Here is another sketch! This one is the most detailed of all the ones I’ve done so far. I used a quality nude photo from the life drawing book I’m working my way through. I’m really pleased with it!
The pencil lines are darkened slightly as I needed to lighten the background on my photo.
I’ve begun sketching again at my contract gig, and I didn’t realize how much I’ve missed it. I’m not sure who this is, but there may be a story about her somewhere in my head.
I also have begun doing some life drawing exercises because I’ve forgotten some of what I learned back in grad school. I’ve got a new project to start once I get the illustrated poetry collection out so I want to brush up my skills.
This is the penciled art for the cover of my soon-to-be-released free short story “The Cephalopod Maid”. The image has been darkened so you can see the line art more clearly.
