Had to start another one - it got dark in the museum and the guy who's running the lights is doing a horrible job!! Couldn't see anything on the other head I was drawing so I started doing this instead. I think about +1 hour...
I know it is too unfinished to show off but I thought it could be cool to show all the stages before it's finished. So this is first stage - composition, construction, and have it to look more or less like what I'm drawing.
Next step is details and light/shade...
It's seems your doing quite well. These are rather well done and I'd love to see more. Please continue to update.
the last one especially looks promising i love his facial expression
waiting for you....at: www.dreamchasergallery.com ...
i like your dedication! 37 hours?!?! - man, the longest time i have ever used on a drawing is 4 hours -good job. I used to draw slowly too but i have become faster and faster - just try to be a bit violent when drawing (i know it sounds weird).
btw what museum are you drawing at?
You are really working hard to understand the planes of the face. That will definately pay off down the road!
Be really careful with the placement of the features and try to draw only what you see. Our right (the sculptures left) side of his face seems to be a little bit low. His mouth and chin line up, but its at a slightly different angle then his nose and eyes. I hope this helps.
I think you are headed in the right direction. Nice work

I follow the russian school of drawing so there are really no fast ways of doing it - and I do not draw what I see, I construct everything from scratch.
Some things might be a bit off, but there really isn't anything I can do about it as my knowledge of anatomy and perspective isn't very good.
In the russian school of drawing you draw what you know, not just what you see. The emphasis is form. So an academical drawing in that sense isn't any different from a sculpture in clay! You draw form(light and shade is your own decision and construction and MUST follow form).
So of course when I draw in a museum I have to just decide the form from what I can guess and calculate (I view the sculpture from the side and front - I'm not alowed to touch the sculpture) - And if you look closely at many sculptures that wasn't made by Michelangelo or Bernini you'll see that they are often a bit uneven - this is also why it is better to contruct rather than just copy what you see. (you don't want to repeat the sculpturis mistakes!!)
I sit in "Statens museum for kunst" that is the main gallery in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Thanks for all comments, I will keep posting for another week, then I go to Italy to start study at Angel Academy of Art.
Took hours to construct the eyes, I'm more or less satisfied with the result. The direction of her view is now clear.
I've decided to give the background a very dark tone, and then shade the face with softer values.
unfortunately I won't be able to work more on these drawings... I move to Florence tomorrow
Had a bad case of food poisoning last week, didn't get much job done
I plan to continue drawing sculptures in the summerbreak, July and August...
This will definitely pay off, great approach at tackling planes and mass issues; inspiring.
wwoooooww holy crap its really cool pencil works. crap wish to make some like it. great!
Good luck over there.
