The inspiration for this portrait was found via the app sktchy. I was drawn to Mlle’s photo due to the unusual angle of the pose. The photo was taken with the camera well below her face, so much so, that her chin and neck where prominently displayed in the foreground of the photo. Her head was turned so that only her left eye was visible to the camera, this restricted the main features of her face to a profile view only.
The angle and perspective was a bit tricky to work out. It’s not perfect but, it is acceptable for a sketch. I encourage you to check out her inspiration photo, I have provided a link below.
