I have been using a new set of pens this week, Staedtler Pigment Liners which range from 0.05 through to 0.8mm. As they’re smaller than the pens I’ve used previously it has produced a very detailed drawing with lots of fine details. This has changed the pace of my drawing and it’s taken a lot longer to complete than previous pages.

I love that I have been able to combine lots of previously seen elements, such as the fractal-size background, in a new way. It’s hard to believe that it’s taken me until week 31, over half way through the project, to draw my first full face. This idea of drawing lots of  compositional elements into the hair is something that you would see in my portfolio of paintings but I think it fits very well with this project. As time goes on I definitely feel this project and my art portfolio starting to converge.
