By the end of this session, I was mentally finished with this drawing. Conté’s tricky because it’s very difficult to erase, and things get muddy if you layer too much. So I had to let go of the mismeasured stuff and just focus on coming out of there with a rendered drawing that was good enough to stand as a “technical study.”
I did a few drawings like this in college, so this was really a chance for me to compare where I am now with where I was then. To be honest, not much has changed in terms of skill level / observation.
