Drawing texture is always interesting and mouths especially so. It's this particular mix of tongues and lips, along with the piercing that drew my attention. I want to draw a series of mouths. I started awhile back with a self portrait that involved a tongue. Now I'm spurred on to create more, this time bigger.
I did this study yesterday for a larger charcoal piece. I just can't get the tiny little glistening highlights on this graphite piece that so clearly show the moisture on the tongues but I know I can get this in charcoal - or at least highlights of white charcoal.
How well received it may be is anyone's guess. It all depends on the viewer.
