This is a quick sketch that I did of my daughter while she was watching TV this past Thanksgiving. It took me about an hour and because I was doing it quickly, it doesn't look exactly like her. It's close, but something's not quite right.

It's much easier to get realistic looking drawings when you can take your time and copy something that's static and unchanging. Live subjects are more difficult because they squirm and wiggle... ;)

This is a practice sketch of a line drawing published on p. 179 of Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.

The human face makes an excellent drawing subject from any angle!
