Laure asked about drawing methods yesterday.
So wanted to pop this drawing here as it is one of the very few sketches I have that I think I truly resisted the urge to look and see what the pen was up to. Again it is almost one line, darting about as I traced over the poor guy's face with my eyes. ( Why have I not been arrested yet ? )
And there is a bit of a Fred Flintstone beard shadow going on in there as well, as I used it to get my hand across the gap between mouth and chin. You can follow the line from temple, eyebrow, eye, nose, philtrum, lips, shadow under bottom lip, then, leap out to find chin and up across jaw and up to ear. I obviously cheated and looked briefly to place the second eye.
And the bonus is that sly, and slightly disapproving sideways glance that I doubt would have been there if I had let my judgement step in and alter.
Yabba dabba doooo.
