Drawing faces with Suzi Blu

I've started taking an online class with Suzi Blu, the lady with pink hair and the white feather hat. It's called the Goddess and the Poet, because we'll also learn how to write poetry to go with our lovely faces.

She's a lot of fun, and her instruction gets results. What more can one ask for?

First, we learned how to use a pencil properly . Holding it by the end rather than in a writing grip, and lightly. Then how to shade by applying many layers of graphite.

Here are my first few faces today. Amazing how the time flies when one is concentrating on a right brain activity. So wonderful.

She claims that the half closed eyes are more sexy, so that's the format we're learning....


  1. Nice faces. I think I'll experiment with holding my pencil by the end. I want to take an online art class, but I can't decide which one to take. You've taken Suziblu's classes before?

  2. I did the goddess and the poet workshop, it's awesome!

  3. Suzi was the person who got me interested in drawing faces. The class I took with her long ago was pretty girls. They were not as realistic as what you are drawing now.

    I really like what you've done so far, Sox,


  4. I'm not sure if I think those half closed eyes are sexier or not. But whatever, the faces are great!!

  5. That is great. Very well done. The faces look sleepy! Sherrie Roberts
