Sketchbook: Frances Ha

Andy: So what do you do?
Frances: Eh… It’s kinda hard to explain.
Andy: Because what you do is complicated?
Frances: Eh… Because I don’t really do it.

I was re-watching Frances Ha last weekend and felt compelled to sketch this particular scene from the film. If you’re into oddball black-and-white movies about friendships and quarter life crises in New York City, then this film might be right up your alley.

Step One: Pen sketch of the two figures, followed by shading with pencil and adding details.

Step Two: Sketching the buildings in the background using pencil and a blending stump.

Step Three: Using sanguine (red chalk) to highlight and give the sketch a finished look.

In case you’re wondering, this is the art kit* I’m using.
