I really don't feel like writing much right now. Spent to much on drawing today and my back hurts tremendously.
Here's a commission I've been working on for the awesome ~Eel-Skin-Beatrice
. Elvis has been on my wishlist for a long time, and I had the luck she asked me to draw a portrait of him on A3 size!
I'm first working on his right side (our left) of his face, shaded and blended it a bit. Then I worked on the left, and since the contrasts change while you add more pencilstrokes, I switch back to the right, then the left again until the shading looks right and equal
that being said, I still have to work quite a lot on the placement of the shading, but it's starting to look like Mr Presley! I'm very pleased with the result so far. (:
This is, by the way, the cropped version of the entire drawing. Once it is done, you'll get to see his entire pose. So much work, but oh so much fun to draw.
About 4 hours of work so far.In case you're interested, info about commissions can be found here.
