Can change the while proportion. I started to chuck this sketch from last week.
Her head is now in proportion. I added maybe a 1/4″ on top and the left side of her head. That little bit made all the difference.
The shadows on her face are still not perfect but better. I used my caran d’ache neocolor ii to color her face and a bit in her hair. Used as a crayon they are somewhat opaque which let me lighten the darks.
I think the pink cheek on the left distracts somewhat from the dark on the left cheek.
Here she is before. Is she perfect now?! No. And maybe I will torture her some more. Or maybe she will end up in the garbage. We shall see!!
