So many faces!

So many faces! - student project

I watched the videos about a week ago and finally got some time where I could sit down and draw for a while.
For the moment I skipped drawing each part of the face several times and just skipped into a full face. I REALLY like the way Gabrielle does noses and lips.
I want to continue sketching faces like this and to go some of the worksheets, then do another full portrait face and compare the differences. For now though, this is all I have done and I'm really happy with it.

So, I really love drawing digitally and wanted to try to translate this method to my computer. It was really fun to do, although getting my tools to smooth out and blend was a bit of a challenge.

And I've started trying out individual features. I have to say, I don't enjoy practicing the features as much as the faces, but I know the practice will help me in the long run and they were quick and easy to do while I was half paying attention to a video.
