Sketching Fun


This sketch for Face #9 almost counts as two faces, doesn't it? I was playing around in my sketchbook with line at first, then adding facial features at different angles along with a bit of shading. I might go back in and work on creating layers...or not. It is just a sketch, after all. But spending time practicing sketching individual features looks like something I should do more often.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. I do this sometimes, sketching an eye here and a nose there and all of a sudden it looks as if it should all come together as a single thing. Frankly, I sometimes feel like your lady looks! LOL! Great exercise and practice in doing features.
