Benedict Cumberbatch. Going back to the white bristol paper, just to see if I could work with it again. I can, but I don’t like it as much as I used to. *sigh*
Mats used: Staedtler Pencil 2B, 3B, 6B and 8B (wich is actually Carbon, so very dark but waxy) , Palomino Blackwing pencil and General’s Powdered Graphite on Canson Mixed Media XL White Paper, (11X14 )
all of this year’s FINISHED rob pieces throughout the year, spanning from may to the end of december
so, my original passion in art was painting–the first thing i ever painted was a musician, and i think that was in 2010? i always did impressionism, but once i got into digital, i was so intimidated by every program that no matter what i did, no matter what artist i watched, i just couldn’t convince myself to do anything in a big, high resolution.
but this year i FINALLY found it. i finally got it again. and, i don’t know what it is, but rob’s just my absolute favorite to paint. it might be familiarity that helps me know exactly how i want a piece to look, or capture, or what be it–it could be the music aspect, and how you can hear so much personality in the vocals, which makes me wanna translate it to visual?? no clue. but he’s been my go-to when things are a little rough
i really appreciate this guy,
so maybe this is just the best way i can show it (´・ω・`)
In the category ‘might finish later’
I’m super sick so I can’t do much besides sketch.
The many faces of Sherlock Holmes…..Some ended up looking better than others …..
