5000 faces

keith johnstone mentioned drawing 5000 faces to get good at drawing faces.. i'm inspired. i've always loved to doodle, but i don't seem to value them as much as my oil paintings. maybe because they get hanged and make more significant gifts. but i've got the urge to sketch now. and i've rediscovered this fantasy/sci-fi drawing website: http://elfwood.lysator.liu.se/elfwood.pike

check these out:

I think Scott McCloud mentions drawing a face every day on a 3x5 index card until he perfected the art in _Understanding Comics_. If you haven't read it, it's fairly awesome.

I admire anyone who can draw any face, let alone 5k.
