Portrait study – Filip


Hi Matt!
I haven’t been able to go through the “features of the face” course, but I’m planning to start today.

I’ve realized I draw my imaginative faces way to cartoony, and they are all squished. In the beginning I was very gestural with drawing the shapes of the eye sockets, as well as the value change between the cheek and rest of the jaw. I tried to polish the drawing a bit this morning but my hand was very stiff and it was hard to shade. I’m not happy with the drawing, it’s very messy and I see that the jaw should be tilted a bit more.

I’m not sure if I can save pictures from instagram, so I took a screenshot and it will probably be pixelated. Here is the reference photo: https://www.instagram.com/p/CTKOCVzJMIq/
