    I like the black range on those standing figures. A little Easter Island.

      Thanks…I think when I was drawing this, I violated just about every lesson I’ve ever had about shadows and highlights matching up in a logical way with sources of light…and yet, I like sort of illogical things, so it’s okay. Of course, if and when anyone ever finally lets me teach this stuff, I’ll teach the logical way first, ’cause it’s still good to know the rules, that way you can break them better. Also, I definitely used to love the pen-and-ink drawings of Easter Island figures and other old statuary I’d see in my archaeology textbooks…so much so that I changed my major back to art just ’cause I was always so distracted by the illustrations instead of by the facts and theories. Although I like those, too.
