These are really quick little studies. I've chosen a few to go back into with color, but that's mainly just to set a color scheme for a later illustration. I'm enjoying getting back into drawing the figure. I had no idea how much I missed it. 3 years is long enough to go without study of anatomy and figurative elements.
I've also been experimenting with inked lines and line weight in Photoshop. At first I found it very difficult to get a tapered line with a digital pen, but with practice, it seems to be getting easier now. I've ordered a new pen from Wacom. It's called the Wacom 6D. Evidently it mimics the feel of a real brush and/or marker. We'll see.
I also did a few "Mangaesque" head studies yesterday. I didn't want to go TOO far towards the Manga style, so I backed off a little with the one I colored and made it look a little more realistic.
