preliminary drawings

This is some of the preliminary work I've been doing for a painting of my brother. In these drawings I'm working through the idea, composition, and mood of the piece. The room underwent a few changes as I was working on the drawings which changed the way I was imagining the piece. These are all graphite on 8.5x11" paper.

This was the composition I decided on. However, after painting a color rough of this composition, and not being completely satisfied, I decided to go back to the drawing board.

These are the drawings that followed.

I will post the completed composition soon.
