I finally took the time to go to Portrait Night again (most of the last semester I would forget or I was just really busy with homework). I thought I was going to be rusty after the break, but it turns out that I've actually improved! Instead of taking 15 min to do a portrait that takes up only a quarter of a page, I can now do full page portraits (huzzah)! I still need to work on shadow shapes, though, but that's something I feel I need to research more before I start just adding shadows willy-nilly.
Anyway, here are the portraits (can you recognize any of the faces below)?
Right after this sketch I decided to use ink just to mess around with lines. They turned out to be a success, especially with the last one.
