Robin

Portrait of Robin Williams. Mostly about practicing facial anatomy. Not 100% happy with the shape of the face. I think I am still off a little. On the other hand, I do not want to do something that is photorealistic. I want it to remain expressionistic. So, in that regard, maybe I am making things more complicated. Overthinking it.

Hate the shirt, but since it wasn't the point of this project, I decided to leave it. Same with the background. Mixed feelings about the hair elements.

I am happier with the flow of lines around the face. I think I am improving in that regard, if only by degrees. The lines feel like they are flowing more naturally than in my last couple of portraits.
