Lesson 5 by Jeremy

First of all, I have to thank whoever suggested drawing within a window box (I think it was Gabriele but not sure). It made drawing my initial oval much easier, which ultimately lead to a better end result. This attempt at Lesson 5 is by no means perfect, but it is still much better than any of my previous first attempts. I also have to thank everyone who suggested we draw "big". I'm used to drawing relatively close to the size of the image I'm copying, but drawing bigger helped out a great deal.

I apologize for the delay in posts. I let work get the better of me for the past few weeks so I've been a little slack. Hope everyone is enjoying this blog as much as I am. I can already see that people are making progress and that there are some really talented artists out there.

Take care everybody, and good luck.

Really nice. Big improvement from your lesson 1 post. Drawing big does help, that was one of my suggestions. I never tried that window box method, but it looks like it really helped out. I'll try it on my lesson 5 post.

Good work, Jeremy. It looks like one of the egg construction lines were off, which makes it hard to match up the face. The lines look better on the bigger draw'ns too.

good to see ya again Jermey! Not bad for missing a few weeks. Get back on the wagon and I bet you'll be nailing the lessons.

Looking good, just make sure your guide lines are close to Prestons, and your feature placement should come pretty close. Take into account that Preston's final drawing is a little different from his initial guides. Try tracing a few before you try your studies, so you can see the differences.
