Fiona, you really shouldn't - ahh this is a new one. I did like the small head neverthless, rather than the spike. Smashing tones and colours here, very good figure study.

Some super colours and highlights in this one Fiona, although I liked the one with the head (and the strong broad shoulders!)

Fiona, it certainly emphasises strength. With an inky flavour.

Derek, you've just given me a great nick name for my model....'Spike'...thanks! Thanks Gudrun, Jenny, you are obviously fond of the 'broad at the shoulders and narrow at the hip' type?!lol Thanks very much John, I think this will be the last. I've enjoyed the Quink Quickies but back to more serious stuff now...pity!lol

Lovely Fiona. Small head or spike - don't care.

Very strong Fiona, that ink has a lot to answer for.

I love the way the ink fishes and merges creating different effects .. Excellent

Great work again Fiona....

Your new streak brings forth good fruits, Fiona. You go toward Michelangiolesque shapes.

Fabulous tonal study Fiona

Many thanks everyone for your comments.....I've really enjoyed doing these sketches, who wouldn't?lol

Great contours and I like the white left for highlights Fiona, well thought out work.

Thanks very much Carole.

Excellent piece, Fiona, the tonal work is fabulous.

Hang on Studio Wall

Quink ink on cartridge paper. Just a quick re-do of the last quink sketch, without his head, and the shark (Stephen) and a little heavier on the shading, I think I prefer this one because of the heavier shading. My hand didn't shake so much on this one either...lol!
