Portrait course, lesson # 7

18 Oct

We had the same model as last time. However, I didn’t feel so good, and drawing was a bit of problem. Somehow I muscled through, but I had to stay until the end for this one. Mistakes galore, I’m afraid.

2. Although the model was very punchy, I kept my eye on my drawing.

3. The eyes were too small, so I had to make them bigger.

4. The shape of the eye was all wrong, so I had to adjust that.

5. I had the Cupid’s bow draw the wrong way (to her left, and had to correct that. I also paid attention to the shadows on her left side.

6. After making her face as lifelike as I was able to, it was time to make the hair in the same draw. Here I used the kneaded rubber and charcoal stick alternatively, to give a rough impression of her curly hairdo.
