Practice drawing of a Vanuatu man:


I looked at a photo licensed CC. Attribution: Graham Crumb/ Thank you!

I used a carbon pencil and graphite pencils. The carbon pencil, which has charcoal in it, smudged. That’s why everything is…..smudged.

This drawing looks great in person. I can’t believe how blah my photo of it came out. Bleek. Blek.
The Imagicity site is down, so let me show you the photo reference via Wikimedia:
Old Man (Imagicity 854)

My angle of him is different. I’m a little further away from his face. Maybe I wanted him to look slightly more ….I’m gazing into your face, photographer. You’re not gazing into mine.
