Day 58: A Day of Commuting

Commuters 1I really did draw today, just like I promised.  I sketched quite a lot actually.  I went into town again and was out all day which allowed me to see lots of interesting people and get interesting sketches.  The only problem is … I was out all day.  By the time I got home I was totally exhausted.  So I’m really tired right now and as a result don’t have much to say about these sketches or anything else.

So yeah, I saw lots of cool people.  I tried to draw them all stealthily like and for the most part failed horribly.  Quite a few of them weren’t looking at me and the ones who were quite often shifted and moved around a lot which made them really hard to capture.  I tried to still get across a general impression of the people as I saw them.  Some turned out better than others.  I did six pages of these in my sketchbook so I’m posting the rest below.  I’ll keep working on my life drawing skills so that hopefully I can get better at these for next time.  For now though, I’m just going to go sleep.

    1. It’s definitely great practice. The worst is when they notice that you’re looking at them and start giving you funny looks and shifting around more. I think I need to work on my stealth sketching skills.

      1. Lol. Oh dear, not the stink eye from an old lady. I would have withered under that. I like to just assume that I’m being paranoid and people aren’t actually glaring at me when I think they are.
