We had a very large thunderstorm come through the other day, Beanie was mostly unfussed until there was a VERY large crack of thunder directly overhead, at which point he had to get as snuggled up with me as possible.

After doing that I realised I should probably better try to get my facial proportions consistently correct, and came across this really good series of tutorials by a Lebanese calligraphy artist! https://design.tutsplus.com/series/human-anatomy-fundamentals--cms-724 (specifically the human face ones). They're very much more in the cartoon vein than realistic, but I found they really helped.
They're all directly front-on, but I figure I need to start somewhere!
Then I decided to try my hand at drawing an actual person and man, getting proportions correct is HARD.
Also hard? Noses. And mouths. And I had an image open next to it as reference as I was drawing too!
Procreate and the Apple Pencil are crazy though, it's so like drawing that I didn't even think twice about turning the pencil sideways to do the shading, and it all just worked exactly as you'd expect it to. :o
