To practice drawing lively faces I found it very effectively to draw from television shows. The best chances to see faces long enough for making at least a few appropriate strokes You'll get in classical talk shows. Ahead you can see my efforts capturing german politicians in the former sunday evening talkshow "Sabine Christiansen". At the top on the right you see the current german chancellor Angela Merkel with her bedroom eyes. Other faces for instance belong to the german Liberal Guido Westerwelle, the former Bavarian Chief Minister Edmund Stoiber and Peter Struck (SPD).
