I went to church this last Sunday with my wife. While the sermon was being delivered, quite expertly I will add, by a young man not long out of the seminary, I sketched this image tossed on the screen up front. I didn't get too many details from the sermon though because I wanted to get this down before they changed it to some other image.
The Bishop appears somewhat stiff; but that's ok because the picture was one of a statue rather than a real person.
Someone mentioned the moleskine isn't forgiving with graphite, so I tried another sketchbook when I sketched the "Skinny Model Girl," posted below. I wasn't pleased with the way the graphite scanned in that post, it looks like it is mottled, or pencil pointed in a pointilistic style: it wasn't. It was drawn just like the Bishop here was drawn with the exception of the Biship being drawn in my moleskine. I like the way it scans off the moleskine giving it a smooth, creamy texture.
