"Nothin' gonna break my stride"

 Fashion Illustration Shoreditch

I went back to Paper Dress Vintage last night; I hadn't been for about five months. The top two took less than a minute, and the last was posed for two minutes. I want to prove the point that intense, prolonged concentration doing observational drawing, regardless of the subject and the medium, has an incredible knock on effect across the board. Having spent three weeks of the summer recording in ink the urban chaos that is Arequipa, another pay off showed when using a pencil for figure work. Quicker, better line quality, and getting proportion right without having to measure it out. Simples!
