(From the top down) the first was from a small black and white photo of a man smoking. There was something about his look that was really intriguing so I thought I'd use it as inspiration for a piece. The second is a sketch of my mom. One great thing about holidays at my parent's place is that there are always people around to doodle. I also had some fun with the baboon image, i just had to draw him when I saw it....it's the super intense eyes....a little creepy. The last image is more narrative depicting the tortoise and the hare in Aesop's fable. I like how the sketch turned out so a final piece is in the making.
