My blog has now moved to www.artistsophie.com so this blog will have no more articles on it.
Before attempting my first pencil portrait I’ve decided to practice on individual features, which I found quite useful. This shows the basic shape of an eye to begin with. Notice how this eye is not an oval shape but instead it has more of a curved shape, like drawing a fish. The slope’s more gradual top left than it is top right. Bottom of the eye has a deeper curve. Iris slightly covered by eye lid. By Sophie Huddlestone.
