When I saw the mugshots of the morons that plotted to kidnap Michigan’s governor, I had to draw them. (I know, I’m weird.)

Learning Loomis; Drawing Heads Part 1

This was the last portrait sketch I did before beginning on some intensive head drawing study. More about that coming up on my next posts, but wanted to get this one from over a month ago posted first. You can see the reference photo by clicking on my sketch on Sktchy here.
