Lesson: Drawing Accurate Shadow Shapes

Well, I said today was gonna be the first post and I’m a man of my word so prepare for that. After I took some cues from Matt I decided to really knuckle down and work on something that wasn’t just a sketch. I was hoping to really learn how to take my time, observe, measure and add shape through tone. Watching the video first and then following along with it afterwards put things into perspective and I feel like I learned a couple things. I was really struggling with getting the shadow around the eyes but I think I’ll just really need to go over the lesson again but any critiques are welcome here. I’m also adding this to the critique gallery so really let me have it!
