    Filling in the face?

    I've always had a real problem filing in the face of portraits or models I try to do. I usually do absolutely fine sketching down the figure until that point. I know all the guidelines and ratios for the face, but it just never clicks and is a real set back and "downer" as far as drawing goes. Does anyone have any advice?

    And will that newer Massive Black Portraits Volume 1 - Caucasian Female help me with this?

    Is your trouble with drawing faces or seeing faces?

    I'm not sure what you mean by seeing.

    Oh, well in that case I just have trouble drawing them. I can do it, but it takes a LOAD of time and I'm rarely happy with the results.

    Good, then you've answered your own question. It's going to take time, and you're usually not going to be happy with the results at first. Our brains are extremely fine-tuned for face recognition, and there's simply less room for error with faces than for almost any other subject. You've just got to put in the time training.
