3rd entry for August 17, 2013

These are 15-minute studies. The top one is on an 18 x 24" sheet of Canson Recycled Sketch paper while the lower two are on the same size of Canson XL Drawing paper. These are done with Pentel brushpen and some lighter value Copic warm gray markers. I had a thought while drawing Amanda that day that because of her smoothly rounded forms, the challenge with doing a line drawing of her is that she only has about 12 real lines, mostly on her outside edges. Defining interior contours mostly through shading rather than contour lines seemed to work well.
I ran out of time for getting into darker values, and I find these still a bit washed-out looking, but with potential.
