Sketching with a no. 2 Pencil

I don’t usually like to do portraits. One mistake and you can take a Angelina Jolie look-a-like into a botched botox patient. Faces are finicky which is why I have avoided them for the most part. However, the band I recently did the cover art for need art for the actual CD itself. So I was forced to jump back into realism for their choice of CD art.

I had every intention of digging my charcoals out of the attic, but I started with a pencil and just couldn’t bring myself to stop. I knew I would be transferring images to the computer so I could go in and remove pencil strokes, turns out though they actually added to the texture of parts such as the hair.

Be aware, one image may be offensive to some. Paying customers get what they want.

A comparison shot.

I actually enjoyed doing these. I may have to try to do more of them more often.
