Drawing Unknown Faces, part 172

31 May

This smiling young girl was my next drawing in the series, after a hiatus of a few days. I really want to draw more freely, only using the photo as a reference. Alas, I’m not there yet.

Some days are not so good

I was trying some Preston Blair drawings, in order to get into cartoon drawing. In the beginning of the book, he has some examples of dogs, cats, mice, etc. After trying some of those, I so felt like an old man.

Mister Blair makes it seem so easy, but it really is hard to copy his drawings, even with the explanation how to do it.

That is all.

I thought I was going to see some outdoor basketball, but no one was present, so I guess this evening there were no games to be played. To do something, I drew some of the landscape on the spot.

Another smiling woman to make your day more pleasant. It made mine great.

The subject of this sketch was smile. You can clearly see those corners of the mouths pointing to the sky in these women.

I searched Flickr with zFlick on the search terms “rough” and “tough” and got these photos amongst other photos, which I used to create sketches.

I did these three sketches on the same piece of paper in an hour, scanned the page and cropped each sketch as a separate image, saved into a new file on my Mac.

That is all.

I’ve taken the previous sketch and added color to it.
