fauns, nymphs, and eyes

This is actually a rather older sketch, done at the beginning of the month. I was in part inspired by the work of this one artist, Arnold Bocklin, namely his fauns/satyrs and nymphs. I hope to embellish these two.

I've noticed that my eyes are all starting to look alike and losing some of their expressiveness. Okay, all parts of my faces start to look alike, and poorly so. I'm working on improving it, and part of that is doing studies. Studies can include doing copies of artists you admire, so long as it's to learn how the artist did it. Right now, I'm doing eyes (I like doing eyes). Below are studies from a Bargue plate, Joseph Sheppard, and Sailor Moon studies from Naoko Takeuchi. Expect more over the next few days, moving back to real eyes.
