2nd entry for August 10, 2013

These are three 15-minute studies and a 20-minute one at the bottom.  These are done with a range of different 18 x 24" Canson papers all but the 2nd-last one have a light colour misting with ink. The top two are done with warm gray Copic markers and a black Pentel brushpen.  The lower two are done with Neutral gray markers and the Pentel pen's lines.
The study second from the bottom has a well-described figure, but an awkwardly handled face. I fell into the trap of trying to over-render facial details in black, rather than letting the mid-tone grays do the job more subtly.
The other three were better than average, in my estimation; now and then, with the best of intentions, part of a drawing just bombs.
