Every morning for the last 150 days I have created a quick postcard sized portrait drawing (180 if you count my previous month of drawing eyes). The first 100 were just random faces and covered a range of materials, but this latest 50 are just biro and all of movie stars.
Some are good drawings, some are bad. Some are good likenesses, so aren't. Some take 45 minutes, some just 20.
Am I improving, learning, developing? Yes, I can safely say that I am getting better at drawing the human face and capturing a likeness. The important thing to me is that I draw everyday.
