Pen & ink drawing

This was for my 2-D Concepts class to study"deletion". It was my third try because I spilled white paint on the first one cleaning up mistakes, and then spilled ink on the second one. Third time's a charm!

We took pictures from magazines, rubbed graphite pencil on the back, and then traced the images onto illustration board. The whole thing took a lot longer than I originally thought. At least 5 hours (maybe near 7?). I have a vague idea because I listened to several discs of DVD commentaries for Family Guy/American Dad while doing them. Sounds weird but I like having them on in the background because I don't have to pay too close attention to know what's happening on the screen and it keeps me from getting bored as opposed to having complete silence.

All in all I like it. Very time consuming but somehow relaxing/fun.
