Drawing Unknown Faces, part 40

13 Apr

One thing I keep forgetting is that after a few minutes of using a wood-encased pencil, you need to sharpen its point. The lines slowly grow wider and fuzzier, and suddenly, when you need to, you can’t draw the finer details anymore.

That was the problem I had with this toddler girl. Besides that, I had drawn her eyes too small. After correcting that, the point had become to blunt. Sharpening was the best solution for that.

The sketch is based on a photo I grabbed from the Flickr public photo stream.

That is all.
