Seeing shadow shapes – Sandrine


Hi Matt,

This exercise was quite enjoyable! I got a bit overwhelmed with the hair, though. It happens when I can’t exactly figure out volumes out of pictures: volumes in the shade, and/or how the hairstyle is sculpted, especially when bits are missing. It’s as if I absolutely need to make sense of volumes, and my first attempts are usually very inaccurate, I end up doing a lot of erasing and redrawing. Is there a specific exercise that could help me with that?

Another issue is that I didn’t take a break early enough (I heard your advice to do so in the video, but I felt in the zone!). When I finally did after one hour, I was shocked to see that the orientation of the face was quite different from the original, and it was too late to modify it as much as I would have wanted. So lesson learnt, I’ll take more breaks from now on!

Thanks in advance for your comments.
