At Ringling!

Alrighty, I made it to Ringling and finished the first week. Now after a long hiatus its time to get to work. I met some really cool people here, had little sketch group sessions,saw a pregnant person get punched, and am about to start making a skeleton out of wire.

Nice work, Kevin. I'd suggest you think about reflective light more when shading your portraits.

To illustrate my point, take a look at this drawing by David Kassan:

Notice on the right side of her face, the darkest point of the shadow is not on the edge; it's in the middle. Reflective light is hitting the side of her face and making it lighter.
Same is true for the bottom of her chin.

You actually included some reflective light in your self-portrait, on the bottom of the chin. But the left side of your drawing doesn't include reflective light and it consequently flattens out a bit.

Just something to think about.
