2012/12 picture refs

- trying to reduce spendings (time + $$) mean practices at home.
- eyes are getting blurring for squinting too much at the computer screen

- ball-point pen photo/book reffed eyescream.com and sargent books from library
- ball-point's really detailed, hard to transfer the same effects onto charcoal pencils
- eyescream has lots of nice pictures of clothings. 

- conte/wolff's carbon/charcoal pencil using google photo search for "face". many are so called 'bad' photo refs with very little structure (apparently asian girls like to look featureless/noseless and completely blanched and eternally surprised for all the photos), they are a challenge. could try to hunt down more structurally informative photos for better/consistent learning.
- alternating between the 3 pencils made the conte feel alot smoother after going through one rotation.
- keeping it loose is a nice feeling with conte (second drawing with single head on page, looks bad, but felt good).
- realized the cross-contour shadings probably need to overlap to avoid looking like wooden/zebra type things. (they have to overlap at least a little e.g. radially cross-contouring as oppose to parallel/piping.
