Illustrating a Comic Book Poem – Faces – 1

For Faces -1 I knew that I wanted to depict a sequence of panels that presented portraits. I also wanted to return to using pencil. Therefore I found a load of reference material (online and in books) and used this as a method to depict the faces. This was essentially an exercise in developing portraits and using traditional media.

I liked the fact that we were telling a story just using facial expressions and text. I found a variety of different images as reference and decided to depict a wide selection of facial expressions and emotions. As Faces is a mini-series, within the Comic Book Poems project, I will be looking to present more emotions and faces in the future.
