Tonights angry scribble

I started what was supposed to be a portrait but I just couldnt get the features right so at some point I lost my temper and tore it up...yeah passion eh....

A little frustrated I took another piece of paper and scribbled away at it with a 2b pencil and a tortillion

I am seeing a problem ahead for you. You are depending on your smear stick too much. If you use the side of the pencil tip, you will be able to make your shading more accurate. The eyes in your portraits look heavily drawn and don't reveal emotions. Still you are showing improvement. May I suggest that you take a few weeks or a couple of months to work on a portrait. Look deep and take your time. It will give you time to be accurate.

I appreciate en value your advice but currently the thing is I really enjoy these fast skribbles. And so much more than (realistic) precisiondrawing, for me its like the difference between trying to be a good enough copier vs a free impressionist, the latter which I feel much more at home with. I do feel an ongoing improvement, as you suggest, getting more accuracy doing headshapes and developing more feel for facial proportions. As for the blending stump, I'm still finding my way with it as its hard to feel when to apply it to which area and where less or not, currently I'm trying to 'feel' the face I'm drawing instead of just copying it. In effect this means a lot of redundant lines and very fast shading and reshading with the stump but it does however feel as being on the right course, for now that is.

Thanks Just!

@Rrr Why did you take the photo down and why didn't you upload directly to this site? I never got a chance to see it. This is not good for the site as anyone that comes along and looks at this thread won't know what your talking about. Unless you have good reason not to and that's your prerogative, please upload all images to this site.

Wowza! I love it, but then, I'm a sucker for a snow scene.

Hi Dick, I did not take the picture down, I have never taken a linked picture down by the way, not on purpose anyway.

I can see the picture clearly with four different browsers + my smartphone, it is hosted on Flickr.com.

And as to why I dont upload directly to this website the explanation is simple. If I would do that I am no longer in control of my own picture from the moment I cant edit the thread anymore. At all times I like to keep control of my own images.

Here's a new and better picture of the scribble anyway
