Drawing of Geoffrey Rush:
This is a self-portrait of sorts. It’s drawn from a reference photograph, taken a few years ago, of me at the beach.
I’m mostly happy with this. I think the proportions and generally feel of the drawing is good. There are a few weaker areas like the front of the head and where the right arm meets the sleeve… I’m pretty happy with the shirt and jeans and how the folds look. The towel I think is mostly good.
Tried to spend a bit more time with the detail of anatomy in this one so I focused on just the eyes and nose. Picked a reference photo of Tom Hiddleston to work from.
Quite happy with it overall.
I did two things today which I don’t usually do: I drew something other than a person and I added colour. The rose in colour ended up being fun to draw and i think the outcome is reasonable. The outline is better than my colour pencil shading which is something I’ve hardly practiced at all during this challenge and therefore have not really improved past mediocre.
Well we’re into the last month of the challenge. I’m pretty happy with myself. Barring any serious unforeseen circumstances chances seem good that I will successfully finish this ambitious 2013 resolution. Home stretch here we come!
This was a super loose and fast sketch of Will Ferrell as anchorman. Reviewing it for its accuracy and likeness I would sum it up thus: GARBAGE 1/5. Reviewing it as a very quick general sketch of a man I might give it a 2.5/5.
