Drawing Final: Woman with Folded Legs

September 27, 2015


Done… for now. I’m still deciding if I need a shadow on the wall cast from her head, but I’ll get back to that later.

Well, I’ve finally gotten all the wall lines drawn in. I need to continue evening out the tone so it’s not so spotty. I’m not sure if I want her to cast a shadow on the wall, so I may draw a digital test of that to help me decide. Next I’ll work on the bottom front of the sofa, adding modeling and darker values, and that should wrap it up.


Some Old Figure Drawing Sketches

September 22, 2015


Still working on the back wall of the new ink drawing, but there’s nothing much to post yet, so I thought I’d dig out a few old figure drawing sketches to keep it active here. These were drawn with wax crayon on 12 x 18″ newsprint. I should have a new update coming on the ink drawing in a couple days.

I’m starting to get the sofa drawn in with its base values, and added a small pillow on the right to give the composition a stop on that side. It will have a darker gradient tone from right to left, and be darker on the bottom… eventually. I had to give my sore wrist a rest yesterday.

The figure is now all drawn in. That was the hard part. The rest is just a matter of drawing the large gradient values of the couch and wall.

I’ve started inking the figure. I discovered that black ink in the Uni-ball pen I’m using matches the PITT markers have, so I can use a PITT brush tip marker to fill in the solid black areas and move things along faster.
