So I took a hiatus to do some practice sketches of other people's work in a bid to improve my ability to capture form on paper. I'm trying to improve body proportions, clothing, expressions, and supposedly this is a very good way to train.
This is a sketch I did last Thursday. The character on the left was supposed to be a girl, but I didn't know that beforehand. :|

|After uploading I realised it's not that his head is oversized, but his body is too small. Can't be helped, I had to visualise (incorrectly).|
The most challenging part was the hands in the extra long sleeves, which probably is a hint to practice sketching hands more. The hair was really fun to draw though, especially really messy and curly hair. :D
|Left guy looks like Ezio Auditore da Firenze, or maybe it's just the unshaven messy center-parting look.|
