Sketch Sessions 1419-1719
Although this is the first post of 2019, this drawing isn't the first of 2019. The first project of the year was created for a specific audience and it's totally NSFW. I may post it here at some later date whenever I created a separate area for that type of work.
This project was created for more blending practice with a focus on hot press paper for smoother results. I was also inspired by her eyes and facial expression. Various pencils were used (3H, B, F) as well as a bit of charcoal and a hard blender with high pressure as opposed to a smoother, softer blender. A lot of time was taken working on the skin tones, working on dark paper, adding light. I like the contrast of it and even though more light could have been added in key areas, I like the look of this as is.
