Just some more figure drawings. Using pastel on the last ones. I'm editing this post to include two recent drawings the latter of which is the barebones layout for a self-portrait.
This woman was the most awkward figure drawing model I've ever had. She kept looking at me smiling, so I drew her looking mad to compensate.
This project is not only going to be my first real drawing of myself but my first project in which I'm using custom-mixed inks. The general inks you get at the store just don't cut it anymore. I've painted out the basics and will be attacking the rest with my dip pen.
