Practice drawing a half-shadowed face

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 1:16 pm

This is a face with fascinating contrasts: light and shadow, young and mature, beauty and menace.

My original goal is to practice depicting the shadowed side with minimal amount of details.
Then, during the drawing, I encountered great difficulty capturing the unique identify of the face after 3 nights and 1 morning. It has a fascinating combination of a juvenile face laced with mature features such as plump lips, wearing a delicate and yet sorrowful, vengeful expression.
