Drawing with light

Some attempts at light drawing for my "something new for 30 days" in which i'm taking a photo everyday for 30 days. On day 10 I had a go at light drawing, here are some of the results. It was much harder than I expected but also surprisingly addictive.

I've mainly focused my drawing on people and never really attempted
to draw trees at all. So here's some of my recent efforts. I soon realised
adding the third dimension in there somehow was vital to a successful
and believable tree, but I also found it most challenging. I thought
drawing the branches, twigs and leaves was a bit overly tedious. Is there
a secret to it? I'd really appreciated any tips or advice from friends out
there that have experience with trees in particular!

Old guy on a wobbly train

I would highly recommend sketching on the train from
London to Cambridge if you want to free up your drawing!
Here is a quick doodle whilst doing exactly that.

Old man

A blocking pass for a short character test that I'm currently attempting using the Blik rig. The long term idea is to use the same rig to act out various other ages and emotions. I just wanted to share this to get some feedback before I go to far.

The rig below is called Morpheus and the one I originally started the test with. Unfortunately I had to drop it in favor of Blik due to my 8 year old laptop being a little to feeble to handle him. However I may still try some shorter dialogue or acting shots with him after getting more familiar with Maya again.
