Open Class Studio Timed Pose Sketches Made into Expressive Portraits Later in my Studio from memory. There is a lot more work don't in the after class session because I picked these sketches to elaborate on freestyle.
These 2 are not my example of GOOD LIKENESSES...I was drawing from a distance ( 10' - 15' ) and my view changed several times to the left or right. I struggled to see detail and was just too far away. So I finish what I can in class and I take these 2 examples ( because they are basically sound sketches - but not a portrait likeness!... > rather a characterization based on familiarity ( observation ) I could discard them but at that point, "likeness" is abandoned and "character detail" as well as "abstract anatomy" is focused on. So you build a face from memory. Technically I can say that there are inaccuracies, but they only apply to likeness / > "likeness" is irrelevant to the studio "Practice" of solving a persona >to get a realistic face with >stylized portions of anatomy and painted areas >that cover for what would be considered to be an inaccuracy if I were doing a commissioned portrait. This is what a Studio Artist does...use the model creatively as a guide.
