Real Life Studies – 1

life studies pen


Life studies, oh boy! Drawing from life is something that every artist should do regularly, its one of the best ways to increase your skills and understanding of drawing as it makes you pay attention to the worlds details. With that said, maaaaaan is it difficult sometimes! It’s like exercise, it’s hard to start and might not be very fun, but once you’re doing it you feel better and the end result is always worth it.

This is *pretty* much all black ballpoint pen, though two of these drawings have some pencil shading in them.

Look at all these interesting folks! All these people were at the big mall next to the place I just moved into, food courts are one of the best places to sit and draw. I had a challenge of a very limited selection of pencil crayon colors that I had limited myself to which results in some of these unwitting models looking really cold. All of these were colored with pencil crayons and a mix of dark pencil and thin markers to outline. Also apologies if you can’t read what they’re saying, my writing is a wee bit atrocious.
