    Your head studies are getting better and better. I'm wondering how you're finding drawing with the pen held between the palm and thumb as compared with a typical tripod grip. The teachers I've been working with have suggested the palm/thumb grip so as to use the whole arm but I must admit after growing so used to the typical three finger position it's hard not to fall back to it.

    Yea, same, someone recommended just making marks and lines on pages first, then working very large, it does seem to have helped, but it is still umcomfy, The first sketch of Yvonne De Carl was done with thumb and palm, second with tripod then a slight do over with thumb and palm, it seems very difficult to keep your line steady and cop out by using tripod for eyes and lips.

    Excellent head studies. I wish I could get to grips with the human head as quickly as you seem to be... its so hard to break old habits.

    Its good that you are trying different expressions too. I really like the Hepburn overlay... good idea!

    No crits, keep up the great work!

    Easel arrived.
    This is a study without ref to try bring the planes and anatomy together abit.
    Think the perspective might be way out, eyes flat the ball with axis is really difficult.
    Can i get a crit/tips on this plz.

    Nice style Looking forward to some finnished drawings! You might be doing this on purpose, but on many of your head sketches the jaw and chin is really narrow.
