picard sketch Picard, Level 2: non-repro blue used as roughs for the quick Sharpie sketch. I don't like how this one turned out at all - he's frowning in the sketch, and smiling below: picard headshot Worse, despite being careful, there's no way to line up the head and features. This, I'm afraid, was another failure of measurement - an error in the "landscape". picard comparison Welp, back to the "drawing every day" board. -the Centaur

data as light-bulb head Super-quick Sharpie sketch of Commander Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation - I think this is from the rare lost episode "Tick Dracy in the Twenty-Fourth-and-a-Half Century" where Data plays the old cartoon villain "Light Bulb Head". I mean, man, this one is just awful, but, it's 2am, so I am going to bed. Drawing, not always well, every day. -the Centaur

Well, if yesterday was Picard Level 0, this is Picard Level 1, a quick Sharpie sketch based on the below headshot of a determined Captain Picard: picard headshot How did I do? Well, you can line up the head outline, or the features, but not both at the same time. Still, overall, not so bad: picard comparison Drawing every day. -the Centaur

eckener sketch Dr. Hugo Eckener, the "Pope" of airship pilots. Even though I carefully noted the angle of the head, I nevertheless tilted the eyebrows wrong - and even caught myself doing it. But, even though I saw the problem, and did some work to correct it, it was too late to recreate the fullness of the face: eckener headshot The comparison shows a 5 degree tilt and 10 degree horizontal squash, but, frankly, there's no way to make everything line up no matter how you stretch it, as the nose is misproportioned compared to the eyes, which led the dent on the face on the left side of the page compared to the original. eckener comparison Ah well. Drawing every day. -the Centaur

riker drawing Quick Sharpie sketch of Riker from Best of Both Worlds, Part I: riker headshot The comparison below shows that the hair and eyes are OK; the beard doesn't line up. riker comparison Ah well. Drawing every day. -the Centaur

masego sketch Masego from his amazing one-take performance on "Tadow" with looping artist FKJ. How did I do? Eh,  meh, it looks like I dented his face in compared to the original. masego headshot As usual, I missed the ~3 degree tilt of the head, and while dude is thin, I gave him a giraffe neck because I stopped measuring when I got to the shoulder section. Sigh. masego comparison Sigh. Drawing every day. -the Centaur
