Ink is a wonderful medium to loosen up drawing! To this purpose I made myself a new pen out of a short bamboo stick. It makes uneven marks, very thick in the beginning, thin when the ink’s run out. I can also draw with it on its side to make broad bold marks.
These drawings involved a lot of contour drawing I noticed.
The close study for Assignment 1 was a lot of help. I knew what lines I wanted to draw and how. However, none of the first two looks like me. The one in blue ink is a better likeness. In all of them I like the quality of the lines and how they add life to the drawing.
These could possibly be me in my teens. I wonder what it is that makes the blue one look slightly older…
