Face Study

In January I joined "Do 50 figure sketches in 90 days" challenge and fulfilled it! 4500 quick and not so quick sketches are now please me and fill with pride. I can not say I became an expert. But I feel much more confident about the subject, human proportions, muscles and forshortening.

Now it is time to get into face study, so difficult and so interesting subject.

Here I was trying to sketch my mother while she was on the phone with my aunt. About 20 minutes. "At least now it looks like a human face", - was mom's reaction.


  1. It definitely looks like a person--a real one! When you can make her look like a fashion model, she will love it.

  2. Wow, what a challenge, that is a lot of figure sketches! Good luck with the face studies! I love the looseness of this portrait, it is very good!

  3. Human face is so difficult and you managed to do an expressive drawing Irina! I like it very much

  4. Very expressive lines, loved it !
