It is easier for me to work on large scale, even just journal size, to make a resemblance of the photos and I love doing that. But....
Yesterday a few male small faces were made and thrown in the trash. I wanted to make a better Javier and he, poor thing, turned out worse each time.
I draw for pleasure and I always say to practice and you get better... but at that very moment there was no pleasure, I was just in the mood to say, toss it! lol (I should've taken a picture of the ones I tossed though... just for fun factor).
So, at this point, a few changes have been made in my mind:
1- This guy is not Javier, and I am OK with it.
2- I will keep working on index card size, not caring for the results.
3- Some faces will be larger and not everything has to be "realistic"
With that mental pressure off my head, I will just add:
His nose in real life is crooked to one side and his mouth off center to the other; that is something that makes his face so attractive. Plus his dimples!
Anyway, here is my not-Javier portrait.
....and a video I just uploaded:
Thanks for visiting! I hope your June guys challenge is going fine! Remember, it can be ANY number, we don't have to make one a day or anything :oD But practicing always makes you better at it.
