"Engage" -Gamer Portraits

Here are some non-comic pieces I've been working on recently. Ink and watercolour on pretty large (76 x 56 cm) sheets of paper. I havent done any proper figure or life drawing in ages so I'm feeling a little rusty. I dont play computer games much myself apart from the odd bit of Pacman, Tetris & MarioKart occasionally, but find gaming pretty interesting... watching gamers completely immersed in the digital environment, unaware of passing time or surrounds, maybe with the body contorted, teeth clenched or face scrunched as they battle Mr Dragon, collaborate with, or kill friends and strangers online.
