Practice trying to be able to catch faces quickly. . . these were with watercolor pencils and/or graphitints. Added some water later on some.

Going to try to do a few a day just to see if I can catch any sort of likeness quickly.

This first one was done a while back, the other two today from TV. Didn't get proportions right on either of these two but practice, practice. . . :)

These are cute, Rainy. The first one looks most proportional. Good use of shading with water.

Good work Rainy. I am on my continual journey of trying to improve my faces too.... I really like the last one. Great shading and colour on the first. Look forward to seeing more.

Good faces! Not seeing the models, I can't say how much is changed from the model's actual proportions but they're all human, nothing's so far out as to look like it's not just a personal variation in proportions. Well done! Trying to sketch from TV while models are moving and talking is very hard, harder than life in some ways. At least in life you can ask a person to hold still for a bit and let them know you're sketching!

Thanks Robert, Debby, Joan and Viv.

Here is another TV quickie but had trouble getting the mouth. . . :o
This was done in Cachet kraft paper sketchbook but put it in this thread since its the quick faces project :)

I can see the mouth is a little off. But, it's still a good sketch.

Mouth may be a little off but the eyes, brows and ears are very good :)

I feel I'd recognise him if I met him.

My second try at a face today. . . this one was from a photo on the computer rather than from the television. Ink and some white pencil on kraft paper.

These sketches are looking really good. I love the effect you are getting with the toned paper.

These are fantastic! I seem to be avoiding faces lately, you are very courageous. Thanks for sharing them :-)

O indeed- I recognized Stephen King immediately, but Joan beat me to the punch! I also aim for fast-sketch and it is exciting when others see the likeness- Keep up the good work!:thumbsup:

Good work Rainy. Have you tried Prismacolors on the toned paper? They lay down quite nicely and don't smear like graphite does, so they make lovely portraits with the paper and a white.
