Portrait drawing 1

This was my first portrait drawing. To learn how to get the size of the facial features correct, we were given a skeleton to draw over. This was a hard assignment because I did not know the techniques of drawing a portrait and it was also frustrating because my drawing looked very animated.

We drew skeletons to learn how to shade and draw the body based on proportions. The skeleton was difficult to draw if you were not motivated and having all of the dimensions of the bones in the drawing was fairly challenging. I was glad when I finished because drawing skeletons are very time consuming and frustrating, but also fun at the same time.
