Tracing Photographs

...it's allowed! If you took the photographs yourself. Which I did. Ha.
I'm not great at drawing humans, let's face it. Unless you want it done in my particular cartoony way, which isn't always the ticket... 
So at the moment I am having fun tracing photographs of my friends. It's not that easy - the digital brushes are laggy, and, well, traced photographs have a way of looking not that great. And detail is getting lost whenever I zoom in too closely.
But I think I'll work out something useful, and maybe even learning something about light and shadow and anatomy and all that.

These were painted using brushes from Stumpy Pencil.
