Here is my 29 Faces Challenge sketch for yesterday. I tried to use a light hand with shading like I had seen a lot of people doing on Instagram. Turns out I don't really care for it. I personally like shading.
I am very pleased the proportions look a lot better in this one than the last. It's simply because I used a reference photo this time. How do they make such a difference? It's the same effort coming out of your hands as without one.
Can you guess who the sketch is of? My husband couldn't. Oops.
Here is a hint...
I have to keep practicing if I want to get better right? This one I think I'll keep as just graphite since it's the full page. Well, at least for now. I may end up putting some color on it later.
Have you tried sketching portraits of celebrities? How did it turn out?
