Drawing Unknown Faces, part 169

28 May

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.

I’m starting to draw more than I put online. It means I’m a bit pickier about what I publish than I used to. Also, I’m doing so-called “junk drawing” where I just draw for the sake of drawing.

Here’s a drawing I had a bit of problems with, and I still haven’t solved those problems.

I just couldn’t get the perspective right. It’s just too subtle for my current drawing skills. I’m also guessing that drawing from photos is preventing me to grow artistically. When I look at people in real life and try to draw them in my mind’s eye, I see so much more than in a photo. It’s like by taking a photo some of the information is lost. On the other hand, I don’t feel confident enough to draw in public.

That is all.
