Since moving to California, which has been about 9 months now, I've been studying portraiture. The bottom two newsprint drawings were done in 2 hours with instruction from my teacher. I'm still learning the different planes of the face but the latest challenge has become rendering with charcoal. The top drawing are studies of women from a magazine. Influenced by J. Scott Campbell and Tom Richmond, I've always admired how these artists can make women look sexy. This was my shot at it, taking a little bit from what I know along with their expertise.
