Face parade continues

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.

  

Face sketch

Lately I’ve been sketching with a pen and no pencil. I actually kinda like it. It’s forcing me to slow down and think about what in doing before just putting down lines.

  

Faces and sketches

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 

  
Not great stuff but it’s needed practice 

Stories

I met a lady who met her second husband as a waitress in a pub in the 70s. He was in the Air Force and would borrow money from her and pay her back in cigarettes. She moved to America with him 40 years ago and has the most lovely accent.  
  

 

Pencil and new ODAD plans

I got a super cool homemade notebook that is filled with watercolor paper. The goal for that is to do a quick journal entry on one side and a quick drawing on the other.  

 
I also got some really soft pencils with the notebook. Which a so fun to draw with.
