Sketchbook filled

After 2 year and about 2 months, I filled my sketchbook. This is my 2nd one that I’ve filled  If you visited my blog before you have seen a few post of portrait sketches I’ve done using photo reference.  The sketchbook I used is a canson sketchbook with 100 pages, 9×12 inches. I wish I could show you all my sketches so you can see the progress I’ve made with each sketch.  Just show the importance of practicing to get better.  Here are a few sketches that I’ve posted on this blog before along with some news one.  For the last five to eight pages I decided to see if I could sketch a portrait just using ink.

Only you..

I haven’t posted about the new journal that am using for 2020. I started this journal just last month when this COVID-19 began to spread here in the U.S. and forcing us to practice social distancing. Am using Stillman and Birn Epsilon softcover sketchbook. I did this as a journal entry.

I hope with all the madness with this coronavirus everyone is doing well and keeping busy as society has come to a stand still.

We all get excited when starting a new sketchbook, but do you also get excited when you are about to finish one?  Well am excited that  am almost done with my. Just under 20 pages left.  I started this sketchbook 2 years ago, around the end of March. This sketchbook I used for drawing portraits.  All of them are using photo references I find on the net.  I hope one day I can start drawing people from real life.

Every face has it challenges

When drawing faces I’ve notice that there are certain faces that have their challenges. The challenge is the shape of the face.  Some people have like a roundish face shape that sometimes it difficult to get that roundness accurate.  Others have that curve roundness around the cheek around.  When am drawing that roundness area it look like they have their month stuff with food. Other times it the jaw area plus the cheek area that a challenge.
