Portrait Sincerety

a rare attempt at creating a likeness

GSous_Joel_2016 (652x800) (2)


Was not far off the origional proportions despite not tracing, and although this image is slightly doctored –  the orignial drawing’s face is more elongated – which seems to be kind of a quirk of mine

For the moment I am quite content with the result, still have to consult the original face’s owner, though, if this is a drawing of anyone he might know.

the nose needs more work…

Funny, I find with people you know it takes a more active process to distance yourself from the subject you’re drawing, remember you are not hurting anyone, but to focus on proportions and light but also hope to capture some of the personality.

I hope the sincerety of the eyes comes through
