It must experiment week, huh, because here’s something else that I’ve never tried before. The negative drawing. I’ve seen this on DeviantArt a lot and various places online. I always wanted to try it, just never did. The mood finally hit me last night and I had the perfect picture to use to make it simple, yet effective.
I actually don’t find drawing the negative space to be all that different than normal. It may end up being easier because it looks a little different, it’s easier to just focus on the tone and not the shapes and how you think the face should look.
So here’s the drawing. 9×12 inches. 4H, HB, and 8B graphite used.
