Drawing Human Figure with Ink

Lately I am looking in ways to abstract reality, to be able to tell a story in a different way. I love portraits and the human body, but I don't want to depend on how attractive is the person in order for my drawing to be appreciate by people.

In these portraits I used a twig and ink to draw the figure. The challenge was to draw with less lines and still get a recognisable image. It is difficult to find the balance. I added some washes of diluted ink and some marks with red pencil.

Here are some of the results. You can see the other drawings in this flickr album
