Morning Commute Sketch: Multiple Exposures/Time Lapse

The train was surprisingly empty this morning. Sparse as far as interesting subjects. So I decided to try and emulate a film technique.

None of the people in this drawing were there at the same time.

I start my commute from Dunn Loring almost at the end of the Orange Line. Many people get on off during my long ride into the city.

I fixed my point of view and then as soon as a passenger came onto the train and stood in a zone of my picture frame, I sketched them.

Eventually by the time I got to the end of my ride I had managed to populate all the zones of my picture frames with different people.

Very much like a time lapse meets multiple exposures.

Hard part was trying to keep their distance from me straight and accounting for overlap and perspective.

I didn't get to do any rendering, but really like how this "composite" came out.

Photos from my morning commute.

Decided to shoot on the fly. All shot by hand, no equipment, other than my iPhone 5S on the way to work.
Entire shot done in about 10 minutes waiting for my train.

Didn't go to work today, so no commute, and no commute sketch.
So here's another sketch instead.

RETURN OF MY MORNING COMMUTE SKETCH!

I discovered a new sneaky way to sketch people on the metro.

Use their reflection in the train windows! It creates this weird effect of looking into the train from the outside.

Drawn with mechanical pencil with .3 H lead and No.2 pencil
All drawn freehand, no rulers or tools

Do you ever get off the train, Mr. Yi? :) That's a joke in case there's a language barrier on my part. Nice sketch.

MORNING COMMUTE SKETCH!

Had the idea of practicing some rendering (shading) using no crosshatching. That took a while, this posting in the morning.
