Portrait sketches from life 8/25
I get together on occasion with some other artists, and we take turns sitting for each other. Critique more then welcome.
2 weeks ago. 20 minutes each.
Last week. First one 40 mins, last 2 15 mins each.
Tonight. All 20 mins.
There is plenty of obvious mistakes, but with 15-20 minutes there isn't much time to make changes. I screwed up the far eye on the 40. And the values get out of whack more often then not...but it's something I am working on. Thanks for looking.

i love the quick linear style, you get so much detail in it, awesome work!

infinit- thanks, you should see it in person!
joel- thanks man, I was pretty happy with the indication on the glasses on that one too. Been sketching a fair amount of glasses, and really it boils down to the shapes. We don't actually see the glasses, we just see distorted shapes and a couple of lines. Appreciate it bro.
Tonight, my focus was on drawing out of proportion. Actually, I just made a TON of mistakes, and saw them clearly afterwards. The first and the last came out the best, don't know wtf is up with the middle three. All are 20 minutes except the first, 45.
That is supposed to be a sliver of light on the right of his nose, not a misaligned nostril....doesn't read right though.

Thanks man, I'm glad if you can take something away from them. With such a short time limit, it really forces me to get as much as I can out of as little as I can. Sometimes it works, and other times it doesn't. But it works more then before with continued practice. Also, correct and simplified values are HUGE.

this last update is looking really nice, though i'd say that in some of them it seems like the highlight area is slightly too dominant... Then again, this really keys up the dramatic lighting, so maybe that's not such a bad thing. In thisp you rendered the ear very clearly... I'd like to see rendered ears like this on the other heads, maybe even taking the tonal range to the point where it really describes highlights and deep shadows within the ear tissue.
great work again, thanks for the update!

Nice man. . . I really like the second to last in the first post (The guy with the hat on backwards). You seemed to nail his facial structure. Kudos!
