Drawing Update: Greeting a Weary Traveler

June 8, 2012

Had to take a few days to try and earn a little extra spending money, but I’m back on track with this drawing again. Here’s the progress so far. This drawn section is about 6 inches square.


  1. Really interesting, the way you complete the drawing from the top down, with no sketched outline on the paper of the entire pose —
    wonderful drawing and technique…thanks for sharing!

  2. That’s not exactly the case here, Sherana. There is a large outline drawing taped to the back of this, which is how I often work on detailed ink drawings such as this one. I use a light table so I can see the outline beneath. This prevents me from having to draw pencil lines that I will later have to erase. All of the modeling here is free hand absed on the photo that I have in front of me for reference.
    I do like this slow reveal of the drawing as it progresses, which is why I didn’t show the preliminary drawing earlier. I may make a post later of that when I’m done.
