This is a piece I made recently for a swap, requiring a hand drawn face. At first I was not going to do this swap, because I am not that good at it, but of all the things I want to improve on, drawing faces would rank high on the list. So, I did it. It's not the best, it's not the worst. Yes, I can draw. But I really want to understand what I am doing with each mark. I want something in between reality and fantasy. I purposefully elongated her face, trying to convey an atmosphere, but don't know what that quite is! I like some aspects of it, and I enjoyed working with the color. I still want to learn more about the anatomy of the face, and how to make it more my own. I envision a style, but it hasn't come out yet. From what I know, practice helps a lot with this, and I haven't devoted a lot of time to it, but again, it's on the list!

Thanks for visiting, I appreciate all your comments!
