Portrait drawing (take 2)

I took another class on portrait drawing to get some more people practice (who doesn't). The same instructor made the skills practice a little easier and the steps more concrete. I really focused on going light and taking my time--two things I need a ton of work on. 

We had two models for two weeks at a time--polar opposites: an older lumberjack and a young, hip woman. 

A few nights were a struggle but I was persistent and plowed through the "I don't wannas". Some hardcore hip-hop seemed to do the trick too. Something about Lil' Wayne yelling at you makes you want to push on.


INKtober is a monthly drawing challenge that was started by an artist: Jake Parker. It's a pretty simple process: draw in ink, every day, and then post it online for all to see. He even includes a prompt list for inspiration! I did keep up with every single day except one drawing I started in pencil on a friday and inked in on saturday--but who's counting. 

Below are a few selections from INKtober.
