image First attempt at sketching

20140126-194935.jpg

Well after a weekend of children’s parties I decided to do something for me. I finally picked up a pencil and started sketching. I looked through my photo album and chose a picture of one of my boys standing in the rain. I thought the umbrella was a nice feature. So after sketching roughly in pencil, I went over the picture in pen. You can see from the photo it doesn’t look too bad. But I haven’t put ink on the face yet because I can’t do faces! Maybe I should have picked a picture with them facing to the side (or backwards even!). But now I’m a little stuck… Do I just go for it? Has anyone got any suggestions for sketching a face? Any help would be appreciated!

  1. I have no idea how to sketch faces but this is really brilliant and very arty with the face as it is so I’d just leave it! What a handsome lil boy!
