I started with two days of circles and lines. Today I made the circles and lines as warmup and tried the faces. Still wonky in my lines and unsure about size and positioning of the eyes.

But the results are much better than I expected. Until today I would've used my eraser 100 times to get to a result even coming close to todays outcome. I'm super excited for the next lessons!

I'm pretty happy how day/lesson 4 turned out. The second neck should be okay..ish. But those Skalps are not really what I want them to be. I had only one hour toay, so maybe I'll stick with that lesson for one more day, before I move on to lesson 5.First steps on a long journey... - image 3 - student project

The heads got much longer as I tried to draw them free. As you can see, brushpen is also new for me. But I had fun doing these and some more looong heads and lonely eyes.

Some females. Still too long noses, but the eyes are slowly finding their place in the faces.

Feels like I'm getting somewhere. But the eyes are shrinking and getting weird different-sized. So back to practicing eyes.
