    1. How they looked today.
      Thank you
      In the poses, the drawing, or what’s observed in the aftermath, once the frantic stabbing smears, erasing and scribbling, has time to rest☺

  2. Really contrasting contemplating poses:calm and straightforward. I feel here we able to predict their characters and answers to problems.

    1. I agree. I’d guess the contemplation in orange is calm, with less stress. “ST” in the second is much more likely to end in some sort of break.

  4. Thank you
    The characters.. They are everywhere floating in private worlds. The secret, maybe the fear, is in the exposure not kept safe, hidden in maybe not so obvious thought.

  5. That is exactly what I thought when I first saw these...secrets.
    Hidden within these great sketches, a story is brewing.
    In each, there is a sense of holding back...of hesitancy.
    The overall impression is powerfully electric...:)

    1. Your are very perceptive. A story is brewing. These poses I’m sure will be recognized in future versions of the stories they are holding inside☺

  6. I like the way you have etched out the mass of his body, beautiful shades of grey.
