Frida

Two Caricatures of Frida from last night - Copic markers & white charcoal



Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Testing my new Copic Ciao markers. Just got a 36 pc set (purchased a few more additional colors). These are a shitload of fun!!! I had a great time drawing/painting these three little portraits.
I have a feeling I'll be using less and less photoshop for coloring, Copic markers are way more fun! :-)

Indy - my first test

Nathan Fillion - aka Richard Castle. Love watching the series :-)


Stana Katic - this girl is crazy beautiful!!! The likeness is not too good, but nevertheless, I had a great time draing this one

Some sketches from these last few weeks..

Seems like when I draw from imagination, I tend to make the eyes always the same, need to do a whole lot more eye studies ..

 

quick charcoal sketch, no refs

messed up the eyes - sanguine on toned paper


a messy sanguine + acrylics portrait. A photo of Maria Mena was used for ref at the beginning, but I totally lost the resemblance at some point..
