Facial Study

This is a sketch of a face from a celebrity mag. If you can identify the person, then I guess I'm improving. The nose is way too long; a mistake made by most "beginner" portrait sketchers. The long nose lengthens the face making this gorgeous lady look a bit like a horse. Maybe the next nose will be shorter, afterall I'm not Modigliani who did this on purpose.


  1. My guess is Charlize Theron from the movie North Country?

  2. You might try this trick...turn the mag upside down and sketch it before studying the picture too much.

    Don't recall her name but didn't she recently make a movie about a woman who killed a number of men?
