Practicing drawing elderly skin,
The wrinkles on the left cheek as you look at it were very difficult, i tried and tried and although it looks like the reference photo i am not happy with it. There are 3 wrinkles which form a kind of triangle and they are very deep.

Hi Abbie, nice to see your work again.  :wave:

Even though those creases are very deep and dark, I think all they need is a bit more softening along the edges to create that deep "looking in" feeling.

Overall this looks great! Love the eyes from the ages, great work there.  O0    :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Abbie,

I think you did a very good job on this.

Despite the irises being two different sizes, they are deep and mysterious!

You are really getting good fast.
