Thank you! [In reply to] Can't Post

When I look at tis one, it always reminds me of me when I was younger. can't pinpoint what it is. It happens when I first turn my head to look at it... kind of a deja vu sort of thing. Then I absorb that it's Eowyn and lose what it is.

hair [In reply to] Can't Post

There's a trick to blond hair... all hair really, In one word: ERASER. I use the kind of eraser that comes in one of those push-up contraptions. Then I use and Exacto blade to angle it to a fine edge/point.

Erasers are not just for mistakes, they are a fro-real drawing tool.

To do hair, I layer: pencil... smudge tool... eraser... keep layering till I get the look and feel of the hair.

With blond hair: you need to make the background darker than the hair to start. Then do the same layering trick as above, only, more eraser. But of course, you have to be careful not to take too much away, then you're back to the beginning. It is tricky, but with practice, you'll get it.

thanks for the tip! I never thought of using an eraser to actually create. I'll have to do that.

I study the original image the determine what the lower layers of hair look like under the surface, create that, then do the middle layers, the the top layers of the hair, beard.

Check out my Gandalf image (footer), larger version here somewhere.

I did . . . [In reply to] Can't Post

that drawing a few years ago. Can't remember how long it took me.

I can't do any of my image in one sitting. They take me hours and days. I'd say, 3-5 days interrupted time (doing life on breaks).
