Free Reference Photos For Expressions

There are many places to get great reference photos, the ones below are some of my favorites.

Remember that you can also take a few selfies or take photos while facing the mirror, to get that specific expression you want to draw!

Other than that, feel free to ask a friend for help. It can be a fun time and helps you get the exact expressions that you want from a different face.

Have fun drawing those expressions, and as always:

Keep on drawing!
