Robert Pattinson aka Edward

An unfinished sketch of Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen in the Twilight movie. This time, I approached the process from a purely shape angle, instead of looking at it as a human face. By squinting my eyes and focusing on the lights, mid-tones and darks and drawing the shapes of each, making sure they are in the proper place in relationship to each other, the sketch came together much more quickly. . . and by far, more accurately than the other method. It's almost like laying in puzzle shapes and if you are measuring correctly, they fit in place and in relationship to each other. Now to refine it and put in the facial details, clothing and hair.

What a neat way to sketch. I seriously would love to take lessons from you. I still like your sketch of Edward better--HE IS EDWARD!
