Drawing Club: Bonnie and Clyde


Kind of had a hard time getting into this character and figuring out how I wanted to handle her. The original plan was to brush up on my graphite drawing and after about half the session fighting with the reflective glare from the metallic lead I finally caved and pulled out something different. Ended up playing with various ink pens and still wasn't getting what I wanted. Then I pulled out the brush pen, oh yea, that combined with watercolor saved the evening. These came out a lot more effortlessly and it was much more enjoyable.

Model: Vikki Paschetto

Oooh! It looks like you had a great model this week!

Lovely drawings as usual :)

Thanks! She was very thin and tall hehe
In case you're interested, she was the same model from the Celtic theme from not too long ago, these older sketches look more like the actual model than the ones from last night:

Your style really reminds me of characters from the movie Triplets of Belleville (check it out if you haven't already) You've got a lot of dynamic personality in your pieces!
