This is Ed. I sit next to him in Drawing. He's sleeping here. I had to quickly draw him as simple shapes first. That's what a figure drawing is. It helped me figure out how to get him to look proportional and to get the body language of him being sleepy just right. I usually don't like charcoal, but using it so much in the practice helped improve my abilities, so that's pretty cool I guess. I used shading to help show mass and volume.
