“Young Adults” Part 3 # 3 – The young man who loves to cook insects.

 

This is the last in a series of three ink portraits of young adults.  This young Japanese man is an expert at cooking insects.  I saw a video about him and was impressed by his knowledge, skills and enthusiasm.  I paused the video just as he was serving a plate of insects and looking really thrilled at what he had made.  His face was full of joy.  It was such a beautiful image, I had to draw it.

Here are my pencils…

 

And here is the final drawing, following the same technique that I used in the previous two attempts at this particular exercise…

 

With this drawing I worked quite hard to put this young man in his commercial kitchen.  It was an interesting place with many different tools of a chef’s trade.  This drawing turned out a little looser than the last one.  I think that gives it an immediacy which I almost like, but I still find my heart wanting tighter line work (even when I am actively trying to loosen it up a bit!)
