After many 2-minutes sketches of a mirror image…

6 Dec

This is 2-minutes sketch number 48 of today. The sketches became increasingly more detailed, while the time to draw did not change. That can only mean that I’m getting better at it.

Me 9.0

The most productive method seems to be to draw the general outline of the head (hair included), and then draw the features, depending on the position of the ears.

Once I have a consistent look in all sketches, I will decrease the time to draw, to make it even harder.

The exercise forces you to be very exact in your observations, train your visual memory, and make you see yourself in another way than the casual look in a mirror to check if you’re decent enough to be in public.

That is all.
