This graphite drawing of a Cherokee Fancy Dancer was started today as practice for a painting. Yes, it is the same Fancy Dancer I've been trying to sketch for quite a long while. The eyes in the reference photo I am using isn't very clear, so I am more or less winging it. I need more practice drawing eyes. Also, the darks of his hair and the paint is almost as dark as the paint on his right cheek but was washed out because of the lighting.
Yesterday, I completed the sketch for the YOP self-portrait painting that is due the 20th. Now to get it transferred and painted.
