So yesterday I was scribbling in my sketchbook, trying to get better at drawing without reference, when I drew a random female with long hair. I looked at her for a moment and suddenly thought, "This face would look awesome with Carol Marcus hair." So I redrew it, and drew it again, and again, until I got all the details right (side part, hair tucked behind one ear, etc). This is the end result that I did a quick digital color job on. It needs work--frankly the hands are terrible--but I'm really quite proud because I drew this without looking at a reference (and that is a HUGE crutch for me). Might seem like a small, dumb thing to be proud of, but here it is.
