Day 63

Day 6 of the "24 Hour Sketch - Halloween" series. PSYCHO!!!

It's one thing to look at a photo of someone screaming for their life but to sit down and attempt to capture that in a drawing is in a whole different playing field. It's f-ing creepy. Albeit this is an actress and she ended up being just fine. But right here and right now I'm giving props to Janet Leigh. She tapped into something. Her eyes have absolute terror in them and the drawing is really missing that. I just could not capture it. Maybe partially but not wholly.

I'm also gonna add here that my least favorite thing about this Halloween series is that most, if not all, of the drawings I'm doing are from recognizable photos. And I've butchered every single face yet. It's absolutely terrifying!
