I was going to try painting a closely cropped face using an underpainting so I could focus on values and colors separately. I was still distorting the drawing to fit the digital canvas so I figured it’d be a good idea to practice drawing faces off the internet. Some are more portrait-y and some are more caricature. The thing about doing a likeness is you can focus too much on reproducing something in a face that doesn’t translate into an interesting drawing. Then there’s times you get so into creating something with a drawing it doesn’t look like the subject anymore.
