Longer drawing for Lesson 5: connecting the eyes. Tried keeping in mind the advice from Matt’s crit of my studies from Lessons 2 & 3, regarding stepping up the values and scaling back the use of white to the brightest highlights only and including more varied tones.
I’m not completely miserable with it, though the more I look at it the more flaws and mistakes I see. (Those lashes are overblown! The irises are too small! Etc.) Taking extra time to render extra values was really helpful, though. As was stepping back and leaving the drawing alone for a bit. 😆
Looking forward to your advice!
