Shaking off a few months of self imposed rust (cough cough – 22 inked pages of Painted Ladies of San Quentin done in 23 weeks!!) to get back an anatomy/figure drawing session with our new model, Cristen, at the Art Alliance.

I was really bummed with my first few quick sketches, but the last hour long pose of her in a reclining resting position turned out really well.I was really happy with the hands and torso.  In addition I caught some really nice skin shading to go along with my Patrick Nagel inspired hair.  I also think I did Cristen’s tattoos justice as well!
