One of the drawings I did today. I always found Jack very charismatic, so I wanted to see if I could capture his mood in a drawing. Done in modified blind contour drawing – meaning that I drew it ‘blind’ but allowed myself to lift the pencil when appropriate. Drawing ‘blind’ makes the artist draw purely on instinct, and it works remarkably well when you need to do a drawing that has alot of life or emotion.
The piece was done as a fun study, so there are parts that I’m not all that satisfied with, but I decided to leave it as is. The main goal was to capture the emotion, and at that I was successful.
