This is an improvement over the last one, thankfully. As a likeness it’s not even close, but at least theproportions are something like near. It could be a good drawing of somebody else who doesn’t look like me.
I’m still sticking with line only drawing, which I intend to do until I’m doing better drawings with it. Ifand when I get to that point I’ll start working with tone again, but not until.
This drawing took about four or five hours I think. In a way it’s quite scary that this is the closest I canget after working on it for that long. I obviously still need a lot more eye training.
