My first thought about your last three uploads (Medusa, Pegasus and Unicorn) was "this are excellent pieces for a tattoo". Your crisp and clear style make it perfect for a translation into skinart. I realise I'm starting to repeat myself regarding your style, so I'm going to leave this one with a "wow, I wish I could draw faces like that"-comment. So here you go. The expressions you are able to create are so real, I wish people I know had that much truth in their face.


Axlys responds:

Thanks a lot! your words are really appreciated :D I thought these 3 illustrations for t-shirts design.

I'm glad that you like how I can draw the face. I almost always draw faces without references but, before that, I have drawn hundreds of faces and practice with and without references. And sometimes it's necessary use photographs for a very realistic style.
The tip is not only copy the photography it's to understand the volumetry of the face and the proportions. It isn't a easy work :/ Then when you understand this, you will be able to draw faces without references. Maybe it isn't 100% a realistic face but I consider when people copy exactly from a photography lose movement, expression and a little part of their own personality. Drawing manuals or anatomy manuals can be useful for understanding better the volumetry ^^
