For this exercise, we were asked to make some studies of facial features.
I worked in my sketchbook with a 6B pencil, to sketch the eyes, lips, ears and noses. I used photo for reference.
I quite enjoyed this exercise, and took my time over it. I worked from photos, and it was interesting working in monochrome from colour references! I used a 6B pencil, as I like dark, heavy sketches.
I think the sketches represent the features accurately, even if they are not photo realistic. They are my interpretations.
I enjoyed drawing the eyes the most, and found the ears quite demanding, as the shapes are confusing to me.
