*These were both done while my subjects were staring at their laptops, hence the gormless expressions...
I tried using the meaured approach from the book but it just seemed too wooden, like it took the joy out of drawing, besides, I think they turned out pretty well without it. I've come a long way from crudely drawn 'symbols' to taking the time to notice the subtle differences in the features such as the line of the nose and curve of the mouth.
Next I'll be looking at light and shadows.
I might walk to Bradgate park today and get some reference images for the ancient ruins project, and hopefully some textures aswell. I've spent the past week reading texture & environment books & drawing so I need a bit of a change.
Viva la sunshine!
