My attempts to draw portraits of life-drawing models always seem to produce uncanny likenesses, in the sense of the Uncanny Valley. To quote Wikipedia: "The uncanny valley is a hypothesis in the field of human aesthetics which holds that when human features look and move almost, but not perfectly, like natural human beings, it causes a response of revulsion among human observers." These are drawn with charcoal pastels on mylar, which lets me erase and move lines. Changing a feature by a millimeter (at nearly life-size) can completely change the face - but never quite seems to make it look right. The top one is so scary that I had to banish it to the garage. When it was in the house, we'd catch a glimpse of it at night and terrify ourselves. Oh well, I guess I have lots of time to practice still before I get to the 10,000 hours that make an expert. In the meantime, the pictures are useful for scaring away burglars.
