more of 2.5


freeman_eyesThis is my last post before the  final finished piece.

At the rate i’m going (2h/day give or take), i should be done by July 15th. I’ll try to whittle it down to one piece per month for the next one (any ideas?)

Since i’m using colored pencils, the hard part here was figuring out the right combination of shades for the tonal skin colors -this ate up a lot of time (help airbrush!). Also, notice that the colors are toned down/muted and less evenly spread out as opposed to if i had used acrylic airbrush. But, that’s ok -i’m going for the gritty feel here. These two still need some firming up and some more highlights but you get the idea.

Let me know what you think.

    I think one piece a month is a feasible goal, bro… and the more you get your groove back the more you’ll get done in your allotted two hours a day. Two hours… haha… that’s the time it takes for me to sit down and focus.

    You already know my choice for your next piece is Bram Stoker’s Dracula. That’d just be plain fun to do.
