And now for something completely different
I got totally juiced after seeing Olivier Kugler's work this morning. Thank you very much Laura! So I decided to try my hand at a similar technique. I loved how deliberate the line work was in Kugler's drawings. So I did this portrait of my nephew Tom. Rather than my usual sketchy pencil, back and forth wavering, I drew with a very deliberate line. Not lifting the pen from paper until each path found it's end.
When the pen and ink drawing was complete I scanned it and completed the coloring in Photoshop with a Wacom tablet.
This was so much fun to do. An experiment for me, which is always good...
Here's the original drawing:
