Dirty Job - WIP maybe by Shouclak Dirty Job - WIP maybe by Shouclak
Hi everybody :)

So there is a drawing that I started a long time ago (May 2008). It's a portrait of my brother Olivier, 28 years old, a full-time diesel mechanic. The shots had been taken in his paintshop during a car painting session.

The proportions are little off and the drawing has been sitting too long on my table so I've gradually lost motivation to continue it.

I will put it aside and maybe I will continue it later. I have other commissions projects in the future.

Feel free to leave comments !

About 45-50 hours on it so far

This is turning out amazing! :D
I have a question though, how is it like working on a Peterboro illustration board?
Is it the smooth surface one or toothed? and how does it compare to working on normal paper?

I am glad to hear that you are free to abandon a project in some cases, rather than become dominated and ';punished' by it. You are the boss, and one of the best bosses conceivable!

I like it unfinished. It has a sneaky coming out of an eggshell different from the manicured portraits everyone is used to feel. Almost as if white paint accidentally hid a beautiful portrait. Maybe add a little more suggestion to the second eye.
