Shaunak - who loves to swim in chilly water

Would anyone like to comment on the "good things to do and the bad things not to do," while trying to convince a woman to pose for you (just the face, not even nude)? Assume that I don't know that woman and that woman does not know me except from seeing me in college.

Any particular approach that worked with someone else?

If it is in college you can easily doodle away during a particulary boring lecture. Of course it depends on the angle you are observing from for the effect.

DON'T sit behind her - strands of hair are difficult to draw.

DON'T stare at her - she's bound to look away, glance and sketch discreetly.

DO show her the end result - she is bound to be impressed (unless you have done a Picasso on her features). As I believe this may be the end result you are looking for.

Umm, your suggestions are not feasible.
I'm in SE (Second Year Mechanical Engg) while she's in BE (Final Year Comp Engg). Quite far apart.
Any other thoughts? (Although these would be very useful if she were in my class - I agree)

Anyway,
Cheers!!

Hey, do you have any suggestions with reference to the situation I mentioned? And no, I don't think I'll do a Picasso with her face smiley - winkeye
