As promised I'm posting my portrait for class this week. Black and white Conte crayon on brown paper. Our prof suggested we wear our Halloween costumes in the portrait. I went home and grabbed a load of my recital/competition dance costumes from my senior year of high school. I settled on my tap trio costume and wig from my Roxie Hart costume. How does it stack up against the "real deal"? :)

I was kneeling on a chair on one knee and balancing the drawing board on the other knee. You can imagine how comfortable that was (*hint* not very).
[edit] My prof made a few suggestions and I re-did the portrait. It turned out nicer/more lively, but unfortunately I couldn't get a pic of it before I turned it in. Hopefully I'll be able to get it here soon.

Black & white Conte crayon drawing on brown paper. It's been awhile since I've worked on paper that isn't white, but I like how this one turned out. It's a little incomplete, but for the time we had it's pretty fair (probably should have sketched a quick mouth but oh well). We have a portrait due for next class so perhaps I'll post it if it turns out well.
