Day 089

Pen on paper. Photoshop color. I think I do this type of drawing as a result of the "contour drawing" practice we did in school. Contour drawings, for those of you who are not art snobs, are drawings that are done using a simple and direct line work approach to depict the "contours" of the subject matter. There is no under-drawing or scribbling to get started... you just go right in and start drawing those contours.

Of course I can't help through in some "hatching" and whatnot.

I love the linework! This type of contour drawing I find has a much more "tactile" sensibility towards the subject, which results in... I have no idea what the heck I just said. Never mind...great stuff Albert!
