warrior portraits

I’m very proud of these drawings. Pete used the word warrior to describe one of the early ones and that felt correct to me. They’re steely, strong and expressive, and the lines feel smooth and methodical, soothing, but they’re also imperfect.

My favorite two are the shades of gray with blue eyes and fierce expression, and the soft, sort of old fashioned portrait expression with the purple bun (number 2 and 4 in order.) I wish I had simplified the colors in number 8 because the expression is intense but overwhelmed by bad color choices.
