Odd Fellow Meeting 05/21/13

This Tombow ink drawing was done at an Odd Fellows meeting. I managed to get this done during the meeting time.

There is a really nice texture created by the lines I used in this piece. The rhythm of the crosshatching is very nice. I also drew a very nice expression on his face.

Zwick Studios - Burnt Umber

I was unable to go to Zwick Studio this week thanks to a previous engagement. However last week I did get pretty far into the Burnt umber of the painting. I am pretty happy with the pose and the figure.

I am thinking of doing more with the rest of the picture then what was presented in the still life. I need to do some research, but I was looking for legends about woman near bodies of water.
