I've started trying to teach myself some proper sketching, and going to a drawing class and all...hopefully, people can give me some tips and corrections!
quick sketch of a girl at the drawing class, done with my left hand (I'm right-handed). I find it hard to co-ordinate the pencil, but oddly, it helps me focus.
Self portrait, done using a mirror. Sadly, I actually do look that bemused. My glasses have been wonky ever since someone sat on them, but not THIS wonky...whoops.
One thing I know I have to work on is tone, I seem to be a bit timid with the darks/shadows, so particular thoughts on that would be super-fabulous. Ta!
