Comments by the artist

I was experimenting with a red pencil in these drawings. It's actually a big thick lead that you use in an automatic (clickable) pencil but I didn't have the pencil part. I just drew with the piece of lead by itself and I think it works better. You can get a lot more variety with your drawing strokes, even nice tonal ones by using the lead on it's side. you could never do that if it was held in a pencil. I think you can get these refills in different colours so I will try to find some.

In these drawings I made an effort to include as much anatomy as I could in the limited time available. There are some nice muscle shapes around the arms.
