Old work...


Check this out!  A blast from the past.  I used to do a lot of faces and referencing fashion magazine and I loved working with chalk pastels which is what this piece is made out of.  I only remembered I did this when I was preparing my hard copy illustration portfolio.  I was going to meet a potential new client the next evening and it was organized at the last minute to fit both our schedules.  This was one of the pieces I decided to show.  I did this when I was 19 and it helped me get into Uni.

A part of me wonders why I stopped.  I wasn't too bad at drawing faces from photos and I was pretty darn good with chalk pastels.  Maybe I should start drawing faces from pics again and see if my skills have improved at all.  I haven't drawn portraits or referenced faces from photos in years......
