Here are some details about my project:

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Willow stick charcoal, toothed paper, Kneadable eraser- and LOTS of hours of drawing, drawing, drawing. Still not quite right but can see my technique improving. You can see the evolution of my skill.

What are you most proud of? I remember many of Gary's trick and tips, however it's really not a good likeness of me at all. Anyway, back to the drawing board they say...

I like your drawings. I am new to Craftsy. I can draw, but I want to learn how to give my faces more character and make the expressions fit the activity or emotion.

I can see the orbs. The middle one is my favorite. Good job

I think you might of got it H. I love the middle one. You can see the really good improvement as you progress. I am a bit jealous now.

The middle one is very pleasing. I think, even if our portraits are too real that could be insulting. I think we should be kind to ourselves and our objective. Good job. KTMcG
