2nd entry for June 8, 2015

These are four 5-minute studies at top, and a couple of 10-minute ones below. They're also a pigment liner pen on 18 x 18" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper. By the end of the session I was getting back into more of an accustomed drawing zone. The lower two did have some fast pencil underdrawing, which for me helps a lot with taking care of proportions.
Also, facial features I find much easier to delineate if I have set down a general layout of the person's head. It takes a lot of pressure off of the need to be descriptive of features while creating the head all in one pass. the downside being that each preliminary mark takes time out of the available time for a pose someone is holding.
