Pencil Lines Done; Let’s Ink!

Enjoying a day off from pushing pixels, so I’m pushing a pencil instead. Here is the final line drawing for the second drawing I’m doing with my four-color BiC ballpoint pen.

Like the previous drawing, this is also of a wrestler. The beauty of drawing is that sometimes the idea takes on a life of its own. The original idea came from a crude shape scrawled on a post-it note. As I was developing the lines and details, “The Crusher” – a cheeky song by The Ramones about a wrestler – popped into my head and gave me the ideas for the final details and overall scope of the drawing.

Which, of course, is today’s drawing lesson: listen to music, preferably punk rock, and you’ll always have a wellspring of extra thinking onto your creative process!
