Smiley Process – Part 2

Once the general shapes of the faces were in place, I had to start making choices. Guinness’ face was still stumping me, so I gave my attention to other details: the shape of his hat, his scarf, and the background.

My rule of thumb: when you’re having a hard time “seeing” the positive shapes and spaces for the drawing, work on the negative ones.


About Sarah

Now residing in Las Vegas, I was born in Michigan and moved to Texas when 16. After getting my Masters degree in English, I moved to Hollywood, because of the high demand for Medievalists (NOT!). As a freelance writer and editor, I found Nevada offers better conditions for the wallet. I love writing all sorts of things, and occasionally also create some artwork.
