Exercise


This is something I used to do years ago and did for quite a while. Pretty good exercise not just for drawing faces, but bodies, movement, clothes, hands, etc. It's great for observation. Using b/w newspaper pictures was a delight and after a couple of drawings the hand would move with a nice flow and easiness. I recommend it strongly.
