Today I found myself sitting at my desk, making faces into Photo Booth. Surprised! Scared. Ecstatic! Worried.
I'm sure it would have been a comical sight had anyone witnessed it. But comical or not, it was more than just a way for me to sit around being goofy.
You see, I have been sketching faces a lot lately in preparation for a new project. And that requires faces! I'm usually a "draw what you see" kind of artist, so I needed to see expressions in order to convey them with any semblance of accuracy (and confidence).
Here's one of my little practice sketches, to prove how goofiness really can be productive.
