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......
