That said, I haven't been working on any long-term projects this week, but rather, working on things that I can pick up and put down and revisit at will. Like sketching. Here's a quick ebony pencil sketch of Offspring XY Physicist, from life.
|I have kept these small, to protect your eyes from bleeding.|
Later, I attempted to redraw his portrait, taking a little more time and using more delicacy in the drawing, and make a better, more finished piece.
Problem is, this one doesn't look like him--or his father. Or anyone else I know.
Lesson learned: Draw from Life, Whenever Possible. (Oh. And practice more! LOTS more.)
