Funny faces

I want to start drawing from life more. It's fun, and feeds my brain with new ideas.


Here's a couple doodles of people from the bus, and a drawing of the model from my work's "drawing session" this morning. She had this funny grimace-smile that I wanted to capture.
The colors on the first one turned out awful because I started out trying to paint him in bluish light, but that failed so I changed it. I need to experiment with other types of lighting, though.

  3. I agree that you should draw from life more often because these are awesome. I like how they each kind of look like there's a vacuum just out of the frame sucking them up. It makes for fun shapes and nice composition.

  7. I love the exaggeration in these... unless that's what these folks really looked like. If that's the case, way to find the freaks. I LOVE the top one! What a great, stylized character. Always impressive, Sam. You should draw from life all the time.

  21. Thanks everyone! I really appreciate all the comments here.

    Joonasjoonas: The sketches probably took 10-15 minutes each. Then painting over them probably took about 30 minutes.
