life drawing session #2, frantic lines in pen and ink

So this week I used pen and ink. As it would turn out, my black ink is almost gone and the replacement I bought was actually white ink (not useful in this case!), so I used the brown ink I had on hand. I liked the sepia look so much that I think I'll try it again.

I'm a little rusty with pen and ink, but I think there were a lot of neat little things happening in most of the drawings.

I think this was the most successful of all the pieces:

like the figure on the left more than the figure on the right, and am annoyed that one of them is proportionally larger than the other:

This was a neat little moment, part of a larger image that had little else good about it:

I dislike the shortest poses, but this piece below was a nice little procession of gesture poses across the page. Torsos elongated.

wish she had held this one longer:

Her longest pose:


  1. I like the sepia ink as well and agree with the first one being so well done. I have never liked the long poses but rather shorter and more gesture. All are great!

  2. Thanks! I can't wait to get to work on pen and ink again.

  3. That's interesting. I love to see how other artists sketch. Thanks for sharing.
