Create a post, feature a face and then link up with me. Any kind of face in any medium. I can't wait to see what you have to share.
For me, I have been drawing. I have also been taking some you tube classes on drawing faces. I have come to the place where it is time to be better at drawing. I look at my faces and say to myself, that could be better, this needs to be changed, how do I do this or that. The problem I am having with the teacher is that all of her faces look the same, because she uses the same features for all of them. I have made it a point in my portrait art to NOT do that. So I am taking some detailing techniques from her and adding my own style. I did show last week that I start my faces differently each time. I did start with the eyes on this one.
When I finished this I realized this looks very much like my Sister. She passed quite a few years ago, but I think she would like this.
Last week I totally forgot to feature and Friday Face Off player so this week I will feature 2.
