Been busy as of late, but managed to squeeze out one more bad looking Sin City study. First one was done two days back, but I realized I had few too many drinks and gave up. Second one was done sober, but still looked like I had been drinking. :)

Some master studies. Decided I really needed to get back into the practice. Been too absorbed with work, but that's no excuse. As you can see, I'm rusty and need a lot more work. I tried to work pretty small, quickly filling in shadow and light areas. Spent probably a good 45 or more minutes on each.
Portrait I did recently. It's been a while since I've gotten back into drawing heads. I've always had difficulty with symmetry, and I found myself going back and forth to a mirror to make sure one of the eyes is not too high or going too far off to the side. As I draw more and more, I realize that even if the drawing does not completely resemble the picture, it's not the end of the world, as long as I get a good likeness. One thing to note, though, I was drawing on a regular dinner table so the surface was flat instead of slanted like a drafting table, so the head appears longer than the picture, making the girl seem older.
