Until now, of course.
This week's assignment is to draw three faces at different angles. We have the flexibility to use whatever medium we like. I used ebony pencil and charcoal for this one. The clippings I am drawing are from Vanity Fair. I particularly like the retro feel of the photos.
The homework assignment is relatively flexible as to how you place the faces as well as their sizes. I prefer larger scale profiles because so I am doing three faces over three sheets of paper.
I'm glad to finally be drawing faces. We spent a lot of time drawing weird collections of items including eggs with tons of lighting to work on a shading. It was really tedious and often frustrating. However, now that we are in the thick of it, I can see when it was useful to the exercises before moving to more complete pieces.
Now, I'm going to start my third face. If I love the final product, I'll share it.
