If you want really good cheekbones you have to move a little closer to death. Our painting teacher went into the storeroom during our last class and brought these two guys out for me to look at. I had drawn a woman who he said, “Looks like she has the mumps.” In attempting to describe the outside profile of her face with line I brought them forward, flattening her face and completely neglected to bring her cheeks forward of that. Just look at these eye sockets! The structure of the face is built to accommodate the features. We need to talk about this.
