This is the one that I just finished that I had mentioned in another thread, yeah, the one I freaked out about no blending stumps...oh my mind shivers at the thought......
This picture started out as just a sketch in form study. The area I was concentrating on was the hands....but I just stared adding just a bit of detail, the next thing I know...this was the finished product.
To me, this is not a sketch....you know what though? I did not do this all in one sitting...it took me part of yesterday, and this morning to get it done. All together, about 4 hours I guess....I keep forgetting to check.
***Note from Kerry:
Michael, this is soooo good! Excellent, even! Isn't it amazing the effect that can be achieved without blending stumps? I never knew it would be possible.
I also struggle with the time thing. I once put a timer on but I discovered I can't do that either, it frightened the living daylights out of me when it went off! Here I was in this beautiful peaceful place, then this loud brrrrtttt interrupted my thoughts. Welcome to earth, Kerry. Took ages to reclaim my nervous system.
Once again, congratulations on the continuation of a project - see, you're getting better at it. All it takes is a little practice.
Is this from drawspace or is it 5 pencil method?
