Marker—Quick Studies

Just some quick studies in marker and pen of my friend's fabulous, fashionable aunt, from some wonderful old photos she allowed me to use as reference.

I really love working very fast, blocking things in with marker and then scribbling in some detail with pen. I'm not wild about the marker fumes, though. *cough*

Daily Sketch Challenge: Reese Witherspoon

Quick entry for the Daily Sketch Challenge Group on deviantART. (The challenge was to sketch Ms. Witherspoon's face from provided photo reference.) I nearly didn't do this but managed to find a few minutes to enter--I am finding it far too easy to do everything else but draw these days! Must change that.

Pencil Portrait Commission

Pencil on Strathmore paper (which I wish I could find more of; it is the most gorgeous , responsive paper...a joy to make pencil marks upon.)

Pencil and ink wash.

The actual paper is much whiter, but I liked the warm-toned background of the scan so I left it that way...

More Scribbles

...from recent 'Sketch & Kvetch' sessions.
