So here in Austin we have a weekly newspaper that is nothing but mugshots from the week's arrests (Busted! is the name if you care). So I thought it might make good practice for drawing faces. I figure I'll do about half a dozen a day and see how that works out. These are all about 4-5 minutes, basically trying to get better at quickly laying out facial features. Fortunately there are all different races, ages, etc getting arrested around here, so it will give me good practice with the variations.
The more I look at these, the more I hate them, but, I'm gonna be doing this for a month at least so hopefully a little practice will help.
Mastery is the result of ceaseless error, combined with ruthless self-appraisal.
