“Cheating” Isn’t Wrong

Artists have developed short cuts since the beginning of time, I suspect. Sadly, I knew my drawing skills weren’t up to getting this drawn without taking up too much time. I had 9 days from the time I came up with my composite to paint the dang thing! So I printed the piece the exact size of my paper (16×16). I then used the photo to transfer the image using transfer paper. Lucky for me, I have a printer I could print that large on. I traced the spaces for shadows and highlights on the babe and the cloth. I won’t do that again. It just ended up being too much information. Despited, supposedly being the exact image recreated, I found things wrong as I went along.
