Unfortunately. :D :D

This woman was so big (assertive too :D) ... I had to follow Richard Schmid's advice and draw what I saw, not what I knew! Nothing made sense. I had to compare shapes and angles ... and re check as I went along.

No time for shading this time! :D :D :D

18x24 Various times up to twenty minutes.

Hi Eric, I sometimes work really fast and am able to do more shading, however, not with this woman. I need to keep saying that many of these poses are ten, fifteen and twenty minutes, and at 18x24 inches ... not much time to do shading. The last ones were much shorter than even that.

I'll try to dig up a few where I was able to get in more shading and start another thread - warning, they are "rough" as the poses weren't any longer. I just work differently on different days. :D

what kind of pencil are you using (2b?), maybe charcoal?

it just seems light is all. not bad by any means!

i enjoy the thick dark lines of Degas and Millet. was wondering if you get that dark ever.

Eric,

No offence taken.

I use a 4b. Remember, the sheets are large, so it's a bit deceiving ... and photos don't help.

I'll start a thread with a few darker ones.
