Yep, I’m still kicking. Scanner problems continue, hopefully that will resolve soon.
Anyways, these are from a Charcoal Club session a few weeks ago….I’m on a new sketch book, which means, at least for the next 20 sketches or so, I don’t have colored paper anymore. I’ve gotten absolutely addicted to using colored paper so I can then add highlights in with a white pencil. Going back to plain white paper has obviously thrown me a little off…….basically, my “hand” is now conditioned to draw and shade with the expectation of adding in the highlights last……..but if you do that with white paper, without any planning (since basically all you’re doing is leaving negative space), it doesn’t work out too well.
I pretty much hate the one above…but this isn’t a gallery, I try to put up the good and the bad, so there it is.
