Yesterday, I posted a traced pic of an Indian Man. I found the pic on a Facebook group page that is dominated by Indian sketch artists. Many of them are very talented. I'm still a beginner at sketching. Mimicking is how an artist learns technique. So, I've been mimicking the styles of the Indian sketch artists that I admire. Here's my completed Indian man sketch:
Facial features are a tough hack for me. I don't think that there's any way to get better except to keep sketching.
This drawing is, obviously, an exercise in heavy shading.
Compare the traced image in yesterday's post to the full sketch in this post. I'm still struggling to get dimension and perspective correct.
But, I'm learning something new every day. That's what counts. Soon, I'll be moving on to color and animation. And, my own style. Learning to imitate other artists' styles is the traditional starting point.
