Man with messy hair

This drawing done at a Starbucks shows one of the problems of drawing in a real life situation. You can see in the video a few drawings done of people who got up and left before I could finish. It is always a  drag when that happens.

As I review the video I remember how I struggled with getting the back of the head right. It isn’t just the distance behind the ear, the shape of the hair as it lays against the head is important as it gives clues to the correct contour. This fellows hair was thin and limp and laid close to the top but being long in the back had more bulk. Anyway I did have fun drawing his ear a few times.
