"Being Loose in the Coffee Shop"

As I continue on my journey into looseness, some really interesting and fun things sometimes happen.  Such was the case with these two sketches.

The one of the bottom was the first, and the one that took the most amount of time in both laying down the lines and the color. Each person is represented in totality however, no compositing of multiple people to each figure as I used to do frequently.  

The one on top was a blast: both in the fun doing it, and in the speed of laying it down - the main group of four people in the middle in just over 4 minutes - really fast.  The other three people and the background were added afterwards.  Adding the color may have taken 3 minutes.
One of the fastest sketches I have ever done, and one of the most joyful to do.

Slower sketching, but quick enough to capture the whole person.

  1. Cool, cool drawings! I love the splash of color on the top one especially!

    1. Thanks, Nancy! These were fun to do, especially the one on top.
