I managed to get these drawings out in the past few days. Nothing spectacular but it's better than nothing at all. They came about as demos while working with students in class. Both were created with ball point pen. Lesson being that a non-erasable medium helps to build confidence in one's draftsmanship skills. Also some guidance in tonal rendering and a little Photoshop color on the second one to liven things up. I'm determined to get back to creating on more of a full time schedule. Hopefully that day will come soon.
