Shakespeare Drawing Update 2July 8, 2011
I’ve made it a little further along on this ink drawing, finishing up the area around his waist. I placed the pen I’ve been using (Uniball Gelstick) in the picture to help give an idea of the scale. From head to toe he’s about 27 inches.
I’m including a closeup of the knees to show how I build up the lines. At this point it becomes a matter of going back in and filling in those gaps with dots and short strokes to try and get a smoother tone.
