Practice with strange lighting

I've got so much to do in so little time! But I am doing a great job of not letting it get the best of me. (yippie) I am moving into my new place this weekend and then starting school the following Monday! I also am in the process of finishing up commissions before the school year starts. 

I was commissioned to make a logo and signature for a coworker at the school newspaper. 
Check it out!
It is a fashion and photography website. She has some pretty cool stuff planned, so I would definitely keep up with it!

This is little practice sketch that I did of my little sister from an old reference photo I took of her. I was listening to "Amie" by Damien Rice. If you haven't heard his music, I highly recommend it.

  1. The shapes are great. The line of her profile is great. And the lighting is interesting. Did you use reference for the lighting? Like, was she posed with light all over her face?

    1. yeah i took a photo of my sister with the light slightly below her, shining upward. i basically copied the photo as an exercise :)
