I tried another portrait based of a real photo with some dynamic shading. After the success I feel I had on Friday, I decided to make another attempt. This time I tried working at angle slightly to the side. I also wanted to draw a man's face. I don't think this one turned out quite as good as the last drawing I did, but I am happy with the way it turned out. As I begin shading these sketches I start to get nervous...afraid I am really going to mess something up. Anyway let me know what you think!
Oh yeah, here's the link for the reference.
Before I forget here are some Loomis heads I worked on today as well. Wish I hadn't tried to add shading to the one, can't stand it.
