Loki (Inverted Drawing)

My second inverted drawing! I couldn't resist to draw an inverted Loki picture! :D
But this time I waited for good light conditions and took my good camera to take a photo of this drawing... For now my eyes hurt enough and my mind is still a little bit confused about all these negative colours. ^^; So my next drawing will be "normal"...

Reference was a promo picture of Tom Hiddleston as Loki from the movie "The Avengers" (2012). Of course I inverted the colours of this picture (= negative) in Photoshop before I started to draw (I used the normal and the inverted picture for reference). The four colour pencils are just on the photo to show the effect and I used a few more colours for this drawing.

Paper DIN A4 190g/m², Faber-Castell Polychromos artists' colour pencils, time: maybe 12 hours?

Thank you! :bow:
For an inverted drawing you just choose a reference, invert the picture, draw it like that (negative), take a photo of the drawing and invert it back to normal in Photoshop and hope that you matched the colours + everything else perfectly. ;)
