I didn't have pencil or Charcoal with me yesterday but I did have my laptop and Wacom. I went to the session late and it was the last 25 minutes pose. It took 5 minutes to boot and I spent 20 minutes to did this one.
This is a brush people use it for traditional Chinese painting. Japanese called it Sumi. Usually the fur is long so it can hold much ink that we can paint a long line without refill the ink. I get chance to do some examination this time and I believe this is one of the hardest painting media but it is the most fun media too.
This was the first time I went to Digipen and I didn't like the lighting over there just like most of the life drawing sessions in Seattle area. People like to put strong spot lights on the model and we rarely look at people like that way, and the lighting is mixed with different kind of light bulbs. Some of them are very warm color and some of them are really cool color. It wiil be very painful to paint like that. Since this session is mainly for short poses so I did several drawings over there. I totally fogot my glasses and I have to fill the details which I could not really see in really life. :)
