Day 131

This drawing went well with Tom Waits playing in the background. Not an important fact but thought I'd share. There are a few different techniques I used here. I kind of like the way I did the clothing. It's a very small part of the drawing but the simple strokes worked out well. I deviated away from what I had been doing for a while which was to start out with soft, light strokes. I did use them sparingly but instead of incrementally getting darker I just jumped into the darker areas. I also did not attempt to follow the drawing very closely; the preliminary lines were done very loosely and without any precision. Because of this I failed to capture the old man glare. Much of the drawing was done with just one pencil.
