Underdrawing

For lack of anything better, I thought I would post an underdrawing for a in-progress painting. I did this yesterday in about 30 minutes. Through practice I am able to really leave out all the unnecessary lines and really focus just on the important lines and shapes that will give me the information I need for the painting.

Stay tuned for the progression.

The drawing looks perfect, maybe I would like it more with pencils on paper, but the strenght of your lines make the work.
By the way is good to see someone proud of his own talent and not showing a false modesty all around.

Great drawing David, you don't need much more than that to start a painting. Is this Putin?

Love this sketch! It looks digital. How did you get such a great pencil texture?
