1st Grim Reaper Study

I'm working on drawing a really cool grim reaper. This is a practice drawing of the head. This is not what the final pose will be. It's just a straight-on, full face study, with some hood drapery. It's not perfect, but I didn't want to take too long with it. I can do drapery & shading better than this. I had a very good time drawing it. When I finished I was shocked it was 6am. I lost track of time. I feel like I'm finally starting to make real art instead of just being a human camera. I haven't drawn in a long time. I'm glad I still have my talent & can still draw well. I think I'm finally gonna push to the next level of art. I drew the outlines with a hard pencil and then I shaded everything with a set of Faber Castell Pitt pens. I have the 6 color set of greys. I think I will buy the set of 12 grey shades. I need more shades. This drawing looks better in person than in the photo.

Good job! A human camera? Is that like me telling myself I'm an artist, not a photocopier? lol

That looks good.

I like the Faber-Castells. They're pretty smooth gliding.
