The Face

I haven’t put up any art in a while, so here you go. I was surfing DeviantArt one day over the holiday break, and came across a beautiful photograph of a face. It had strong lines and shading, yet felt soft somehow. I decided to try to draw it because the angle was really interesting, so this is the result. I got lazy with the nose and eyebrow, so they look really flat.

I know it’s uber-grainy; I took a photo with my shittacular cellphone camera. Maybe some time later I can actually get it scanned. Anyways the photo was really light, so I just sharpened it up a bit in Photoshop, and I unintentionally gave it a skin-toned hue, with fades at the top and bottom. I swear I have no idea how that happened, but I like it. Except the graininess really bothers me, AUGH!

  1. I am curious to seeing the original image that inspired you to draw it although it is usually quite common sense to not post up the reference pic

  2. Thanks Mike! Jo, I can’t find it on DA anymore =( I would’ve actually thought it’d be common TO post the reference pic… oh well.
