Split screen

Need a little portrait practice? TV debates are a good choice because the faces are in the same position for a long time. NB: If you want to listen to someone who has drawn Trump more than once, check this out on CBC.com. It’s Anna Maria Tremonti’s interview with Doonesbury cartoonist Garry Trudeau who has just launched “Yuge!”, a compilation of many years worth of his Trump-related cartoons.

    I also thought this might be a good exercise….after the fact. Maybe I’ll try the next one if I can bear to watch another one!
    You really captured Trump’s mean eyes. (Well, it’s true!)

    I have done several sketches during the primary debates. They are all fast contour drawings. Rather comical. TV can be a good way to practice portraits tho. I agree that you really got the look in Trump’s eyes

  5. Good idea and good job, but I don’t think I could look at him long enough to do a sketch. lol
