This is my second sketch. I chose a photo of Tracee Ellis Ross from a Vogue I had on my coffee table. I was able to sketch this so quickly. I could really see the improvement after taking the class which was pretty exciting. I think that these are the most believable faces I've ever drawn so yay to that.
