Portrait Practice

Yesterday I had an idea. I would post a status update on my facebook page and offer to do portraits for people with the only catch being that they have to post the drawing on their facebook and instagram account. I thought this would be a great way to get some exposure and practice all in one go.

I am still working on getting better at drawing peoples faces and capturing a likeness has been a challenge for me. It's starting to get easier to draw faces though and I am starting to get my proportions correct or mostly correct so I feel like I am on the verge of being able to draw people and actually have it look like them. 

I got 4 people so far who want me to draw portraits of them with a limit of 10 spots for the time being. I will post them as I do them. Probably going to be at least 1 a day. 

Got one to do today! I'll post that either later today or tomorrow!

Here is the first one I did!
