Jack:

How are you doing this... Using a photo as a reference and freehanding the result? Using PS? Painter?

Where do you start (hair? outline of face?)? This is completely new ground for me.

Right now, I'm trying to learn the basics so I have been using several drawings and books and just "fred-handing" it. I attempted to use a picture of my wife as a reference for doing the face in terms of placement and general shape though she says it looks nothing like her!

I'm really not doing things in the right order...I'm trying to learn to draw eyes so that's typically where I start and then I plop them onto a canvas with a copy and paste and start drawing around them. However, that's probably not the best way to start.

I've also been using several of Lee Hammond's drawing books as reference for learning to draw the facial features...

Jack,

Your technique is coming along nicely. The eyes look really good, and I see you are working on shading now. The shading on the face added a lot more depth to your image. Well done.

Jack,

I don't think I have been an inspiration before...cool. I am looking forward to seeing your next stage of development on the portrait. You are developing your technique and skills nicely and that should be your true inspiration.

Looking good Jack. I like the nose in the previous one better though. The shading is great in this one; I just don't think you would see the nostrils that you are showing unless the nose has a severe upturn. The warm tones look great and I like the hair in this portrait. It is a lot softer and more natural now. The next step is to work on the eyebrows and make them look a bit more natural, perhaps by adding subtle shades of color. Keep up the great work!

OK T...

Took your suggestions to heart...Didn't get to the eyebrows though. Those gray blobs are just placeholders...

Here's the latest.
