Not Cosplay

Last night we didn’t really have a cosplayer, we had an actual medical student posing in her professional clothes/uniform and with her equipment.  And she has been a participant in our drawing group, when she had time!  So she’s both scientist and artist.

The 1-2 minute sketches.  She liked the lower one with hands behind back.  I also rather like the one above, head and shoulders, looking up, wearing glasses.

The 3-5 minute poses. The top right doesn’t look like her at all.  But the lower right is, I think, the best likeness of the night.

Next, 5-8 minutes. Lower one is done with my usual permanent Carbon Black ink, but I applied the waterbrush before it could dry to do some shading.

Lastly, a 10 minute pose.  Again used ink and then applied just a little watercolor.  Her white med student coat and clothes were mostly black, white, and grey, so I didn’t bother with more watercolor.  Not sure what happened there with the chin area… I guess an attempt at shading.
