Some more sketches from “Drawing the Head and Hands” by Andrew Loomis:
Here is another drawing copied from the book Drawing the Head and Hands by Andrew Loomis. I took pictures with my mobile phone of some stages of the drawing. The paper is white but somehow appears gray on the camera. I like the feel of the Hahnemuhle nostalgie paper in combination with charcoal pencils.

I then quickly colored the sketch with the copic markers in sketchbook. It’s amazing how fast you can turn out sketches with this setup.
