Well tyvm!

As to how… I use reference photos for poses/lighting pretty frequently. N I do a lot of masking stuff onto duplicate body parts and insignia images that I hide behind the background but keep the masked item in the foreground. And when it comes to using the gradient backgrounds for shading/shadows/highlights/etc. I use the (often later hidden) lines of the pieces I’m putting them over on as a guide and/or the lighting of reference photos as a guide. And I layer them and mess with their opacity until it looks right.

N yes, some patience is involved with that but also like… I rarely do a piece in one sitting. I’ll work on it here n there over the course of a week or so usually because yeah… not THAT patient lol.
