    BW portraits

    Hello everyone!

    So thrilled to be here, wow...
    Anyway, here's where I am right now on my way to decent portrait drawings.

    These sketches are usually from reference made on A6, marker, 15-20 min.
    Critics are very, very much appreciated.

    Thank you for your time and attention.

    I am really feelin' your style with the geometric and linear elements explicitly used to define the form in your portraits. One thing I noticed is a problem I have and that is that the eyes don't always match. That is to say in some of your portraits one eye is larger than the other. Also in your three quarter views, the side farthest is off as if it were drawn from a different angle. I have a similar problem. I like the hundred eyes exercise. I may borrow that.

    Laylo-Dred thank you for visiting and remarks. Yes, this symmetry is tough to get right.. As for the exercise - found it here. Used flickr for ref, keywords: eye macro.
