I chose to sketch a face, and used a blue ballpoint pen and different shade of purple and blue watercolor to add some loose shadows. What I tried out this time for this sketch was to not worry about how accurate my drawn features were to the actual reference, making the process less frustrating and low pressure. I think it in turn allowed for a more relaxed final product. Im trying to work on realistic technique and facial features, and I feel that I ended up being pretty successful!

He was born on July 30, 1970, in London, England, and for over 20 years of filmmaking has gone from low-budget independent films, to constructing some of the biggest blockbusters ever made. At just 7 years old, Nolan began making short movies with his father’s Super-8 camera. While studying English Literature at University College London, he learned the techniques he would later use…
