Practicing Faces – Guess Who?

Last week I spent my time meeting up with a couple of friends who would usually be at work, so I spent no time being creative at all. I have, however, been studying pictures of faces as that is something I need to work on, and a couple of days ago I bought myself a set of pencils, ready for my next life drawing class. Last night I decided to have a little go at drawing a face – can you see who it is?

(My husband told me "That's really good, I could see straight away who it is - it's Popeye isn't it?" !)


Actually, I've just realised this is my first proper drawing of a face, ever - I've just impressed myself! :)


Drawn with my shiny new 6B sketch stick, in my pretty little sketch book!

Yay! You should get a prize for being the first to respond!

Rosa, I still can't believe that people actually recognise him from this drawing! You're the 5th! The others were friends and family, and they haven't even seen the film that this is from! I'm shocked.

Oh sweet Johnny. And a good Johnny if I do say so...

Sweeny Todd, yes?

Thank you Deanna :) Yes, it's from Sweeney Todd. My favourite sound track at the moment! I'm almost as obsessed with this one as I was with Phantom of the Opera! :)

Popeye, are you kidding? He is a very nice Johnny Depp. But then maybe it's a female thing. Just about every woman I know faints at the site of him. Myself included. Yummy :)

Hahaha, yes, he was kidding!

I'm glad you like the drawing - and the subject! He's not really my cup of tea, but I think he's a great actor.
