Charcoal sketches

These are based on an exercise from One Drawing a Day.

 My camera.
I selected these two faces because here I followed the steps from the book more closely. The idea was to start the sketch by blocking the big shapes, then adding the features. I kept starting with the features andI had to be really careful to start with the shapes. I decided to leave some of the contour lines out.

And because I was in a playful mood, I turned the last 2 sketches into this:

My first impulse was to throw them to the garbage, but then I decided to glue them down in the sketchbook. as a mean of recording progress. Hopefully there will be progress...
