I bought another drawing book.
This was the “before” portrait. Because I’ve been doing this a few years, this isn’t TOO bad. The “befores” in the book looked like cartoons. One error that jumps out at me now is that the top of the head is too small. The author calls that the lobotomy error. We are more interested in the face, so we don’t realize that the eyes are always halfway up the face; it’s an interesting optical illusion. I do look pretty fierce here.
