This is an in-class project for one of my Illustration classes. The project was to
capture extreme mood. Thankfully I'm blessed with at least one willing friend to
play model for me. I asked him because he can be very expressive, as you see. I'd
say this "extreme mood" is disgust/disdain. I did have this hanging up for some time in
my studio, but who wants their friend staring at them with that expression on their face. ^_^
I drew this on cold-press strathmore watercolor paper (120 lbs. I think) using graphite,
copic marker (colorless blender), and denatured alcohol. We were given three to four sessions
that were each about three hours long. So this was completed in about nine to twelve hours.
