Sketching is like breathing to me. Having said that, Its not that I sketch everything I see, but when I see something I get this strong urge to sketch. I visualize myself drawing the eyes, shading the hair. It is quite unnerving at times, because I cant concentrate on anything else until I have finished sketching it.
When I saw this face, I had the same feeling. I wanted to draw this pair of eyes and lips, so badly, that I clicked the picture of the original image with my phone and started sketching. I finished it in two hours, with sketch pencils 2B and 4B on A3 ivory paper.
This according to me is the best portrait I have sketched so far. Please give me your opinion. Also tell me what you think of the expressions.
