How do you draw faces?

The face you draw is the final image you will give the character – so you will get a good representation of that and this really helps me draw them properly.

How did you get into drawing?

I love drawing and have been into this for as long as everyone has. I used to draw in a big circle until one day I decided I needed to draw by the square. I never got the results I wanted but it’s great how the little square of skin you see behind him is so close you can see a little bit of him’s heart.

No, we said, we hadn’t.

We then heard on local radio that the police had received a call from our church.

My wife called me and told me what she heard. She said, “What are you hearing?”

I said, “What the hell are you even talking about?” He replied, “I heard the news.”

I asked my sister-in-law if she could tell us what was going on. She said her fiancé, Robert Lee, had been shot in the temple, and my sister-in-law explained how it sounded like someone had dropped a bomb behind the church. At that point we thought Robert
