Another sketch session in the books...
This one was tough. I just wasn't in the mood and my tools seemed to fight me at every turn... the conté crayons resisted the paper surface... and the poor lighting situation made carving out the figure difficult. Boo hoo. Still, some decent work came of the effort... it is just too bad that I didn't get better drawings of this model. She had a very dramatic figure and small fluted waist compared to her shoulders and hips.
A 10 minute up top, followed by a few 1 and 3 minute drawings... and punctuated by another 10 and a couple 15 minute attempts. Even the less accomplished ones teach me something.
Better luck next time.
