LESSON 6 by WICKS (David Omar)

I'm happier with this lesson. The angle (tilt) is subtle. It's also a front view which is much easier to measure. Sometimes I have trouble following my instincts. In the intial red pencils I made the top of the head longer. In the blue I brought it down, which was wrong. This tells me that my eyes still aren't seeing the proper negative space between the shapes.

I'm happier with my inks. I'm trying to mimic Preston's brush as close as possible. The reproduction of the book kinda makes it look like he doesn't close his ink lines. He's a pro at connecting 2 brush strokes seamlessly . Definitely need to practice some more.

Critiques and tips welcomed and appreciated.

I would try the lesson 6 one or two more times to get try get it a little closer, but your lesson 5 post is really good.

Yeah, I could use some more tries, before I feel comfortable with it.

Looks good, David. I make sure my construction lines are on point before I move to the features. I don't know if that's cheating, but it helps me a lot.
