Practice with Heads!

I haven't done any drawing for absolutely ages. Just haven't felt like it or had the urge to do it. No inspiration at all. Which is very naughty I know because it just means I'm getting out of practice and fall deeper and deeper into depreciation of myself and my talent, so it's a vicious circle.

Today I forced myself to take two of the books my boyfriend bought me for Christmas, and using them created a face on portrait of a young man, completely from my imagination.

The point of this exercise was to practice the proportions of the head, something I've always had terrible trouble with. So keeping the measurements in mind, I just made up a face.


I think it turned out ok. It's certainly a lot better than some of my previous efforts!
Now I just need to get back in the whole swing of drawing again before I become more disheartened....
