I definitely like realism! I haven't been very active, but I like sketching nudes myself :)

This is a sketch of musician Trent Reznor I drew years ago and found recently

Was on my way home last week... saw this and had to stop. Some of my favorite images come on the spur of the moment, I guess that's why I always carry a camera with me.

I'm new to this group and site... will post some images soon. I've been a professional photographer for 30 years now... mostly commercial and advertising by trade, but enjoy shooting nature & landscapes for myself.

I am a transman and I make webcomics featuring the bodyparts I don't have anymore. During A-week I'm posting a new atheist comic every day in English!

That's a bit tricky.


There are three suggestions I can make, though it's difficult without seeing first hand what you have available.


i) Do the best you can in-camera and then compensate with software. 


ii) Bring in more light.  The most basic set up for copy board lighting is to have two lights aimed at 45º to the canvas.  You can do it with relatively inexpensive lights along these lines, or you could jury rig a similar set up for less money with items from the hardware store.  Lights have a bit of a hot spot in the centre (unless they are well diffused).  That hot spot need to be aimed just past the centre of the image.  If the lights are too harsh, move them back or diffuse them.


iii)  If the window is unobstructed, reasonably positioned, and gets enough light for you to get a reasonable exposure,  you could try angling the work you want to reproduce roughly 45º to the window, and use a large piece of white card stock on the other side of the image to bounce some light back onto it.


Regardless of the option you use, setting your white balance correctly before you shoot is an important first step.


There are also services that do reproductions.  Sometimes there's people doing it real cheap, but still do an okay job (just trying to scrape a little extra cash on the side, I guess).


The only other thing I can think of off the top of my head is a scanner, but if your works are larger than a typical scanner bed, that might not be economical.

@Kris -- mixed media (collage, acrylic, graphite, charcoal, colored pencil, ink on canvas, paper or board).  I have a Sony cybershot.  The light is big problem as my "studio" is also my laundry room so I have one small window that lets in natural light and some less than ideal lighting in the room.

What's the medium, and what do you have in terms of camera and available light?
