It's Spring Break so I'm all pencils forward on some commission work. Its funny, as much as I go and try to do a portrait from a strictly aesthetic point of view, ignoring for the moment anatomy, just capturing a face, it never quite works out. When I step back and measure, take anatomy drawings out for reference .... it all comes together. Lines and angles and proportions suddenly fall into place.
The proportions right now are off but it's getting closer. The above drawing is the start of the final drawing.
