Leisure Suit in Pen and Ink


This drawing is almost bordering on caricature. The man steadied himself with a cane and so wasn’t terribly mobile. I thought he would present the perfect subject; interesting and not terribly active, so plenty of time to study and capture the detail of the facial features and so on. Almost as soon as I started sketching, my pen leaked all over my hands. Sometimes these things are meant to happen. Rather than stop, I just used the ink on my fingers to smear in the background and to denote a little texture on the suit.

    I like the pose in this one, Antsketch. The slightly turned head the belly, and the cane. Sorry about the ink spill but love the contrast it offered for this figure.
