You got to be a superstar if you got people drawing you drawing. Great job on the hand, it's great to see your progress and your process.

Sonaj--thanks! Yes it is.
Idiot Apathy--the paper from before was too smooth, hard to get a nice even tone.
bhanu--thanks. Yes, they are difficult, but good exercise.
Bjorn--thank you very much. I feel the hand is a lot better as well, and I'm glad someone else thinks so, too.
zhuzhu--wow, that is just gorgeous! Thank you so much for that and for posting it in the thread. I absolutely love it!
Idiot Apathy--I already told you how much I love this. Beautiful study and thank you for posting it.
Dynamike--yeah, Tom did that! Very nice.
Bojee--Yeah, I guess so! Thank you, and thanks for your support.
Ok, so I went back to fix all the mistakes on my first drawing of the head. I kind-of figured out what I was doing with the hand, so I really wanted to go back and make the head better.
I remeasured all of it and redrew probably 80% of it. There were some problems, like the whole top of the head was shifted slightly to one side. That is my fault for not setting my measuring up correctly in the first place.
Up next will be a copy of a Nicolai Fechin drawing, to help me explore different stylistic techniques.

Hello Emily G.,
These are great, and I'm gonna start doing the same pretty soon.
One question though, should I throw away calipers when doing this?
Is that cheating or is it part of a tool like the plumb line?
Great job so far...enjoying every posts.
And psst...try telling Mr. Whitheker to do a dvd with MB. So it'll be cheap..
unlike his contemporaries(but of course invaluable).

IdiotApathy--hey, thanks! Here's pics of the Fechin.
Bard--I'm so excited you are doing one, too! One of the best exercises, I think, because it puts you miles ahead of where you otherwise would be. I used calipers to help me measure while doing these. I also used string a little in the beginning, but the calipers were easier for me.
mosh--great! I'm glad you came over to take a look. Hope you enjoy!
Ok, I started a new drawing this last week. It's a copy of a portrait by Nicolai Fechin.
Here's a pic of the tool I am using. It's a charcoal pencil that I sharpen to a long point.
Here's the initial drawing. The drawing is supposed to be accurate, but it doesn't have to be super accurate like the Bargue drawings. I am doing this copy to learn more about different techniques. I measured the major points, but I also did a lot by eye.
Here I am starting in on the shading, trying to use the side of my pencil as much as possible.
This is what it looked like by the end of the day Friday.

You've picked one of my favorite draughtsmen to copy. Ironically I've never done a close copy of his work, but you've inspired me to try. It's really terrific to be able to follow your progress like this. It's so exciting! Thanks for sharing.
