Portrait - Craig + Gengar by artisticTaurean Portrait - Craig + Gengar by artisticTaurean
We had to do a painting using a grid! This is a 7x9 photo of my brother Craig, expanded to a 14x18 canvas. I HATE gridding, but I like the end result, so I guess it's a necessary evil. XD; Please ignore the pattern on the seat, it needs reworking. (Also, yes, his hand really looks that gray/blue in the photo.)

My dad's Gengar XD He used to play Pokemon Stadium with us and he ALWAYS loved Gengar, so back when Nintendo World was still the Pokemon Center, I bought that for him. It sits in his car, hehe.

I had to do a grid drawing my sophomore year in high school and I didn't like it either.

It's just so tedious! It does help with proportion though... if I had just tried to draw this, I doubt it would've come out like this.
