[this is a repeated post cause i don't know which forum is the right place to post question and help]
Hi, a few days ago, i decided to draw some faces again, just found out that my ball pen sketches as not as good as i like to think they are. i came across the fact that drawing with black pen can tend to lead to too strong a line and over shadowing, especially drawing female face. I realized that i might need to use a comic drawing approach, simplify the lines and shades might be a solution. are there any tutorial or books that any would recommend on this issue: simplifying lines from a photo reference??
i wish i can scan up my crappy drawing and post it here to show you what i meant, but i don't have the original photo with me...
anyway, many many thanks in advance.
hope to hear all your wisdom.
