Scorsese take two and three

I wasn't very happy with my first sketch, so I took a little time this morning to do a couple more quick sketches of Mr. Scorsese. My favorite by far is the side profile, still there's a little charm in the second one . . . all in all, good practice.

Much better! But you're right, it's nice to show people that sometimes it takes a few tries before you get it right.

I just love how you did the mouth on the profile, - makes me wanna hug him. :P
And I agree with you, these two are a lot better than the first one, - but seeing only the first you still think it's absolutely amazing. That's saying something about your work. (:

Thank you Dan and Muffin. This is usually how I work. When I have to draw someone for a job, I will usually do a couple quick 5 to 10 minute doodles of their face, like the first Scorsese, this gives me more room for creativity, from there I take what I like and leave the rest alone. Before I start to sketch, I already see it in my head, the way I want it to be in the end. 80% of the time I like my first take and take it to the finish. But this is only the sketch stage, which shouldn't take much time. The real likeness and personality comes when I paint, by painting the person, I am focusing more on the information and recording it the way I see it in my mind. Make sense?

Yes, lots of sense. And a lot of dedication! You're a bucket of inspiration. :) I'm impressed you do all this, and that you actually make sketches every morning. I will develope this sort of work progress when I go back to univeristy, I hope. :)
thank you for the explaination!
