How I got better at drawing
Back when I was in my high school art class, I really wanted to learn how to draw faces, so I sketched, and sketched, and then sketched some more. But it would be years before my drawings of people went from looking scared and as if they had bad eyelash extensions, to looking more realistic (see below).
Maybe you can relate? I would try really hard on a sketch and feel happy with some parts of the drawing, but disappointed with other parts - and not sure how to fix it.
I don't want that for you! My goal is to share my tips and tricks with you - that I have learned from reading books, taking courses and simple trial and error - so that you can learn to draw faster, and with less frustration.
In this post I will focus on the eyes, because to me they are the most important feature in getting a likeness.
