'DRAW-A-LONG' (With Me) - Part 5 - BeardsOK so last week I covered one technique for creating skin tones, as promised this week I am looking at how to draw the Ewan's Beard. Firstly I have to say that I treat beards in the same way I draw hair regardless of where it is on the bodyMore Like This
I have looked for short-cuts, magical solutions, inventive tools and spiritual guidance when it comes to drawing hair, and have only recently woke up to the fact that the only way to draw hair is by well drawing it! Yeah I know not much of a revelation but my eyes have been opened to the fact that you do in fact need to treat it as any other part of a portrait, it have lines, shades, tones and structure and as with a nose, ear or eye you need to treat each element in the same way.
I have produced a selection of step by step pictures to show how I am drawing 'Ewan's' Beard it only shows the right hand side, but is equally the same for his moustache etc.

Why Does God Allow Tragedy and Suffering?
The following message was delivered on July 22 by Christian author and apologist Lee Strobel, just days after the deadly theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado.
It was the worst mass shooting in American history – 70 people shot by a gunman, 12 of them killed, while they were watching the midnight showing of a new movie just 21 miles from where we’re sitting. There are no words to describe the anguish being felt by those who are suffering
