So one of the things about asian girls is that their faces aren't very chiseled - so you aren't gonna get some of the shadow shapes that you usually do with white girls. However, you often get these beautiful notan shapes. With this model's dark graphic outfit and her sexy eyes, I choose to portray the model with the technique you see here. There was no erasing with indelible black marker. The characteristics of this technique was very deliberate, pre-meditated, slow, yet spontaneous. Every mark was very very permanent. An exciting and very fun way to work.
Venue: Dr. Sketchy's Anaheim. Model: Irene Yuen
Medium: Black marker on toned paper
I haven't been posting much on the blog recently. There is a reason for it. Going through a lot of change recently. Coming up I want to write a 2012 reflection and a 2013 resolution post. I know it's already February - but it's gonna be a very solid post - very well worth the wait.
