figure drawing Ioana


Hi Matt,

I’m submitting my drawing earlier this week as tomorrow I’m heading for the Bavarian Alps for a long week-end in the mountains.

I usually draw from a photo reference that is as big as my drawing, but this time I wanted to challenge myself, so the drawing is bigger than the photo. Of course this means that the proportions are not so accurate. Thus the first question: Is there a quick way to check proportions when the reference and the drawing are not the same size?

Second question: the head of the figure is about 3 inches tall, so basically I had to draw a small portrait. How can I improve in drawing the model’s face?

Thanks for your critique,
