I experimented more with the pastel pencil over the past week. It's been a little stressful with the semester ending, I'm finally going to graduate. So I took a little time from class work to sit down and just draw something. Of course, I drew a tree folk...sorry (not really). Trees are just interesting, they have interesting shapes that can be molded into faces and distorted anatomy. Plus it's always fun to play with texture.
I don't often share my non-illustration work, but this still life does connect to illustration in a way. For my Drawing 2 class, we had an assignment to draw a still life with drawings, paintings, and objects in a single image. The assignment leant itself as a way to document my current work in a non-photographic approach. I collect the objects and proceeded to create a composition. Pencil rendering isn't something I normally do, so it was a challenge to cross hatch the piece.
I figured I would share work I don't normally create on my own time.
