Legitimate Stock Resources and Redistribution
This article is my latest journal, but so many people asked me to submit it as a news article, so this is for them. I may well be preaching to the choir, so to speak.

When we make a drawing, painting, or any kind of 2D artwork, we're breaking down a 3D image onto a 2D plane.  Even cartoons are representing a 3D object; it's just been taken further from a realistic painting to its barest structure.  
This is an important thing to keep in mind while practicing drawing because it becomes a habit, especially for those people who like to dr
