See^ I told you ;)
Anyways, I thought I`d something as an actual practice so I decided to go with a black and white portrait while taking care not to oversmoothify it and without taking too much time
protip: combine your excercises, that way you only have to do one!
... I always envy that "roughness" poeple like BMK and LaserKarl have in their stuff.
I used a reference picture of (thelonious monk), used one brush, no size changes whatsoever (xcept for the background), I didnt use ctrl+z, I didnt use the eraser, only used Black, white (again, xcept background) and pressure sensitivity. I did no scetching or value chart or whatever, just went right to it, and worked for 1 hour straight. (all done on 25 % zoom btw, the thing is 2560*1600 pix)
I have to say, I really like how this turned out... granted, it doesnt look anything like thelonious monk... it reminds me more of kanye west... (I should have just said I did a drawing of K-west...)
Still, for me this is quite a big improvement. I like how this took me only one hour, I like how this looks "rough"... and I quite enjoyed it too...
I think ill do some more bw portriats next week (maybe ray charles?), and I might work on this an hour more... who knows.
