All are a Pitt pen on 18 x 18" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper.
As usual, it takes at least a few poses just to get into a working groove, but i was more warmed-up, having been drawing on the Monday as well

The top four are also Pitt pen on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper. The lower two are a couple of types of water-soluble graphite pencils on watercolour papers. The 20-minute one is on an 18 x 24" sheet, and the bottom one is on an approx.11 x 18" sheet.
I have moved away from the graphite in favour of the warmer, broader-valued `oomph' of inks and Inktense pencils, but had revisited the watercolour graphites in some demos for a Haliburton workshhop and was enjoying it.

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.

The top four are Pitt pen on 18 x 24" sheets of Canson Recycled Sketch paper. The next one is a liner pen and Derwent Inktense pencil shading on some inexpensive Japanese paper I had on hand (not so keen on the look of that.)
The last one is Derwent Inktense and a fine point Pitt pen on an 18 x 24" sheet of Canson XL Series watercolour paper. So the last two studies have essentially the same materials, but what a difference the paper makes.
