Drawing Unknown Faces, part 36

13 Apr

This was more an exercise in “how to save a drawing that was wrong from the start?” The expression in this young lady’s face was so alien to me, that it was giving me a hard time to get the proportions right. When I understood I had done it all wrong, I didn’t start all over (as I used to do), but instead continued to make a somewhat funny drawing.

I guess if you plan in making caricatures eventually, this is a skill you must have, to make unity in something that has no unity, at least, something that couldn’t exist in reality.

This sketch was loosely based on a photo I found through the Flickr public photo stream.

That is all.
