Tonight had the urge to indulge again in my occasional habit of "take random flickr photo, try to draw a copy of it". This one came out okay, except I feel like I am probably making some very first-year-art-student-esque noob mistakes involving proportions and tonal values and such.

Something definitely went a bit wonky with that right eye also. I'm going to spare myself the embarrassment of just how much this doesn't look like the original by cleverly not linking to the original, but I'm happy it pretty much looks like a face. One that exists in actual three-dimensional space, even.

Also I am happy to discover "blatant overuse of smudge tool in the gimp" actually does goes a long way towards "it kinda looks like a painting".
