-HB/4B woodless pencil
-90-120 minutes (while watching a movie)
-did a layer in HB (not a quick sketch)...shaded in 4B, gradually building the contrast

Let me be the first to say, great stuff! One comment ~ I would try to make the linework a bit more even and smooth ~ Barcsay has a great smooth sketch line, and it's a great thing to emulate. Glad to see you working on anatomy studies! Thanks for posting this


Also, for anyone who is interested, check out this CHALLENGE going on!:

Agreed...I got lazy with the linework. The next thing I post will most likely be cranky and old

Hey all

My FIRST EVER attempt at drawing a human skull anatomically. I thought I would do something people might actually be able to recognize first! Reference from "Albinus on Anatomy" - a book that Rebecca recommended and I bought a few days ago. The medium is "good old Biro" in my sketchbook.

Will be posting more anatomy related images as I attempt to draw them.

Nice work! I'm really happy to see you doing this ~ it's a GREAT exercise!

Do you mind if I post a little something about linework / cross-hatching a bit later on?

Thanks for posting this!

Hi RebeccaK

Post away on the cross-hatching/linework stuff. I know for one that I'm interested in what you have to say!

I think I'll post shading / cross-hatching stuff to go along with LESSON 003. Thanks for the encouragement!

Still lovin' that style! It rocks! Animal skulls are tres awesome...I visited a natural history museum once in Rome with lots of animal skeletons ~ incredibly creepy, but in a good way!


More great work! This thread is shaping up nicely. It's great to see so much cool work!
