Can I really call myself a portrait Artist?
Hey Everyone, I came here for some type of reassurance , advice or anything else you want to share.
I make alot of portraits for practice and such, and (to my understanding) they turn out to be pretty good, but the fact of the matter is that they are of people I don't know. After I draw someone I don't know I want to do more but this time of someone I do know. I use the same method for both but it just doesn't look like the person i do know. I throw it away out of frustration instead of just analyzing where I went wrong. Anyway, does anyone else have this trouble? Any Solutions? ( I wasn't sure whether to post this here or artist discussion ) I forgot where the references come from for the first two. Looking back at the third picture I can see alot of mistakes.
