Grad with Dad, 2014, graphite, 7 x 8.

This is graphite on card stock. That was done rather quickly and it kinda turned into a caricature (Sorry!)

Here's where it all comes from: Just graduated with a honors degree in biology, and I love this extremely dignified picture with my dad!

Baby in pola bear suit, 2014, pen and ink, 5.5 x 6.

Crayola crayons were used for extra effect in this sketch/drawing.

Redditor caught posing for the camera, 2014, pen and ink, 6.5 x 5.

Sketch/drawing done with a Frixion pen. I think I went a bit crazy with the neck area. I could have taken it easier on the nose and I am very sorry for that.

Stern looking dude, 2014, pen and ink, 5.5 x 4.5.

Guys are usually easier to draw than gals because their features are much more angular and you can get away with a lot. This was done rather quickly with a Frixion pen (can be erased but kinda leaves a yellowish mark).

Redditor looking very old school Egyptian, 2014, felt tip pen, 6 x 5.

This is one of those 1 minute sketches that kinda look cartoony when all is said and done. Even has a nostalgic Tutankhamun look to it.

Mother and child, 2014, graphite, 6 x 7.

This is a graphite sketch/drawing on card stock. I don't particularly like card stock but I have got a whole ream I've got to use.

Redditor in bordeaux tee, 2014, graphite, 6 x 4.5.

This is graphite on card stock. I used an HB and a 2B .5 mm mechanical pencil to make this masterpiece.

Kittenbasher's mom, 2014, pen and ink, 6 x 5.

Quick sketch of a redditor's mom in pen and ink. I went through three sketches before that one so even though it was a quick sketch, it was not a quick process to get the deed done. It's super loose and very approximative, which is really what I like to do. If you're interested, here's where the reference photo comes from: Draw my Mum?

Wild redditor in its natural habitat, 2014, pen and ink, 7 x 8.

I don't usually do figure drawing but when I do, it's a wild scene like this one. Not too often that you encounter a full profile pose on reddit, so kinda had to do it. The photo reference comes from The one and only picture of myself I enjoy, sitting on the side of a mountain. Would be humbled if someone was willing to draw me.

Redditor looking at your soul, 2014, graphite, 6.5 x 5.5.

Yeah, this one is quite angular. Too bad I didn't pay that much attention on how I rendered the eyes. My hope is that it was done in a hurry (Sketch scanned just now but actually done quite some time ago and I don't remember the circumstances.)

Redditor with glorious beard and deep stare, 2014, pen and ink, 5.5 x 4.5.

This is true pen and ink with a fountain pen (Waterman). No erasing, no second chances. I like to live dangerously.

Redditor with head tilted sideways, 2014, graphite, 7 x 5.5.

I usually don't go that dark when doing a portrait, so something must have gone wrong, which happens frequently.

Redditor with large glasses looking cool, 2014, graphite, 6.5 x 5.5.

Quick sketch in graphite (HB pencil).

Redditor smiling in lace dress, 2014, pen and ink, 6.5 x 5.

The appeal of pen and ink (for me, at least) is that it allows for a rather loose drawing. This one is still on the stiff side as the lines are not exactly flowing (They are a bit forced.) I don't like to pencil the lines and then ink the outline since I don't particularly like to draw something twice. I don't know it just doesn't appeal to me that much, so I go straight with the pen and hope for the best.

For full disclosure, this sketch was done with a Frixion pen that allows some light erasing. So, I kinda cheated on this one, eheh.
