September Sketch Fest Part 8

More from sketchbook #24.

Profiles can be tricky: I have a tendency to make the face either too long (usually because of a miscalculation with the nose) or too short (miscalculation of everything). So, as always, practice is important. Years ago I found a book that had a great assortment of faces (apparently all Caucasian, however) and hair styles that provided good practice material and demonstrated how every face is unique (if you think a face (including your own face) is boring or without much distinguishing character, you haven't looked closely enough).
