View Full Version : Faces (Need critics) sketches

02 February 2005, 09:45 PM
Hi! My first post outside the daily sketch. (Sorry for bad English)

I havenít been drawing for so long, but I already made some progress. I would really appreciate some critics on these pics. I want to learn how to draw realistic faces, so what is god and what is bad?

Made with pen in my sketchbook...a little bit of Photoshop to get the contrast right

The better way to learn draw the human body for me is the comics books.

Really good start. You're seeing things accurately -- many beginners trip up on noses or ears, but yours look very natural. My best advice is for you to practice drawing from life as often as you can. Coffee shops or libraries are good for secretly sketching strangers because they tend to sit still for longer periods of time. Pencil is easier to work with for practicing light and shadow but use pen if you're more comfortable with it.

Other details to focus on (for practice):
folds in clothing
