Pencil then painted in photoshop.
I had a pair of clippers and got it nice and neat. We had a spell of warm weather, too much time on my hands, a razor and an idea, a bad combination. My ear is still there, well both of them actually, but there was more blood than I would have liked. Now, arctic air has brought us snow. My ears are blue as is my language.
I have a suspicion that Covid was responsible for a lot of bad ideas that involved hair and sharp cutting objects - it certainly was for me anyway Avoided the blood letting myself and have been fortunate with more temperate weather so no Smurf ears for me! :D
Oh my dear... what is happening in the space between your two ears
The idea behind the older pic is hilarious as well *chuckles*
I admire the textures in this one, they seem to be so hard to do in digital media to me.
The paint 'feel' was fun to recreate... I even painted little highlights on some of the strokes to make if look like wet oils
