Red cap at the Forbidden City
There were a few men standing around outside the entrance wearing red caps watching the crowds. Sometimes tourist groups wear these so they recognise each other but the men I saw wearing them looked like they were there to keep on eye on everyone.
I wasn't that inspired by the reference I used but quite often it makes a better drawing than a photo, and it was still interesting to do. There are a few things I'm not that happy with but I don't want to work too much on this as once the face is done I tend to lose interest. I've blogged about the process and the pencils used on my other blog, Sketches by Fiz.
