Sharpie L. Jackson πŸ”«

Portrait 18/100
“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.”

      Thank you Alison, it could also be viewed as a lack of direction.
      If I were an arty-lovey type I’d flick back my flowing locks, adjust my silk cravate and say “I’m still seeking my voice dahling”. In the real world I scratch my bald head and think, right, what can I try next. I’ve yet to paint with tea or coffee but it’ll be on the way…

    Sharpie!!! Wow! I zoomed in on the picture – it looks like you make lots of dots and small lines to form the image. Very cool!

      Yeah that’s right, it was crosshatched lines at first but that looked quite unnatural in places so I added dots on top to graduate it in better.
      I encountered the same issue when doing a finer point drawing at a smaller scale before.
      ‘Real’ artists are able to place down some contour lines and have it look entirely natural. In fact they can make very few marks and attain a far superior result. If I did the remainder of the portraits in that method I might learn it by the end. I’m not going to though 😜
