  • And here’s mine at last (one of those weeks, finally got to it today!). My noses need practice. The mouthes went better than I expected. I have a bit more practice with eyes, and this lesson helped me improve.

    1. Pencil lines. Of course, draw them lightly in the first place and with a hard (less smeary) pencil. But in the case of a light-colored subject like the white gumball, how to avoid pencil marks showing through in the end? Do you just erase over when everything…[Read more]
