The Stranger

The Stranger, an old black and white drama with Orson Welles and Loretta Young. The dramatic backlighting in this scene barely outlines their profiles. Paused it and sketched first in pencil then Micron pen. Filled the background on the computer. Just for fun, I sometimes use online movies for life drawing.

I prefer the sketch without the black background. Maybe I'll play with a sepia wash. Wanted to post this as a break from doing the views of Mt. Fuji series.

I like the white background too.
And THANKS so much for the lovely E-card! :)
