Faire Peeps Pt.2

My first attempt at doing a digital picture all on 1 layer. This one artist I really like works that way, though it seems few seem to, and I thought, well, let’s do it. This is my paternal grandfather from a photo taking during his WWII service.


I’m sort of satisfied. I’m satisfied with the effects…the face still isn’t quite right. Maybe the darks are too dark. Definitely the spacing between nose and mouth is a bit off, but eh. I made it harder by laying down a light gray in the background before I started, meaning I couldn’t ever erase or I’d wipe pieces of the background that would be noticeable. So I had to paint over errors, more like traditional painting. Oh, and I couldn’t see the top of the hat. Process shots below:





Spring Girl – Tablet Practice

Barely used my new tablet, and realized I hadn’t even touched it in 3 months. This week I finally knuckled down for some practice:

Based loosely off an old photo I took. Figured out pen pressure controls, which are so helpful!

Omg, I could watch The IT Crowd all day! I discovered it in England, which was super lucky considering I was barely there. Who knows why it took me so long to remember it, but I may be slightly obsessed. (Why don’t they show this stuff in America?) Oh, who can help but love Moss? 🙂

And with this I learned that my new scanner still isn’t great at capturing pencil. Oye.

Real-life Mustache

Mustache man and fat, suspicious woman.

Ooh, I have so much to do before  Battle of the Exes comes on tonight!

Business Head-Shots

My new time waster – little caricatures of business proiles. 2nd to last is spot on with the hair and *way* off with the chin. Sometimes I acknowledge the presence of double chins too late in the process.

New project = live sketches. Quick, no thought or planning. Good to do while you’re waiting for dinner or something. The top is at Oh, Brothers and bottom  is outside Lillie’s Coffee Bar during art walk.
