Thanks for the refs Joel - plenty of scope for us!:)

Continuing my quick sketches to improve sight drawings of figures! - both directly in pen, living with errors!:lol:
Both done on cheap coloured paper, 11"x7" but the feet'n'legs are cropped to less.
Each took about 35 mins - maybe 40, but no longer.
I did both from b/w prints - lost a lot of detail and information in the print-outs - duh!

I'm afraid the Busker looks more South American than African - hope he doesn't mind!:lol:

Wow -- just pen?! No pencil?! No erasing?! You are a brave woman. Love them both.

I love the row of legs and feet. I was just wondering what I'd be seeing with a title like that.
And the busker is just fine....his mom was from SA....LOL

Wow these are great. I love your shadows/hatching. So neatly done. Especially the first one. The blue paper adds a melancholic atmosphere.

Exactly my sentiments! These are great, Maureen. Ever since I can remember I have always admired drawings that just have those diagonal lines. Mine seem to be going all places :D .

Fantastic - more so because you drew them with no pencil or eraser to help.

Thanks!

Kudos to you for that! It's on my to-do list, too.
These are wonderful sketches. Love the legs especially.

A real capture of the buskers wistful expression, and the figure is beautifully proportioned. But the legs sketch was so unexpected and delightful !! Way to go, on both !
