Drawing faces from photos

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 11:28 am

With enhanced perceptual sensitivity through human evolution, faces are not usually suitable for beginner sketching. Nevertheless, I seldom follow learning rules, so I just went ahead without knowing proper manual shading.

For plausible deniability, just omit the identities of the drawing subjects.

In general, the more features a face has, the easier it is to sketch with contours. Eventually I will need shading (which implies shapes and volumes) to convey smooth surfaces.
