Draw from a mirror assignment

Feel like gesture drawing with 30-60 seconds interval helps with seeing proportions without sighting a little bit better (even though I did gesture drawings of figures, not facial expressions).

Way to go on capturing the dynamics on your self-portrait, zkb. Nice work or job!

Well, if I was to suggest you a critique, I really think that your self-portrait does not have enough dynamics and vitality. Why don't you please loosen yourself up with 5 minutes of your mirror faces, in various expressions, and in 30 seconds, to warm up. And while you're at it, why can't you please, as I heard the word "mirror," do that vase/face exercise, followed by a link in the comment: https://www.drawright.com/try-an-exercise

Also, I'm here for two reasons. First of all, to make your facial expressions less stiff, and more fluid. And second, to come to terms with your right side of the brain, as it would be applied to your assignment.

And so, cheers to you, zkbpkp!!
