Very nice so far. Great job on the glasses. I have no clue how you got the reflections from the lenses.

thanks Sean and hickory67-
sean-the glasses? just copying shapes my friend :)
Hickory- the skin tone? I use a mix of cross-hatching and dots, I've figured out that most peoples skin is generally spotty.

Hopefully I'll have another prog pic after tonight- its snowing out- perfect drawing weather!

"just copying shapes my friend"

so easy to say, so difficult to do. My mind sees a total unit. And wants to go there. I guess I need more restraint. "Just the shape. Only." I'm gonna write that on the border of my next drawing.
