29 FACES DAY 14

Hi Everyone!

Well here she is. An old lady with wrinkles. OMG!!! This was really difficult. I will have to do some more practicing on wrinkles.  It is the shading and direction that messes me up. However, I did have a photo of a woman with a million lines and wrinkles on her face. LOL Don't criticize me to harshly, but if you have any suggestions will take them. Hmm maybe less is more?
Thanks Martha from Ayala Arts for hosting 29 Faces.

  1. you did a good job with her :) wrinkles are more about soft shading then hard lines, they can be very tricky to draw because you eye think lines, but the best way is just with shading. I think you did a good job with them tho, less can be more but some just have a lot of wrinkles and a drawing wouldn't look like them with the wrinkles. I find it can help to practice with charcoal, messy but helps create the shading for wrinkles very well ):

  2. N: good work on the elder lady.......she looks authentic and that is what matters with us wrinkled up old husks. LOL. I always look at the ladies with just tons of wrinkles and wonder why they didn't at least dip into the Crisco for their faces. Donna
