I ran out of Patience……why? Well, it has to do with the H.A.I.R !!
I think the next “Drawing” Book I purchase should be “Drawing Hair for Dummies” or something like that! I could not for the life of me, replicate the curly hair on the original picture!! I think too linear!!! Yep, straight lines et al!
I don’t know if others do this, but I have taken to the habit of outlining my sketches with my finest Micron Pen (.005). I like the pop it gives and I think with time, it may help keep the graphite in place…don’t know if it will actually work, though.
Because I learn by trial and error (yep, just like 99% of the rest of the human race). These are the fault points in this sketch:
- I seem to have trouble making the head tilt……I only seem to be able to draw a North-South head.
- The chin area should be a bit thicker.
- The nose is too long.
- The Hair…..well, that’s an OBVIOUS one!
- ________ fill in the blank!
Since this is for my Sketchbook Project, it’ll be gone in 6 weeks. Good thing we have digital cameras, and I can keep my own copy of the sketch for sentimental reasons. I only have room for one or two more drawings in the sketchbook. Wow!! I just may have this thing done before Christmas.
Thanks for your comments and if ANYONE has any hair drawing suggestions or references, I’d love to hear them.
