Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This is a study of expressions on faces for children's books. I focused on keeping the face simple and looking like the same person. I haven't much experience in character development for children so this was a great lesson! I used a mechanical pencil on simple sketch book paper.

Is the piece for sale? No

What are you most proud of? That the faces are simplistic yet expressive. (Something I couldn't do before)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a wonderful Course. Personal and down to earth. Shadra breaks down the steps into easy lessons.

These are great drawings! I think you've done an exceptional job at making the character look like the same person. I struggle with that too. I also have to say that you do a really good job at drawing hands. Keep up the good work!
