Coffee shop sketching again. Same bookstore chain, different location (rhymes with “hoarders”). Bigger place, but all tables taken. Had approximately half the time to draw as I did on my first expedition, but I got a good variety in these two sketchbook pages.
Starting on the 1st page, center figure. Sitting lady changed expression halfway through. I don’t care, I’ll draw her different body-language. Who reads a “coffee table” book at the coffee shop? Should have captured essentials first. Difficult to predict these “models”. Moving along, at the top left, a lady sitting at the exterior “cafe” tables, looking away. Top right, a short-lived expression. Right middle, young girl, head down tending her mobile. And at the bottom, the “coffee table book” reading lady’s companion. They looked happy about what they were doing. He was perched on his chair, leaned towards his laptop screen, staying still enough to draw.
Second page, top left, a girl appearing to be on a date. Center middle, this lady had a good head and haircut, (those are bangs, not sideburns). I may have tampered with her ethnicity, and maybe her gender. I think I mixed features from faces glanced while subject “hunting”. The lady with glasses is another example of mixed features. Right before leaving, I decided to cartoon’ it up. Bottom right, that same happy laptop guy using some of the “toon lines I enjoy drawing.
This, my friends, is all for this post. I’m working on other pieces, and will save and post some progress soon. For now, thanks for your visit. I really would appreciate comments. It can even be like, “Hey! that looks like my brother in law”, and I’ll appreciate it! Remember to have a great art time!
