sketchbook #21

I will always believe the mouth is the most difficult part to draw. People always say its the eyes, no it is the mouth.

stunning sketch. The mouth might be the most difficult, but the way you drew the eyes are what makes this piece, well done!

Lovely sketch, Dave.

I have to agree with you. While I often (always) have trouble getting the eyes to match one another, if I get through a drawing without having to redraw the mouth from scratch more than three times I'm doing well.

Beautiful sketch, and I can´t agree more with you, the mouth is the real challenge.

Mary Bullock said...

You are right - the most frequent comment I get after doing a portrait is "There's just something about the mouth . . ."

Tyson Murphy said...

that's why i only draw things that don't have mouths!!

DanNan said...

Wonderful. I love the simplicity of the line work. Makes me want to go and practice some more.

RnB, afraid I don't know just some model.

dobby said...

yes..ifor me the eyes is the most difficult

Sam Nielson said...

This is why most of my characters have muppet mouths. And, I might say this mouth turned out very nice considering your difficulty with it.

Brian Cutler said...

I think taken individually, eyes, nose, and mouth are pretty easy to draw. The real trick is getting them all positioned and sized correctly relative to each other, which is something you do amazingly well. Good work Dave!

Mr Loulou said...

wonderful sketch,

I think that the most difficult part is the part you consider as the more difficult.
Maybe have you made more eyes studies in the past...

Anyway, it's brilliant
