Yep, more life drawing!

Nice life drawings! I'm curious - are just using a graphite pencil and smudging with a finger?
The shadow cast onto the abdomen looks like it might have a light marker added onto it or a touch of wash. I'm just getting back into life drawing myself and a bit curious with what media you are using. I appears you have a nice solid light source shining on the model... Thanks! Jim

Thanks man!

You're right - this particular drawing is all smudging :D I tend to use a 7 or 8B or even a conte pencil. The smudging is a fast way of blending and softening although everytime I do it I hear my highschool art teacher saying "all youre doing is leaving a smudgy mark on the page!" :D
