Study of a mummified head, which I drew in 2010. This is a graphite drawing on a ~ 5.5"x8.5" page. It's great to draw from imagination- which is definitely the most fun and self-engaging!- but in order to hone representational skills, it is 100% necessary to do studies; as did the classical masters. By studying what's in front of us, it's ironic that it teaches us a great deal about how we actually perceive from within.
Shipped from Tokyo in some next-level protection, with no spray fixatif, cuz that shit sprays away mojo. Much love~
