Practice drawings at Doctor's waiting room

While waiting at the Clinic, I was able to practice my cartoon portrait drawing approach with a variety of subjects of different ages and gender. Started with a couple of quick graphite sketches using a leadholder.
It was a tad difficult to get the arms down since this subject kept fidgeting and changing his posture.
Used my trusty Sakura Pigma Sensei 0.6 mm and 1.0 mm Manga drawing pens to sketch this older gentleman comfortably seated across the room.
Had a good view of the receiving desk and this receptionist from my seat in the waiting room.
Chose to draw this pleasant lady and young girl with the water soluble Caran D'Ache Technalo 3B lead and partially blended the pencil marks with a waterbrush.
Even when aiming for a stylized cartoon style, remember to practice your sketching skills by observing live subjects whenever possible. Always carry your sketching kit and some paper or sketchbook so you can take full advantage of any drawing opportunities that would otherwise get wasted simply waiting or getting bored.
