Sometimes it is just fun to go off on tangents during live model sessions and experiment with different styles, techniques or media. These three pieces above let me explore certain ideas that had been rummaging in my mind for quite some time: graphic novel, multiple takes of the same pose and fantasy illustration. It goes without saying that some kind of reference is always needed when trying to get a pose or look just right. It is impractical to always use live models, hence the brilliant utility of the photograph. These studies give tremendous insight into how to approach the work in this fashion in the future. Waiting for a Grey Hound is in graphite, Duel Natured is in colored pencil and Micheal's Lament is in charcoal.
