Face Sketch on Brown Paper

face sketch2, originally uploaded by James Gillespie.

This is just a random sketch, I enjoy using reference to do studies but I often with try and invent faces to avoid how stale a face drawn from a photograph can become. It is steadily becoming a process of mine to sketch from photograph and then create a drawing from that sketch it separates you enough that you start to exaggerate and create certain inaccuracies that lead to a more interesting image.

This is an example of a completely invented face no photoreference was used.
