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

My presentation at the Apple Store in Berlin

I have to thank Michael for the nice pictures and Binod for accepting to pose as a model for a portrait.

First I talked a little about myself an my travels

Then I talked about ten tips to draw portraits 
At the end I did a portrait with the iPad Pro and Pencil

And here you can see the video

Tausend Bar

I won't tell you where the Tausend Bar is. You can look for the address on internet, but nevertheless with out somebodies help, you won't be able to find it. It is a secret, one of Berlin secret places. When you get inside you get surprise but a very elegant futuristic atmosphere like a James Bond movie.

And there in the darkness was Miss Natasha Enquist singing,

 I had my last day of my dry twig workshop and I was still in the mood for that technic. The music and a mojito helped me a lot.

Omar paints Odeon Platz

I arrived to Munich a little early for the second Germany Urban Sketchers Meeting. With a few hours to kill I went walking and stopped to draw the Odeon Platz. It was a good idea because the Sunday when we went back there was a street festival on the square blocking this view.

Let me know if you like the video and what do you want me to record.

Music: "Weltgeist by Miss Natasha Enquist.

Omar paints Miss Natasha Enquist

So finally I am using my new go pro camera. Here I had the opportunity to draw Miss Natasha Enquist.

It was suppose to be a digital drawing with my iPad,  however she is just a great model that I had to draw here with different techniques. This was with pen and watercolour, but I started with the watercolour first. Enjoy and please give me some feedback of what subjects you want me to draw.

Model/Recording Artist: Miss Natasha Enquist

Omar paint Iah Moontra

Recently I bought a go pro camera to record the way I paint. Here is a time lapse video I did last week.

This group Iah Moontra is really amazing, they really transform the space where they play...very Berlin in some way.

Here is the final drawing:
