Another image for the project I mentioned in the last two posts.
This is done in ink wash--the objective was to draw a spontaneous looking portrait that could possibly be made with found wet media and whatever might be at hand. I used a sort of crappy brush, but the idea, in this case, was that the drawing was supposed to have been done with a napkin and coffee. I've never tried to paint something with a cup of coffee, and I imagine it would be hard to do, but this is more of an idealized version of what that might look like.
I won't go into the specifics at this point, but the mood of the piece is meant to be somewhat eerie. It's rare that I get to do something this expressionistic for an illustration, so it was refreshing to be able to paint this loose, and not have to be too fussy about it.
