A Couple of Drawings

102608-2 Howdy there. Here's a couple of drawings that I did this afternoon at the life drawing session at the AVAA. I had some toned paper lying around that I hadn't done anything with for a long time, so I used that. It's always fun to work on toned paper because the paper becomes the mid-tone and you work in both direction from the middle value. This is different from regular white paper where the paper is the lightest tone in the drawing.
They came out alright. I like the portrait better, although for some reason it looks religious. I guess that's the dramatic effect of covering most of the paper with charcoal.
