Every now and then, I see a person with interesting features. Immediately, I want to draw this person, but it’s tough! This usually happens when I’m completely off practice with my portraits. On top of that, the particular feature that interested me most, takes over and turns out to be over-exaggerated. Let’s assume that this person’s long neck is extendable! xD There are issues with other features as well. However, it’s not bad for a drawing without reference. After all, random people are usually quite dynamic, all I have is a glance at them, and then I have to work from memory. Still, I try to make the most of it and consider this to be a good practice. After awhile, I see all the mistakes and try to pay more attention to troubling places the next time. So, why the long face? xD
