Face it....and try again

 

 


Not been happy with my faces, the eyes have proved difficult to me, they always seem to be drooping, not open and clear if you know what I mean. So this morning I sat and sketched out this face and then just colored it with my c'arandach pencils. Little pleased with the result, but more practise definitely needed.....

The reason you think the eyes are dropping is because you are putting too much curve to the bottom line...look in the mirror and see how your own eyes look and you will see what I mean...I think you are doing a great job with the shading, keep up the great work...I know that it is really frustrating, but you are working in the right direction...Try some self portrait drawings...they don't have to be perfect...if is just like your other art...it just takes time and practice...Luv Mum

I like this face the best Dawn. I am not much of an artist with pencil and paint but I admire yours! I try and am learning. Hope we can meet when you return???

I think she is fun, and a bit idealic! Maybe a little flat but that's ok too, it all depends on what you are going for. Often I go for flat so flat is OK! Sanna
