Ink and graphite, 9 x 12 on 111 lb, Canson drawing paper. This is the second in my Priestess series. The first was an ACEO ( trading card ) sized drawing. I decided to take this series to a larger scale. The figure drawing photo I used for a base sketch was provided by Live Model Books. A big thanks to the photographer, the website and to model Valentine for providing the pose.
I strayed just a bit from the model photo. Due to the texture I use in the body, I needed to move her arm just a bit, so that the staff would not interfere with the figure, and end up blending in too much.
