We had the same model as last time, and I made sure I was on time and had a good spot close to the model and from the front (more or less). Often I’m late and have to make do with a spot in the back, at an angle, and squinting a lot (yeah, I need glasses).
The initial sketch, to get the features at the correct positions and size. The instructor was more sure about this intermediate step than I was. And indeed, I found a couple of ones the instructor hadn’t noticed at a quick glance (look at the “manly” neck).
