That is interesting to me, however, I would get bored WAY before I finished it. As it is, 10 hours on these is too much :D:D

You don't need to make it at once, if you take the time I think you can make something awesome. :)

You're very welcome! :D I didn't know if you draw for fun or sell your work professionally? I'm trying to get a grasp on how much to sell my work for. Though, I have been told I cannot sell my work if I did not take the photograph that I'm using unless I get permission. Anyway, I didn't know if you had any suggestions for me?

I think it's just about what your time is worth to you AND will the client pay that? Look in my journals and see the one I just did on WHY I NO LONGER DRAW FOR COMMISSION. I have done it, but do not want to any more, and one of the probs was not really know what I could charge...sorry :D:D

ya it took a while to find the right compromise of time vs details. 6 inches hair line to chin is perfect for me. If close up, 3 inches from eyes to chin :D:D Thanks again

Thanks very much! I invested a little extra time in that one because it had so much detail, and I love Jack Nicholson, although he didn't look like himself, even in the reference photo :D:D

I just LOVE how you can include every wrinkle and crease, every character line in his still-handsome face, and yet not make them harsh or over-emphasized... :heart: I adore H. Ford's work, and admire him as a person, too--this is a stunning portrait. The contrasts are delicious, and add a wonderful intensity to the piece--it goes perfectly with that piercing stare, which you captured so very well, too... Amazing work! :clap::clap::clap::+fav:

Thank very much!! I guess it is a challenge? The scanner I just started using shows the details at least!?!? :D:D
Reply
:iconfalconfan:
FalconFan Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2010
Scanners can be a blessing and a curse: they can capture more of the detailing, but can also wash out the contrasts on the original...it's a love-hate relationship for me! ;) They're great because they can capture the piece flat, without too much reflection or distortion--but they can alter colors and contrasts... May your relationship with your new scanner be one of peace (there are times when I want to throw mine out the nearest window! lol!)!

And again...AWESOME work here!

How do you manage to get such dark tones with only a 4b pencil? or is it because of the scanner contrast? I'm just trying to learn :D:D:D

Doctor-Pencil Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I use a B or 2b, hold it sideways, and do small areas at a time, and I SCRAPE the graphite into the tooth of the paper, which by the way, should be a thick paper, like Bristol. Read the TIP GUIDE in my gallery folders. I explain it better there :D:D
