Getting Sketchy

For the first time I tried out life drawing digitally. I think it's great! You can expand the canvas while you draw and it's a little more approachable to do value study drawings, which require a little more set-up if you want to work with oil paints, for example. However, it's a little harder to be deliberate with line--I think I end up with sketchier drawings. Then again, it has been a while since I've done quick sketches, so I could just be rusty. The line drawings are from 5-minute poses and the value drawings are from 20-minute poses.

This second sketch is a landscape study I did to get some practice in for my next illustration, which is landscape-based. I made a second one that I managed not to save, unfortunately. At least I got the practice in!
