Belt = dead snake

Here's a tip for all you illustrators out there: need to draw a dead snake? A belt makes a great stand-in for your photo reference needs!

So pro!


  1. Yep, it's amazing how many items in this household do double-duty as props for photo references. I have often been surprised by parents with an array of bizarre things in my arms, ready to take reference shots. =P

  2. Kelly, can you explain your process? Are you just scanning your photos in and then using photoshop to "paint" them? Or do you ever really paint...if so what medium? thank you. :-)

    1. No, I'm just using the photos as references to look at, not to trace over. And yes, I do "really paint," digitally with a Wacom tablet.


Thanks for leaving a comment! I read each and every one!
