Portrait course, lesson # 18

24 Jan

We had the same model as in lesson # 5. You see, models are hard to get, so we take what we get.

1. Initial sketch, which was pretty much spot on.

2. After doing the outline in Conté pencil, the shading was done using charcoal.

After 13 lessons I clearly made a huge leap in drawing skill, and still I don’t think I could earn my living from it. This simply means I have to work even harder to get to the next level.

    It looks great! Great classic portrait pose too.
    Impressed by the ease you have with the media.
    You’ve come a long way!

      If you see your work from week to week, you can’t really see much progression, but in 3 months there really is. My instructor was pleased with the result as a sketch. I mentioned I couldn’t earn my living from it, and when he asked what that meant, I replied that I need to work even harder to get better.
