Most who know me have comfortably enjoying a particular fashion of my drawing. The following is the sample.
I have achieved this with a brush pen and masked the area which I watercolored within. It accentuates the facial features like a spotlight. But for this final session, I was trying to change the fashion using a parallel pen. The following is the outcome.
The whole experience of using parallel pen and minimum coloring allows me to complete each of them in about 10 minutes. Surprisingly, even when this technique took me away from my comfort zone, I could managed it with a good speed. Overall, I love the edgy strokes, a little sketchy, which match well with minimum coloring. My personal intent is never to draw in detailed and close-resemblance but to capture their essence of the moment and some slight resemblance.
It was a wonderful way to round up the calendar with some interesting experiments and challenges for portrait drawing. In the new year to come, I will continue to explore more.
