Life Drawing with 2bornot2bcollective

 I have been digging into materials I purchased years ago and hardly ever use anymore. Next in line were the conte pencils. I believe they were purchased for a life drawing class so I decided to use them for the virtual life session with 2bornot2bcollective on Zoom. These sketches were created in a small handmade sketchbook.
