    Day 11 – Drawing with a red pen now. Going to grab more of those colored pens. I like it a lot.

    I like both of them and it’s definitely noticeable that you feel more comfortable with pen.

    Maybe just focus on that for a while and then try to translate the learned to other mediums.

    If it’s about your pen work you could for example try to experiment with different strokes like creating a portrait with more expressive “scribbled” lines or try stippling. 👍👋

    Nice work. Just because you’re working with line doesn’t mean you need to ignore value. You can emphasize lines on the core shadow and shadow side for a more convincing effect!

    Day 10 – Drawing with a pen is kinda fun. And I prefer it for a sketching. No need to sharpen and I have to deal with it if I sketch wrong. Red drawing is from yesterday. Liked how it turned out. Might grab more of those colored pens.

     

    @Christopher – Thanks. I watched a bit of Crhis Legaspi his rendering, but didn’t do the last exercise, switched before to the Steve Huston lessons, but I am not that far. I think i prefer the sketchy drawing style. I will give Villpu a try, after I finished the beginner Sheldon lessons.

    Weird the post appeared so late. Maybe it doesn’t work with multiple pics.

    Forgot to post the last days work.

    Day 12

     

    @Christopher – Thanks, at the moment I am just comfortable with drawing straight lines and no idea how to shade hair with it. Gotta find some lessons about it.
    @ Jakob – Thanks. I am pretty bad at value. Drawing/Shading with a pen is kinda hard since I tend to press to hard.

    Hey Andrew,

    I am a big fan of pen drawing myself, it forces you to make a lot of decisions and really think about what’s developing on the page. I do believe it is important to keep in mind the fundamentals, which is to say the planes of the face and how they affect the values. It’s even more important to figure out where the values go, than to get the values themselves 100 percent correct. I did a draw-over outlining the most important planes and plane-changes in the face and readjusted the values a little bit. Also, always keep in mind the relationship of the center of the lips to the center of the brow (the facial angle)

    Keep up the great work,

    Iliya

    Thanks Ilya, most of the time I am not sure If I should spent so much time on shading or just keep the drawing more simple where I can leave some spots just white.

    Since I got a bit late with posting here are the drawing from the last two days and today.

    Day 13
