New Ink Drawing Started: Donna on Her Sofa

May 17, 2012

Pulled out a photo of mine of my friend Donna that I took a few years ago. Now is a good time to turn it into a drawing, so here’s what I’ve been scratching on for the last couple of days. I’m using a Uniball Gelstick pen on 14 x 17 inch Bristol paper.


Drawing Finished: Kayden’s Back

May 11, 2012

I’ve finished the drawing. There’s a mix of solid shading, lines, lightened erasing, and anything else I could use to get it all to come together. I used a hard lead in some areas but most of it is drawn with soft graphite.

Here’s a little more to show on the new drawing and a better image uploaded as well.

I’ve started also using a fine point mechanical pencil to tune up the lines some. I expect there will be more of that to come.
