Hurray it's Friday! That means it's
Friday Face Off!
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.
Nicole 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.
The first feature is the beautiful
The next featured artist is;

Today I have some fish faces for you and a random eye....Have a happy day, Valerie
Happy weekend xx
Beautiful faces. And sad about your Sister.
I think your faces are terrific! But, I suppose that, like all things in life, it's good to try to improve.
Beautiful face, as always and it’s lovely she looks like your sister. Have a wonderful weekend! I want so badly to join in the challenge but I’m still limiting screen time, I’m trying to visit everyone though which is so much joy for me. Thank you for hosting face off Friday! ❤️👍
...the eyes have it.
I loved this week's face, Nicole. I enjoyed that you started with the eyes. They are expressive and have a bit of laugh lines around them where lines usually show first. Personally, I think this turned out great.
I think those Youtube videos have already paid off. Wow, I like this face a lot. Too bad the instructor doesn't do a whole lot of variety, but maybe the features she uses are her best ones. Have a great Friday. Hugs-Erika
The face you drew is lovely! And I like Christine's art too, especially the horse!
Lovely face drawing Nicole. Thanks for featuring me. And Tracey is so talented.
Thanks for sharing this, your face looks lovely. I have never been great at drawing. Would you share the link to the YouTube classes?
Oh Nicole, this portrait is beautiful! You are getting better and better all the time with drawing faces. Your sister might have been guiding your hand. It’s a nice thought, I think.
Hi Nicole! Thank you for your kind comments.
Did you get my yesterday's comment I sent. There was link to Google's advices for commenting. They changed some way rules so that ALL COOKIES (THIRD PARTS as well) must be accepted, and update browsers (Chrome, and Safari). This has worked me and many others who had the problem. Google says that if there are other browsers in question, it should to find out how they recommend to do.
I suppose you have Firefox, and I don't know about it more.
Hope you can resolve the problem.
Have a joyful weekend xx
Your sister's image must always be with you in your heart. I think I see how that would feel. Your drawing is beautiful

That is one of the things I really like about your faces, they always have something unique to show/say.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
Boa tarde Nicole. Seus desenhos são maravilhosas. Bom início de semana.
Is this the first sketch where you penciled eyelashes on your subject? You did a nice job. Your drawings are quite realistic. I need to vest more time into illustrating facial details. Thanks for sharing!
Hi Cathy Kennedy. No, I put eyelashes on other portraits. There are two thoughts on this. People that look at portraits fill in spaces. Like eye lashes. Or the artists can fill in spaces. Does that make sense?
Nicole-I am stunned. Your drawing has gone light years ahead. I remember a few years ago you were wanting to do faces-you were good then-but now you are fantastic. I hope you can find someone to sit for you-I think you'd like drawing from life too.
Ohhh Debra, thank you so much. Yes, remember how my first faces were. I should do a comparison. Hee hee hee.
I like your faces.
Hope you had a good weekend.
All the best Jan
Gorgeous face, Nicole!
I think your drawing talent is wonderful Nicole, and what a lovely drawing of your sister. ♥
