Adam Stiff - Squash and Stretch 2

These looked halfway decent before I compared them to the originals. I think I tend to focus too much on small areas of the drawings, which leaves the proportions pretty close within a given area, but they become wrong relative to the rest of the drawing. I need to look more at the total form of the drawing.

Just for fun, here's an old lady being punched in the face. A rare cleaned-up drawing:

The more I look at those drawings of that girl I never met (below), the less I like them...the construction is fairly sloppy. As impressed as I was with her mouth, I managed to screw it up and put it in the wrong place, at least in the center. Pretty sure I dorked up the noses too. Something to work on.

El Girl

I saw a girl with some sexy-ass lips on the el train when I was in Chicago this weekend, and I wanted to draw her, so yesterday I tried to see what I could conjure up from memory. Problem was, I had been drinking, so my memory was impaired. I dunno how close I got, but accuracy aside, these aren't horrible as drawings/sketches. (These have been composited after the fact, by the way.) I might possibly be learning something about construction.
