I recently took a Skillshare class by picture book illustrator Nina Rycroft. Exploring the nine different face shapes and how to draw them.
Drawing the faces of characters has always been a challenge. Fear and trepidation sets in and familiarity takes over, compelling my pencil to sketch shapes and features I have previously used. Resulting in a collection of characters who look like they could be related. Not ideal…!
Here are the results of the class project.
