Hi Eddy, you're looking rather linear today...

*This is my attempt at free handing a face using the paint tool on Photoshop. I think it has gone well considering the lack of precision and control over the marks made, and the use of negative space allows the mind to fill in the gaps.

Like other portraits I think some parts of the picture are more successful than others, and I'd like to try this technique again, using different facial expressions and maybe including the hair to see if this way of markmaking is adaptable.
It is a really fast method and the result is quirky.
-but you just need to remember not to be too precious about the lines and don't "over" draw the subject, minimalism is key to this style.
