Strathmore 400 Toned Tan Sketch Paper Pad...

   I got a commission this month for a portrait sketch. After 6 failed attempts and 5 coffees, the rust was off and the portrait was done. I had forgotten how hard it was to just draw in pencil and get values.
  

While at the art store, I needed a new sketchbook and decided to try something new. I'm going to focus on my shading and sketching skills for a bit.

Beginning with Pan's


I pulled this piece out of retirement. I've decided to change some of the body language and add some background elements. Tons of finished art is on the way.
