Yes and no
I definitely need to practice different faces and draw more. I’ve had a break again I’ve started 50 quick female faces after workshops at CA.org and did these while being at work, I see I didn’t post them:
No reference and I drew at the back of some photocopies. Plus digital quickies done at home:
T.b.c., not only with female faces.
Still there are those faces which I hunt and will still be hunting even when I finally draw satisfying portraits: the red head and his family who keep on coming back. And the whole Silmarillion cast which is quite alike in types of beauty I chose for them (almost whole of my latest update). But it doesn’t change the fact I need different face features practice.
Talking of the Silm - requested doodles from Tolk Folk con done at back of Maedhros in flames posters which I gave for rewards - Annatar and APOKALIPSA (crazy acronym):
Todays doodle which supposed to be a quick outfit test for one fictional character. I ended up fixing his face for too long, still the face is off and totally not the one I was looking for. I sketched it looking at Gackt, but soon lost all likeness. He should not have Gackt’s face, but little likeness would not hurt. Anyway outfit seems to be good, only a better pose wanted and he can start adventures in the Forgotten Realms To be painted one day.
