More quick sketches. Ball point pen again. Not an attempt at perfection, but an exercise in maintaining the right approach. It's very easy to get sucked into rendering features. Instead, I'm trying to model a solid structure in space. You have to build the frame of the house before you can put up the vinyl siding.
As Sargent said: "If you work on a head for a week without indicating the features you will have learnt something about the modeling of the head."

Draw, draw, draw. Worked in ballpoint pen to force me to get the structure right before putting in the features, since there's no erasing. Sargent (the great master) used to work until he got the eye socket just right, and only then put the eye in "like an egg on a plate".
