This time around I tried again to draw in a slightly different way than usually. The change of techniques is obvious but I also tried to force my hand to move the pen differently almost every time. The time available certainly varied from 15/10 minutes in the gray ones and 5 min in the rest. My "style" is of course visible still but in some of these I think I succeeded. The model is the same in every drawing but her slender look is really portrayed only in couple of these.
My favorites are the ones with the green tint. I think they have a certain playfulness and almost a flirting quality at least when juxtaposed with each other.

Good to be back ;)! Actually I should be doing stuff but I'll give the good ol' in-out for the blogi and be off me way.
So croquis it is after a while. Towards the end of the session I tried to keep it simple. The color blotch is a warm up drawing that I did on top of some water color remains from the burlesque session...
Next time I'd like to go to a bit more traditional in the sense that I'm gonna pick up some charcoals if they haven't already crumbled at the bottom of the drawer.

Last night I attended the Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art-School featuring Miss Sugar Kane (FIN), which was part of the first official Helsinki Burlesque -festival. So it was drinking and drawing a beautiful woman, what could be better! The mood at Dubrovnik (the bar) was inspired and fun.
I think I should have stylized more but they turned out ok. After all, Miss Sugar Kane went through the drawings and picked mine as the one to win the men's festival t-shirt yay :)!
The "winner" -pic is the one at the bottom of the first layout and those on top of it are a warp-up drawing (mind model :) and some of the fast first ones with Miss S. Kane. I myself do like the middle one of those with it's baby doll -face even though it's not "accurate".
Thank you very much to Mira and Saija for inviting me!
