More sketches...

Still plodding along trying to get some sketches done most if not every day. Still trying to focus on people. My "people" sketchbook is nearly full, only a few pages left. I think I'll buy a new book and continue this theme, I still have a long way to go. Having a sketchbook dedicated to this topic has helped encourage me to keep going and been a great easy way to look back and see if there has been any progress.

The first sketch was me trying to focus on getting hair looking more realistic and natural. The top wasn't too bad, I could see lots of shapes and shading in there and hopefully conveyed that. The long parts were more of a challenge. It was just becoming a mess. I need to try and simplify things more.



This was a great ref photo I found on WetCanvas. I had to give it a go. I have been focusing so much on portraits I have been neglecting doing poses. I am feeling more confident in my sketching. Hope that shows.
