A new portrait drawing, as you can see this was drawn with a regular ballpoint pen.
When I started off drawing this I wanted to restrict myself to drawing patterns of just five lines. The whole picture is just straight lines, no curves here.
However when I needed to get the darker shades I did need to crosshatch, for some reason whilst drawing those the phrase “five line waffle shading” popped into my head and stuck.
So here it is, a five line waffle portrait (it’s just crosshatched really).
The subject is Laura, another portrait artist from the Sketchy group. Hope you like this style.
