Day 248: The Girl in the Black Kimono

A Woman in a Black KimonoIt’s nice to have a bit more of a focus for a little while.  I’m enjoying playing with shading for a change.  I also actually did do this sketch at a pretty reasonable time of day despite how late I’m posting it.  I was just procrastinating on typing out a blog post to go with it.  Does that still count as progress?  I’m going to pretend it does.

The reference photo I used for this sketch was another random Something To Draw photo, submitted by Teruhide Tomori.  This lovely woman in a black kimono with white face paint was just too tempting to resist.  What better subject could you hope for for a study in contrast and shading?  This was definitely a really fun one to work with.
