A Face A Day: Pencil Sketch

 After I loaded this up  to Flickr I had posters remorse. Somehow I always see things in the Flickr thumbnails that I miss when I’m looking at the physical work or even the local scan.

On this drawing I knew the nose was too long before I scanned it but I can claim that is a mannered idiosyncrasy. What I didn’t see was the way the highlight down the side of the nose looks like a raised mole tunnel. Aaaaargh!

I went back and softened it on the original. I haven’t decided if I’m going to re-post or not yet.
