I’m really happy with the way the gasmask drawing turned out. The glass eyes were difficult to get right, and I was starting to get the plastic feel of it right, but it needs more time to get it right. I don’t think it’s as creepy as it could be, but I think that it that could be fixed with a background/some context.
I’m also pretty pleased with my drawing of my coat. while unfinished and lacking in some places, I feel I managed to nail the depth and texture of the fabric in others, particularly in the top left of the drawing in the part around the button.
The last two drawings I found difficult because I couldn’t get the proportions right. It’s odd how the more perfect the shape, the more awkward it is to draw. I spent too much time on the proportions, so didn’t get time to add much, if any, texture.
