My third Portrait Swap. This one was between me and Steve. He is the one who brought you my idea for Illustration Friday Night.

Remember! When participating in a portrait swap via the internet there are a few things you should keep in mind when taking your reference photo.
  1. Use strong directional lighting. It helps me see the planes of your mug. Natural daylight through a window works best. Get away from your computer screen, the blue glare does not count.
  2. Get your whole head in the shot. Do not skim the top of your head or your chin.
  3. Try to take high resolution photos and minimize the blurriness. If this means you have to get back on your meds to get rid of your shakes do it!
  4. Do not send me nudes. Jesus.
