I have never been much good at figure drawing, and this is further evidence. However, for the one year anniversary of Drawn Town, I decided to dive right in and sketch the guest of honor. The lighting was intense, and the shadows were moving fast during the event, so I’ll use that as my excuse for the lack of subtlety. Yeah, the sun was in my eyes, that was it.
For full disclosure, this was done with a plain old “2B” pencil, and then I gave it a slight sepia bump in Photoshop. Here is a link to see what other people came up with.
