I had a good start on this during the Zoom class, and thought I should do some more on it. I watched all of the Forest extended videos to get some more pointers. Some good info in there. Thank you. One thing I noticed was that you used a lot more white chalk than I thought you would. Using the fan brush to lighten and smooth the white was something I had not noticed before. Also you showed how to add more chalk after the fan brushing. That was a big help. (I hope I remember this.)
In general, I am happy with the way it turned out. I was able to get a better rendering of the lips after seeing the Forest Videos. However, I had to do several resizing of the mouth and teeth. I am still having issue with the nose, but it is getting better. I am doing better on the horizontal and vertical alignment of things. In fact, I am starting to see people on the street in vertical and horizontal grid lines.
I continue the battle with the matching shapes, but I think I am getting a little better. Thank you for all of your really great teaching. Don’ t blow yourself up this weekend with the 4th of July festivities.
