Practicing some different perspective. It’s fun to be loose and see what happens.
More ink portraits. Usually I strart a drawing with the outline of the head and build from there but with these I’ve been drawing from the largest flat plane on the face. Usually this is the cheek and side of the face that is facing the viewer. I actually feel like this is having better results in building a correct perspective.
Drawing the face in perspective is incredibly easy to get wrong and incredibly hard to get right. Incorrect perspective on the face might be the biggest mistake I see young artists making. It’s a mistake that I often make myself and it drives me up the wall.
Here’s some pen sketches from recent practice
If you’re a fan of the Culturezoo podcast, One Drawing a Day, or just like cool t-shirts in general, you should head over to our brand, spankin’ new Threadless store. We’ve got three hand-drawn, custom designs already available.
All proceeds go to art supplies, hosting costs, and craft beer to keep our windpipes clear for recording Culturezoo.
