Is it 11th of September already? I feel like time flies with this challenge. I guess that's good! :)
Yesterday I decided to do some sketches about my favourite artist, Sting. So unlike my previous faces, these two sketches are based on photographs.
Face number 9
Face number 10
My first version of number ten was pretty awful so I tried to slow down the pace. The wet black ink wasn't easy to handle. I also skipped my usual routine of drawing the main features with pencil, just to see how this medium behaves. It's actually fun to make something with a loose touch! You can't stuck to details. Now I try to ignore the errors, that his nose is too short and the upper lip too big... Probably I'm the only one noticing those spots. ;)
This was great practise for the project I've been planning. One of my records of Sting misses the cover because my boyfriend managed to pour some drink on it with horrible outcome. :( The pages stuck together totally. Ever since that I have wanted to make a new cover or some sort of small booklet. It could be a cool do-it-yourself project!
