Portrait class

First of all thank you to everyone who visited my blog and gave your lovely comments on my doll. Really appreciate it very much. This is what I did today. We were asked to sketch the portrait of the head with large scale proportions. I was in half a mind to show you this. My sketches tend to go off the sketching pad/paper for some reason lol! I guess it is because I have always drawn in small proportions so when drawing large everything goes out of scale. So that is why half the head has disappeared from the paper lol! There are several points I notice are not right in this sketch but I am begining to learn a lot about sketching with charcoal. That little thing sticking out next to the neck is not an extra appendage. It was something the teacher was trying to explain to me.

He looks great Shashi! He makes me think of a 1950s era doctor in his scrubs. :-)

Your charcoal is great. The fact that part of the head is not visible makes it more interesting.
