FUCK Hairspray!

I keep seeing, over and over again, that people are suggesting to use hairspray to fix their art from smudging. That is the ONLY THING IN ART that crawls under my skin.

More Sketch Cards

Tools:  Faber-Castell pencils and Schoellershammer paper.  I used several brushes and a kneaded eraser.  The electric device is an eraser, but I changed the eraser head with a small piece of kneaded eraser.

These are the sketch cards created during my 2 hour Twitch Stream today.  I would love to see some familiar faces when I stream, so come give me a follow and you can get notifications when I go live.

The reference is from a a DeviantArt photographer.

Initially, I was going to recreate the graceful elegance of the dancer, but my hands had other ideas.  I don’t know what changed my path, but I am kind of glad it did :)
