Portrait WIP

Finally started a portrait. This is my granddaughter making a funny face. It needs a lot of work.

I don't know how hard I should be so I will hold back. First to catch expression you must get the turn and tilt of the head nearly perfect. Second you must show life in the eyes. I personally think that you should start over until you get those right.

I think your right but I'm going to try to adjust this. It's really about learning and practicing. We'll see, I may take your advice. Thanks and don't worry about being to hard on me. I'm a beginner that want's all the help I can get.

Try using a ruler and protractor to mark distance and angles between points.

It's not that don't care to get it right, I want to develop my eye. Having said that, I have a smartphone projector in the mail for when it absolutely has to be perfect.

Iknow what you mean. I used to draw completely by eye. But now that I am older, I find it too much trouble. There are keypoints that makes it work more efficient and I need efficiency. However, I believe that there is a big difference between comparing distance and angles and tracing.

You're right there sure is a big difference between tracing and using rulers and calipers. But I figured if I'm going to use a tool to get the work done, might as well be something easy.
