Big Head Drawing

One of Lapin Barcelona's assignments for Sketchbook Skool was to draw Big Head portraits similar to his style. He draws using live models but I didn't have a model at the ready so I used the following photos for reference.

These are my daughters (yes, artistic and creative souls). This is the set up they staged for a Halloween Trick or Treat night outside my house. I live in a huge stone house that appears "castle-like" or "haunted"...take your pick. So it was the perfect backdrop for this Halloween magic. They did not move. They appeared mannequin or doll-like. A child would approach to look closer and maybe reach out to touch when one of them would move. The child would scream and run off. Perfect Halloween fun!
