I recently picked up Portrait Drawing by Joanna Henly. A concise series of exercises and tips on how to draw people's faces and features. The first set of exercises are to study and practice sketching the skull. Here are a few of my studies.

There is something quite cathartic about submitting expired URLs of your freshly deleted social accounts to Google's removal tool, and being fully rid of those dead links. Insta, Pinterest, Behance.. gone.


Use reference.

There's 3 types: 1) Inspo - other (concept) , styles you like etc. 2) Direct Reference - real world objects similar to what you're designing 3) Indirect Reference - unrelated, but has aspects you want to integrate.

Here's my reference sheet. For 3) I chose an armadillo/pangolin combo for the back shape.
