A Quick Look Inside My Sketchbook

Yes I purposely made the title rhyme. No I am not ashamed.

I'm one of those people that has phases. By that I mean I'll get into something, be obsessed with it for a few weeks, then forget about it and move on to something else. This happens all the time with my so called 'art'. Every now and then I will spend every second I can drawing, but then something will stop or distract me and picking up a pencil again won't even cross my mind for months.
Apart from the small sketches I posted the other day, I haven't drawn just for the fun of it in what feels like forever. But I thought I would muster up the courage to share a few older portrait drawings I did throughout 2014. If I'm being completely honest, I didn't take photos of the worst ones, but doesn't everyone put everything they post on the internet through their own personal 'will this make me look good' filter really?
My favourite subject matter when it comes to drawing, or just art in general, is quite simply 'people'. I just find it so fascinating how by adjusting one feature in your drawing, even very slightly, you can change the character and emotion completely. In particular I love drawing eyes. I could honestly spend all day just drawing sets of eyes.
Anyway I hope you like them, and that the abnormal length of Benedict's face doesn't offend any potentially present 'Cumberbitches' too much.
