Brett Covey by GregStevens Brett Covey by GregStevens
This is part of a new series that I've decided to challenge myself with: quick pencil sketches of gymnasts in different gymnastics events. More to come soon.

Technical Details:

H2, B2, B6 and H graphite pencils on A4 sketchpad paper, using tissue and cloth for smudging and shading.

After scanning, I did do some "clean-up" (using Corel PhotoImpact). Specifically, I adjusted the contrast up to make the image stand out more. Unfortunately, this also made all of my fingerprints and smudges in the white-space behind him also stand out more, so I went over the digital image with the "eraser" brush to lightly try to remove some of these. I left the opacity of the eraser at about 20%, because I didn't want the background COMPLETELY white, because I thought that would look too digital / artificial.

So that's it... now you know.
