Tempest - 30 minute Pencil Drawings

Every Wednesday I join a cadre of artists over my lunch hour, and do one or two drawings from volunteer models. When I first did this, I wasn't very good, because it had been literally two decades since I had drawn people from life, but around the 13th attempt, the drawings were good enough for me to comfortably show them. It's an erratic process, with most of the drawings feeling mediocre to me, but every once in a while, I get a likeness, or the composition is cool, or the line quality is energetic enough to please me. I seem to be getting better with every passing week.
