Man in Puffy Jacket

Usually, the people I draw have settled into a quiescent state. The occasional change of position of limbs are easily accommodated, and makes for an interesting and dynamic portrait. Sometimes however, there is a major shift in position that is more difficult to incorporate. The underlying sketch of the subject’s previous position is hard to ignore. Using bolder lines for the new position runs the risk of obscuring the original sketch. Ideally, both positions should be equally presented, allowing the viewer access to either one.
