Portrait Drawing with Paintology – Lineart/Trace approach

In this portrait drawing, I used the lineart and color to create the effect on this drawing. Combined with the traced image, the drawing has been produced with speed and any intermediate artist should be able to accomplish this drawing in under an hour.

Tracing method is an ideal way to get into portrait drawings where proportions are paramount to the final portrait. Every artist has a different way of looking at art and their proportions are sometimes skewed by what they see. In the traced method, you can see where your freehand drawings shifts away from the norm and therefore make the necessary adjustment. For me, I had a tendency to get the eyes and nose top narrower than usual.
