Drawing Unknown Faces, part 88

28 Apr

This toddler girl was playing with her blackboard. It is a nice relaxed pose in the face.

This profile was an interesting subject because of the lighting and the man not taking himself too seriously.

The outline of the head has some mistakes, which I more or less “fuddled away” by consequently keeping proportions in mind. What that is, you say? Well the head is too deep, the face is too small in relation too the mass of the skull.

That is all.

This face was really bugging me. I had to redraw several parts of it repeatedly. And in the end, there was little resemblance with the reference photo. Ah well, it was fun drawing anyway.

I’m also slowly getting the hang of drawing hair into locks. I’m not entirely sure how to do this, though.

That is all.

This was again a naive treatment of a portrait of a woman. No fancy measuring methods were used, just eyeballing it.

This sketch clearly shows I have little experience in drawing the human figure. Still it clearly shows what is happening here.

I especially liked the Girl Power on the bat.

This was a runner wearing an orange wig, who was already pretty tired at the point his photo was taken (presumably when passing the finish line).

The sketch is drawn with a fine liner. The beautiful part is that you can’t correct your drawing and you need to be more concentrated. I think I succeeded in portraying this runner accurately in roughly 20 minutes.

That is all.

I had some problems with this woman’s face. It wasn’t that she’s drawn wrong, but I didn’t see how perspective worked on her face. So while I couldn’t “get it right”, because it was already right, I left it as it was.
