Post Two

I have a few to put up today.

This first one is a work in progress; im doing it for my own enjoyment and to hopefully have finished to put in a portfolio before february.
This is a smaller peice, its 9'' x 5'' i think with a two inch boarder on all sides. Its done in 2B and 5H mechanical graphite. When its done there will be more skulls of different types behind the figure (which is me) and i havnt really decided if i will have any solid shade behind me or just cast shadows.

this peice was done for my illustration class. We had to pick a superstition and illustrate it. I originally started with it was "good luck to run upon three sheep."
fox and sheep
When i started drawing it i was going with the idea that the foxes had the good luck of coming upon the unattended sheep and ate them. After i got the skeletons in i liked how the stacking of the bones and skulls was looking so i decided to change my idea alittle. There was another superstition that it was "bad luck to run upon a group of foxes." Easily enough it was just a mater of putting a few more skeletons in there and placing the foxes.
This is 10'' x12.5'' and done in marker, ink, colored pencil, and water for blending.

This last one is a little older. This was done early this year for my figure drawing class.
I love cross-hatching as a technique and think this is a good example of it. This is the model Alice, and it was done in india ink with a fine point nib. It's 20'' x 18''.
