Charcoal Sketch of Lucia.

Lucia (Conte 1710B charcoal on newsprint, 14x18").

This past weekend I had a photo shoot with an amazing model named, Lucia.  The photos are beautiful, and I'm very excited to start translating them into artwork.  Here is my first drawing of her.  After I've shot the photo reference, I usually begin with some charcoal and pencil studies so that I can get a feel for the model's personality and features before engaging in larger pieces.
