Those details are amazing. I really do like how you can still make the visor glow even with charcoal, and I still can't believe this is a 9x12. Due to university art classes I'm used to working on larger surfaces so that amount of detail in a small area is amazing. The areas in shadow look very nice too. I can't wait to see your other five drawings.
Whenever I get to the visor my reaction is always 'oh shit, I have to do the visor... how did I do it last time??' lol, then I sort of start avoiding it, and well, it tends to work out in the end, but it's always the most stressful part, followed by his eyes.
I miss the big paper from university. I haven't had the space nor a large enough upright board to do anything larger, but I did get some larger paper not too long ago, and I'm going to haul out my oil sticks. It's all rather exciting! As for the other five drawings, well, my hand was starting to ache, so they are sitting on my table between half and 3/4 done. Took last night off... played some skyrim. It was good.
haha. I'm always worrying about eyes too because well they are the focal point. For some things larger paper seems easier because the detail areas aren't going to be tiny. You should if you get the chance to try larger paper. It's fun. I keep forgetting you play Skyrim too. Something tells me I'm never going to finish that game and I might have to buy it on PC and start over because the PS3 version is getting slower and slower. Well don't kill yourself and take a break when needed.
I read the description. This was a question for the seller/artist, not you. I can't afford $94, and not many people can! I would like to buy a print instead, she would still get a profit, and when the right person comes around they can buy the original. She's not selling prints on Etsy, I dont understand why you had to direct me towards the link when thats not what I was asking. Read the description on the ad on Etsy, its the original...
wow calm down, was just trying to help out. im sorry that's not what you asked for and that i didn't make myself clear. i just meant that since she's selling the original, it's unlikely that she would sell prints. at least that's what i've observed to be common practice. but of course i don't speak for the artist, so i obviously don't know shit.
