Sketching from “The Twelve”

The Belgian TV Series “The Twelve” is an interesting courtroom drama. The plot unfolds as told by the accused, the victim’s family and each of the twelve jurors. The show is moody and dark and the actors were all interesting to look at. I took photos from the TV since Netflix doesn’t allow screenshots and then sketched from them. 

Below are the reference photos and the sketches. These are all around 11 x 14″. My goal was to capture the correct angle and structure of the head and hopefully a likeness. Once I got to “good enough” I moved on to the next. I wasn’t trying to do finished drawings.
