Sketching and more about my jaw

I’m having less pain from my jaw surgery every day, which is great! What does suck is the feeling of the nerves in my chin growing back. Sometimes it feels like I’m drooling, other times it feels like bugs crawling or pinching under my skin. I’m in it for the long haul though – feeling should come back after 3-4 months.

I’m finally pleased with my Paintings section of my website – they’re currently all available.

I’ve added my second sketch for Reddit Gets Drawn to this post. Quick studies can be very helpful when trying to understand facial structure, and often times it pays off to think about the relationship of lines. Proko has some great videos on how to sketch faces and heads.

It has been 17 days since my lower jaw surgery and today I went to the orthodontist for the first time since the procedure. They have changed the way my bands are positioned to help pull my jaw to the right a little more. I go back again in four weeks to have my archwires changed, supposedly. I’m doing well recovery-wise. I tire easily still, but I’ve had time and energy to paint and work on graphics projects for a friend.

 

I’m still working on setting up the website.
