I’m no artist, but guidelines and circles help so much it’s ridiculous. It’s the differance between having a 5 day full body workout routine with an excellent diet and buying the perfect pushup or whatever other as seen on tv bs. One will get make you stand out from the crowd, the other you’ll plateau really fast. Same with guidelines and freehand. My sister and my best friend are really good at drawing and have no problem drawing without any referance pics. That’s because they sketch it out with circles and lines to keep the proportions perfect. I suggest to anyone who wants to really improve their work to invest time in drawing circles. You’ll see an instant improvement in your work. Just my two cents on the matter.
You just have to use body building metaphors don’t you? We get it Dac, you’re a buff dude with awesome hair and great dancing abilities and gets all the ladies.
If we weren’t such good friends, I’d expect you were compensating for something.
