For this quick torso study, used the charcoal brushes in the iPad Procreate app. The Procreate brushes and its customization provide a good simulation of traditional media.
From life drawing workshop, 25-minute pose study, polychromos pencil. Always a good exercise to measure a foreshortened figure.
Exploring the Charcoal & Conte media in Painter 12. The Real Hard Conte variant on the charcoal paper gives up a nice texture. (“Badu” is a rescue cat at the Friends in Felines Rescue Center which is featured on Ustream. I’m completing an iPad painting of her which I hope to complete soon.)
Enjoying life drawing workshops to hone drawing skills. Not really comfortable working with charcoal so I default to my favorite Derwent drawing pencils.
