(Jack Layton is the leader of the NDP, the third largest federal party in Canada)

My scanner renders pencil shadows crappily, hence the smudges. On paper it looks better. I used a very crappy 2HB Papermate standard non-drawing school pencil. I also drew this guy from his leaflet that was sent to us. Of course I would never vote NDP. Go Green!

Here y'are, critiques please!

I think this is a major improvement over the first.  Everything looks more real than in the first one.  Probably with some more practice you could get a few more details that are still off

Ears
Eyes look crazy
Neck looks a tad thin

But still way better than I can do.

Something that I haven't told you on MSN:

It looks like you have begun to draw it directly. Do a diagram first: a circle then a crosshair. The eyes and ears are on the horizontal line, the nose on the vertical line.

Ha not too shaby. My eyes go like that  :-? ask Oz. Although you might need to add that ever-bulging vien in Layton's forehead.

Maybe there should be a line to show where the chin is as it goes under the mouth...? Hmmm, it looks alright, even without that though.

Thanks everyone! My next drawing will incorporate all the suggestions. Nath: someone once told me to do that, but it never worked.

Yeah, and that little dainty smile and those hand gestures...

Not too shabby!  Ears need to be bigger and he's a little cockeyed, but it's a major improvement...  good stuff!

Thanks everyone. Smiley
Here's my next sketch, of John Conova, some average guy that appeared in a magazine...studies computer games or something...
It was rather quick, and done again with crappy paper and pencil, with a bad eraser. But for some reason I think the goatee seems to make it a tad more realistic.

Making him have a hidden chin that didn't look like it was receding was hard, and I didn't quite get it right.

I think the hair needs a bit of work Smiley

Why not post a photo that you'll use as a model, then a sketch based on that photo? Then we can see better what you're doing (cos I don't know what either of those people look like for real, so it's hard to see how close to reality they are)

OK, I will for my next sketch.

I drew a rough sketch this afternoon. It was interesting, a person with two heads, one womanlike and the other manlike, three breasts, three legs, four arms. I seem to have lost it, though. ^_^
I like drawing weird sketches. Smiley
