So I started doing some faces from my Facial Expressions book. I hadn't done a photo-real portrait in forever and I also forgot how much I like drawing dark skin. It's fun to draw with those crazy highlights. More contrast. In any case, I learned a valuable lesson not to press gummi eraser into the page so it doesn't roll away, otherwise I'd have rendered mr. crosseyes more. As I began, i was getting dark streaks where the eraser had been stuck. It made him look like he had tire-marks. Decided to do my own proportions for the bottom guy obviously. Just having fun and continuing to draw. May try and transition into cartoon style faces after doing a few more of these. Still searching for some more inspiration in that area.
