PPF #11 v.2

 I´m taking part of Ayala Art 29 FACES in May project, so it´s been all about portraits this month. I sketch a lot while waiting for the kids at the school doors. 29 doesn´t look as it is going to happen, let´s say "about half of the 29 faces". ;)
Loved how different these two look.

Tamara Laporte posted this video on You Tube showing how she made one of her faces in 20 minutes. Inspired by her I made my first male portrait. I was trying shading by applying black pencil and then rubbing my finger over it. It worked well in the first case but my girl looks as if she has a stubble! Lol.

 Another first: Can you notice this girl is tilting her head up? IRL you can see the shading better, it suggest the light coming from upside.

Another first: first time using real color on these sketches.

Your collection of faces is super.

I was never any good at 'people' I always preferred to draw things that could move away LOL

I have never tried a face looking up- that would be really tough! I am going to have to check out the 20 minute face video- I need all the facial help I can get!

Hi Paula! I love your faces. They are really hard to do but fun when one turns out the way you want it to. This sounds like another great challenge. Thank you for sharing your faces and inspiring me to keep on trying something new.
