Hauxe's sketches and doodles
Just a daydreamer trying to put some things on paper.
I hope you enjoy looking through my little thread.
Any feedback is very much appreciated

About 6 hours.

Here's a quick black and white sketch- the culmination of a sleepless night thinking about new york city.
About an hour and a half.
I know her nose is god awful, but I'm tired to working on it. I like to think of it as a botched nose job.

welcome to ca!!
The first thing I'd like to offer is a little trick -- do you use photoshop perhaps? If you use the line tool (on a new layer) from one center of the pupil to the other, there will be a parallel line that matches from the tips of the nose and the corners of the mouth. Also the eyelids, etc, to help align them symmetrically. right now everything on your faces is skewed and needs adjustment to be correct -- this is OK -- you know what? TONS of people do this, but most of us just know how to fix it
If you're interested in the anatomy of the face (and who isn't?) I suggest picking up some Bridgman and Vanderpoel books from Amazon.com or your local bookstore and do some pencil studies. Then scan them or snap pics and post them here for us to see!
Very nice start!

A WIP for Kyrie.
Eerin- the monster clouds are near and dear to my heart. Thanks
Nerahla- I'll be uploading a bunch of life studies fairly soon. Sadly, I hate to admit it, but the last weeks of summer are doing a fairly good job of luring me away from practice. I'll have to slap myself into shape soon though!

Some excerpts from my sketchbook. More to come soon. Most from life- keeping Loomis in mind. Sketching people in cafes can get kind of awkward. More than once I've had someone realize I'm staring at them, so they quickly finish their coffee and leave. Gah.
Lateman- Thanks for the encouragement
Garden- Bette Davis really? I'm really afraid that most of my portraits have blank expressions. So I'm trying harder to study facial muscles and expressions to help give my sketches some more personality.
