Just a quick (okay, it was quick for ME) video about putting some rough ideas for October down on paper.
I feel the need to state that I can in fact draw faces and other poses, this was more about getting rough shapes down and talking through current ideas.
Also – I’m trying (with medium levels of success) to work on periods and styles I’m less familiar with. Which means I’ve been using more references than usual to try and get them “right”.

Youtube likes to mark my videos as ‘not suitable for all advertisers’ because its algorithm is broken. Ad revenue doesn’t cover material costs for most projects featured in videos; much less a wage for the time spent filming and editing.
