People as Silhouette Shapes

A while ago I spent a day or two sketching people as silhouette shapes.

In comics, the readability of characters depends a lot on their overall shape and the differentiation of those shapes among characters.

Drawing real people this way helped me see a bit more about how that works.

I used the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and a little journal which I don't like much because it doesn't take watercolor at all.  But it was perfect for this.

This was part of the "Sketch 100 people in five days" drawing challenge.
