This takes me back to the days of Drawing II. Heh. Good times. I never liked doing portraits, but my professor said I should try it, I don't know what it is that bothers me. I think I like to be more expressive, and in portraiture it's more difficult to express anything but who the person is.
I know I've seen successful portraiture though, so perhaps I will try my hand at it. Sometimes I just forget to have fun with it.
