Figure Drawing in Graphite
Last night was a little rough for me at figure drawing...I don't know if it's allergies or a cold, but man, I was WIPED OUT. I was going to work in pastel, but since I was spending most of the night sneezing, I opted for a less dusty media, graphite pencil.
These are on 11" x 14" white sketch paper, using just a standard #2 pencil.
I haven't worked with graphite in a while, but I think it worked well here, and I don't do a lot of blending - I like the crisp lines to build up in layers.
