So! Here's another drawing of MJ. This one is drawn for The Michael Jackson Tribute Contest.

I always loved this picture of Michael, so I started to draw him. I added the heart, because it is all about L.O.V.E.! That's the way Michael was and still is. and he will always be loved :heart:
Then I needed to add the bubbles, I just didn't know why. I gonna search for it on the internet, and I found out that his chimp was called BUBBLES! :omg: so that explaned everything. I was pretty amazed by founding out. :blushes:
And the rose, Yeah on his coffin were a whole bunch of red roses!
the little insects and the rose are also symbols for nature and earth.

I hope you like this drawing of Michael. :love:

Tools: Mechanical pencil (hb) & Faber Castell Polychromos Colour pencils & (Kneaded) eraser & Sharpener
Paper:A3 sized Hanhemühle Bamboo paper 105g/m2

This is my submission for the contest “Dark Shadows-the Barnabas portrait project” Phew! That was so close to the deadline!
Traditional work: Color pencils on Smooth Bristol board; 16x20

Edit:
Ok guys, I'm not sure about the Mc Donald's sign I used. It is a corporate logo, but it WAS a scene in the movie Dark Shadows. I saw it on the trailer which I post a link above.
www.ropeofsilicon.com/tv-spots…
So, would i be disqualified for using it??

I wanted to do something a bit different from the classic style portrait, have some fun with it and try to give it some “groove” or whatever they called it during the 70’s :) From what I gathered B. Collins is supposed to be the classic vampire who wakes up in 1972 and is as much intimidated by the environment as people are afraid of him. So my concept was to show him embracing the modern American culture as one of the goals of the contest was to give the guy a makeover and create something more…imaginative. So here it is :)
All images I used were from the trailers and official photos. www.youtube.com/watch?v=isjg9O… www.ropeofsilicon.com/tv-spots… images5.fanpop.com/image/photo… The rest of it is my own twist of it.
Oh, in case someone is wondering the fish is supposed to represent the family business that he is trying to save ;)

My FB Art page www.facebook.com/dollygeorgiev…  I will be happy to see you there :heart:

This is my main entry for Dark Shadows / Johnny Depp / Barnabas Collins / Tim Burton Portrait Project

Original Drawing:
Pencil: 4H, 2H, HB, and 2B
Paper: 14x17 Strathmore 300 Bristol Vellum
Other: kneaded eraser, brush (for hair and background only)
Duration: 04/11/2012 to 04/24/2012, 60hr+

Credits:
Model: Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins
Drawing: Kelvin Chen

My Thoughts:
Potrait drawing has been my main passion as an graphite pencil artist. When I first heard of the contest, I couldn't hold in my excitement for entry. However, there are challenges.

Drawing with pencils really takes time and the contest only provides less than 14 days for completion. With my normal daily routine, it's nearly impossible to finish a quality piece on time. Well, never say never.

Coincidentally, I took my entire week off work due to my recent car accident. With my car being repaired in the shop, I had nowhere to go but focused on the drawing. The repair cost me nearly $3200 out of my own pocket and my insurrance company didn't cover the repair.....Long story short, I was so determined to win this contest. :onfire:

Despite the extra free time, completing the entire piece is still a big push. I chose the biggest paper possible for best possible detail. This is my first and most ambitious attempt to finish a 14x17 portrait in full detail because I don't usually include background in my portraits (see my gallery).

This pose of Johnny was found in the one of the two posters inside the asset pack provided by the contest. For the background, I got inspiration after viewing the official movie trailer. Composition wise, I believe it shows the characteristics of Barnabas Collins. The background was drawn in simple sketchy fashion so it won't be too distracting yet it still tells the story well. Some of you might have found the background interesting. Leave me a comment if you've found the dragon inside the drawing :D.

Yeah, this is it. I've used all the tme I had and now I have to submit this and hope for the best. If you like this, please favorite it, share it, and most importantly, leave me your comments (good or bad). I appreciate your support!

Have a good day! :)

I miss you, Michael. :heart:

This was the first time I'd ever drawn him smiling...and I must say how contagious it is. :D His right eye was done entirely by memory because the reference picture I used had hair completely covering one eye. For this portrait, I felt it was important to have both eyes smiling back.

Finished!

This is the close up of Michael from the whole, finished piece called "Precious Ones".


>> Created with chalk and charcoal on Strathmore series gray charcoal paper. This portrait took around 24 hours.

Traditional Art - Drawing


Drawn with watercolor pencils (burnished not painted)
On cartridge paper
...many hours...


The scan is not even half as good as the original - all the fine shading is blown out. I think dA should have a traditional art contest in which the prize is a fabulous A3 scanner. :fingerscrossed:

I'm a little tired and still sick so I'm going to update my notes another time, but I do want to say that I'm really happy the contest is judged separately for digital and traditional.

This isn't a dream I've had during the deep REMs of sleep, but I've dreamt of being in a place like this for a long time.

It's a dream of what could be and how I can make things better for myself. All the misfortunes that have crossed my path can be turned into something great, just as my striving for self-expression has driven me to create this piece.

It's something I've been wanting to render for a long, long time and I just got the "courage" to render it. Even if this piece doesn't win the WACOM Bring Your Vision To Life contest, I'm still so proud of it.

This is a dream of mine that I want to show everyone. My dream is to be the best I can be and find bliss in simplicity--the simple pleasure of driving up to the snow and watching the sun rise.

I think that the only thing directly pertaining to the theme in the most direct, direct, direct sense possible is that my almost-dream car is in the image. I will not discern what type of car it is just in case--as you all can see, I used no identifying markings.

You folks who like symbolism will love this one.

Also, for the record, I'm taller than I depicted in this image. The only reference I used was a picture of my car and a google search for "cars in snow".

Be careful downloading this image. It is quite large.

And buy quite large I mean huge.
