I've been trying to use a new tool every session, and today some letraset markers. I think I see potential to use it for tone but for line I'm not a big fan:
1 minute gestures (A4 size)
Longer poses worked better since I had the time to put in some mid-tones, I also had a few drawings where I started to push the proportions of the model a bit. She has pretty thick legs, and overall just very physical.
Also had a pose with a back....I just hate looking at a back with no dynamic lightning. So I tried some armstudies.
I really like the 2 charcoal drawings below, first one was really quick followed by a 10 minute pose. Most drawings that end up really bad are drawings where I start to draw the face...that's he reason I'm doing headstudies lately, it's an area I am not confident in.
I might continue a bit with charcoal, but I'll also be going back to pencil drawings and maybe some long poses to study the figure instead of focussing on gesture.
