Superman: Struggle

I’m honestly not liking any of these drawings. I know I can do better but it is a struggle to get a likeness while keeping spontaneity.

I could blame the photos because they are from the web and of really low quality but I know that if I had the experience with heads that I want I could use what I see and make up the rest.

Don’t get me wrong though, I’m loving this and I can’t wait to start again tomorrow. I’ve found something that is really stretching my abilities and I must do better. Practice practice practice.

What went well?

The drawing is well done in some places.

What didn’t go so well?

The likeness is not there and I’m lacking confidence in my drawing so it is looking stilted and stiff.

What did I learn?

I just need to keep working and keep trying things until I find what works even if I have to do 100 of these drawings.
