    Good portrait. But is difficult to understand from where comes the light. You should be more categorical about the source of light. However, it is wonderful. Good combined technique.

    I love this, and the subject, which brings me to a question.....I love drawing portraits on my ipad, but I only have pics of family members on there at the moment. So the other day I was in the mood and wanted to try drawing an elderly gentleman and googled "old man" images. I found a subject I liked, did it, and was fairly pleased with it. What is the thought on posting this type of thing? I have no idea who he is or why his pic was there...are there rules about this sort of thing? Obviously I am not selling it or anything, but just curious as to the proper protocol....about posting

    Hi Margi,
    Welcome to the forums

    Btw: you are one of th fewest, who ask questions about the things related to legal side of the posted stuff. Some people say, posting paintings with properly named reference sources (link to original etc.) is OK, since you don't claim any rights on the sources itself. Unfortunately it's not entirely true. It usually don't help you to avoid the copyright issues, if you paint using someone's reference without permission. It's just nice way to post but nothing more. More safe way to use references is to use your own photos or use them only as inspiration. Simply put, it should be enough different to the original, to be considered unique. Saying this I assume, we are talking about using photos as reference and not for tracing ie. Tracing photos even if they are our own, don't take us as artists further. IMHO it has little to nothing to do with art and therefore out of scope of this discussion.

    There was a nice discussion on wetcanvas.com about this subject.

    Thank you for answering. You are correct in assuming no tracing. I did it more as a learning tool, i was getting tired of painting my only grandson(although he is cute) and kids. But felt really odd about posting it. How would i even reference it? Best to keep those off the forums i think
    Again, thanks
