Lighting Angle Ref 1 by Melyssah6-Stock Lighting Angle Ref 1 by Melyssah6-Stock
Um. Not sure on the category.
Thought it would be useful to have lighting references (plan on uploading more at different angles) but my camera does a bit of its own correcting so the lighting may not always look consistent.

Got the styrofoam head at Hobby Lobby :D my friends named him Peaches STEFFi... >.> he's kind of damaged, but the other options I had were worse. So instead of getting the one with a missing nose, I opted for the scarred face.

More Lighting Angles:
Angle 1: You are viewing it!
Angle 2: [link]
Angle 3: [link]
Angle 4: [link]
Angle 5: [link]
Angle 6:
Angle 7:
Angle 8:

-You can use the image in any way you want, a portion of it or the whole thing, it doesn't matter to me.
-Credit me
-As long as you credit me, you can make prints of your artwork that uses my stock, or post to other sites (let me know via comment or note though please so I know what site)
-Don't use for hateful purposes
-You don't have to tell me before you use it, but link me when you are done (I will fave your deviation!)
-Faves are obviously not required, but super appreciated
-If you use as a reference only for things like pose or lighting (in other words, you aren't trying to make your artwork look like my photo) then you do not have to credit me, but I still want to see your artwork when you're done! If you are using it as a reference and are trying to make it look like my photo, then I still expect credit

Great reference, it helped me recently with a tiny problem that I encountered while working on my drawing (not completed yet).

Excuse me, but does it really count as stealing? I just discovered that blog today and so far have found it incredibly helpful, and I would not have found this extremely helpful image without it. The blog does not claim they own it at all, and the admins are currently working on sourcing everything.

Sorry to butt in, and I hope I don't sound rude or anything (I've known about your stock for a long time and enjoyed it a lot, though I've never gotten around to using it) but that blog has already helped me in the couple of hours I've known about it and I would really like for it to stay up.

The blog's owners only started sourcing their posts after an effort of pressure (like this) from original artists. Anything reposted, even saying "credit not mine" is stealing under federal law. They were also being incredibly rude to the artists they were taking their posts from.

And again, my stock should not be on their blog at all, sourced or not. They did not read my rules. I doubt they read anyone's rules, and they just repost everythign willy-nilly. That is not the correct attitude to have for a blog with thousands of followers. Why should they gain attention and notoriety without producing or sourcing any of their resources? The bare minimum they could do is give credit, and until pressured they refused to do even that.

Rude, immature, lazy. Bad blogging at work.

Hobby Lobby or Amazon are two places I know of....Michael's /might/ have them, but I'm not 100% sure. Hobby Lobby will have cheaper ones than Amazon (plus you can print off a 40% off coupon and use that with it!)

You might be interested in this [link] (done by Solinni) They were the inspiration for this set, I really like what she did with it but I wanted to see what a head would look like with a bunch of different lighting angles :)

The scars are actually a bit helpful in this case, because I'm sure a lot of people want to know how to shade those.

This is true! And fortunately it's not as if they are so huge that they completely detract from the overall shading, so it's not that big of a deal to me
