Some texture and depth

I pencilled this in February, I think. I used blue line pencil and really liked the look of it. But my pencils were incredibly light, and I could not scan it to show off my fine, fine work. So I inked it, recanned, and posted. The post title comes from the various patterns I used to create texture (crosshatching, stipling, lines, herringbone) and the depth created by the positioning of the subjects.

I was also playing around with a new brush pen I had... the original really shows some nice brush work on the foreground subject's eyebrows and lashes.

Otherwise, there isn't much of a story here. The two men are in suits, but the woman is dressed in a t-shirt. Is she a hooker? Probably not with that headband and '60s bob. The men are sad or barely happy; whereas the woman exudes joy.
