3rd presidential debate sketches

A couple of more sketches I did during the debates last night for the Washington Post.  Here’s the link to the slideshow.

    These are gorgeous sketches–even though the subject’s not. Are you drawing with ink over blue line? You can bring a line to life like no other.

      Yes, for these sketches I’m using prisma non-photo blue and graphite pencils with pentel black pens. The grays are a combination of Faber-Castell brush pens and photoshop for the large areas. I do use brush and ink for my animated and print editorial cartoons.
