OP #96 of 100

This is supposed to be Paul Byrom. I've figured out why my portraits have been looking like stretched out caricatures--I'm working flat and my reference is vertical (the monitor). I've suspected this, but what to do? 4x6 inches is too small to prop up. Yea, yea, sketch bigger. When I'm sketching, I don't pre-sketch, else it wouldn't be a sketch, would it?
All that said, Paul's face really is long and so is his nose. It's long and thin. He has an amazing voice, classically trained, he's got fantastic range and he can project!
Crosspost to artsomofo & the wetcanvas's OP forum, I think.
