Choose a photo, did the sketch… :roll_eyes: it’s different from the photo… I’m kinda afraid to continue it… I should restart maybe… :thinking: anyway, I don’t have time now and tomorrow I won’t be home all day… :sweat_smile:

On a side note… I’m enjoying practicing so much… and till some years ago I wasn’t able to sketch by free hand like that… so… @coon was absolutely right saying the more you practice,the easier is to drawing… :smile: :blush: :muscle:


Your sketch is kinda hard to see on this picture

Well, the pencil is really “light”… :sweat_smile: I add much blackish in the process usually… :monkey: :grimacing:


Ah my bad :sweat_smile: will you continue it? I don’t think I’ve seen you draw many human faces

Yes! But tomorrow I can’t… so maybe on wednesday… :muscle:
Also I have never done a portrait! So you couldn’t see any face from me… :sweat_smile: I started from the hair, because I followed Coon lessons and that’s where she stopped… but I’d like to go on… :muscle: :blush:


So it’s a first! Then it’s all the more exciting :smiley: Looking forward to it

Not sure if Photoshop counts as a drawing tool lol, but here are some album cover ideas for a totally real band lol :joy:


Some boring 30 min training at work today))


Amazing! :heart_eyes:


Currently In the process of creating shirts for my family. I’m still having troubles trying to find ways to cope with it, but my Dad was diagnosed with blood cancer. After two months of not knowing what was wrong we finally now know. :cold_sweat:
This is the only way I can think of helping besides being there for them and trying to stay positive.
I’ll spare you the long story, but art & music have been my ways to cope with this, and have been helping me get through each day.


Sorry to read that about your Dad. Leukaemia? What the doctors say?

We will find out what type tomorrow it sounds like, they are thinking it’s not Leukemia so will be hoping for something less serious (if thats even possible with cancer)

Tried the half-portrait… :grimacing:

Here’s the magazine pic I chose :point_down:

Here’s the sketch that I redid from beginning :point_down:

Here’s what I did till now… don’t know if I have to add more black for the shadows and also white for the highlights… :see_no_evil: :see_no_evil:

@jabinquaken I’d like to have some advice when you have time, please :no_mouth:

EDIT: Jab advice would be: :man_facepalming: :scream: you have to redo from beginning!
