Among the things I have struggled with — other than squirrels — are people. I haven’t gotten people right yet. My main problem seems to be drawing an adult face rather than a child. My faces always appear to be faces of children. For an adult, the eyes are too big and faces too short.
I have a particular problem making eyes the right size. The profile I did of Garry on Saturday night is as close to an adult face as I’ve gotten. It’s just a black on white sketch and it’s very simple, but it looks more like Garry than anything else I’ve done.
I played with color and hue on Photoshop. The original is the wrong color red-brown. This is far from perfect, but it’s closer. I don’t know what the right color IS. I have around 500 pencils in various sets. Surely one ✏ pencil should be labeled Squirrel Red!
