Old Man.

My art final for freshman yearr. I'm pretty proud of it and I'm sure I got an A. Everyone liked it a lot, haha.
I've never drawn on a paper this size. Eighteen by twenty inches (a requirement). However, the size made it possible to become way more detailed, which I enjoyed. The paper also had a terrible texture on it that made shading extremely difficult. That's why some parts look lizard-ish. I'm not happy with the hair because I had absolutely no idea how to do it, but I only had two days left to finish. Some proportions are off but that's okay.
I'm going to enter this into the Iowa State Fair art show this summer along with Shattered.
Took a few weeks in class. 4H, HB, 8B. Used this as my reference. Thank you. :hug:

Edit: Yes, I got an A. :D
Editnumbertwo: This won the People's Choice Award at the 2009 Iowa State Fair art show. :]

:heart: Featured here and here. :heart:

That's such a fantastic piece! The shading and lighting is perfect, and the work on the wrinkles is remarkable! Also so eyebrows looks so realistic :D The only thing, if you allow me, is the hand, looks a bit unnatural cause it seems bigger..dunnot if it was like that on the reference pic :)

But such a great work on it! Congrats!

Thank you!
Yeah, the hand was a bit large in the reference picture. The proportion in my piece may be off a bit, though.
Softdeath's avatar
Not all, I saw the reference after and the only thing is that you should have shaded a bit darker some parts of the fingers, but the proportions are really good :D
chiosxe's avatar
Yeah, that was the main problem with this paper. I actually used an 8B on most of the dark parts and they still weren't dark enough because of the texture. It was pretty irritating, haha.
But thank you again.
Softdeath's avatar
Yeah...textured paper can be a real pain, I know. But excellent work anyway :rose:
