POTATO HEAD PROJECT



I often box myself into a difficult corner.  I try to work from my own photographs but I can't resist wanting to use compelling images that professional photographers create with amazing lighting and beautiful clarity of detail with poignancy of subject.  I keep thinking of ways I can fairly work with them.  I decided that I would create a series of drawings of different parts and then create my own Potato Head!  I will have a sketch book full of eyes, one of noses, one of lips and chins, face shapes, hair ideas, hats, hands, etc.  Then I will create totally new faces based on my sketches.  The first image is a combination of 3 different people.  How fun is this!!!

No matter how you do these, they are always fabulous! I don't see these eyes in your eye sketches though...do I?

That solution was exactly what I was going to suggest! Fun!!

Hi Sherry, You are a sharp observer! No, the eyes in the completed drawing have not been duplicated yet. Lots more to draw!
