A couple of contour drawings. The guy is from a photograph in a book and the pears were done from.... ta da, pears. Real pears. In fact, after I post this I'm going to have a pear and some toast for breakfast. (I accidently gouged a piece out of one of the pears and I figure I better eat it while its still good.)
The guy below was done totally "blind". No looking at the drawing at all. Okay, okay, maybe once but...but... look at that hat!! Thats what happens if you don't look at the paper at ALL!
This guy (below) was done by looking at the paper only when I needed to take the pen off the paper. (I put some watercolor to him, but I forgot to photograph him. It didn't turn out that well anyway.)
Here are the pears.
Okay, I'm off to breakfast.
