After July, Part 3

More obsessive portraiture. I'm not even sure I should do it this way but I guess I am - it's just me drawing without necessarily planning, which I suppose is good. Being obsessive like I knew I would, I'm constantly niggling and adjusting lines and shadows and shapes... I'm not even going for realistic feel, but I do want it to resemble the photo I'm basing it on.. Interestingly enough, the 'feeling' of the model is more important than getting a realistic likeness. I don't recall that ever being the case with me before.

I'm just a bit more than slightly obsessed with those lips and that chin.
