Skinny Minnie: Non Poses

Perhaps I'm spending too much time in coffee shops, but this is another one I did while sitting in my usual "watering hole". This gal was standing at the counter waiting for her drink, but I don't remember if she was actually that skinny or not. You see, when I'm drawing people from life like that, I try to be sly about it, mainly because if they realize what I'm doing, they either become self conscious and stiffen up, or they ham it up and start posing for me. All I'm looking for is the everyday slice of life, non-poses, I guess you could say. So, I usually just grab the skeleton of the pose quickly, and then move on. Odd as it may sound, I'm not drawing the person really, just the pose.

Have a great weekend.
