The title says: One.More.Time
And it is the truth,for this is my second go with Peter

My first attempt was here and given the medium i used,i didn't have the chance to add as many details as i wanted.
This time i used my Derwent tinted charcoal pencils,and white gel pen and i am quite happy with the way it turned out.

:iconwhiterose1plz::iconwhiterose2plz::iconwhiterose3plz::iconwhiterose4plz::iconwhiterose5plz::iconwhiterose6plz:

But i feel in my heart that i need to make a clarification.After all the countless hours i have dedicated to study his face trying to interpret and define who he is,finally i realized that for One.More.Time i ended up with a portrait that only represents Peter,through MY eyes...

Great work of art, and to have spent so much time realizing that masterpiece, you must have fallen for the original self-portrait and for the person behind it , just as I did !! Congratulations. The only remark I will allow myself to make is that I've the impression you gave him a tiny happier look (or I could say, a very light half-smile) that he doesn't have at all in his self-portrait !

i did love the original ref, i never kept it hidden. :)
as for the person behind it, i hardly know him i admit that. Now when it comes to my rendition to the original photo, i do have this tendency to...eeerm, change everything. The expression of the face, colors and patterns, everything will have to suffer under my pencils/brushes.:roll:
the way i see the images and i process them is clearly different than the rest of the people, i knew it all along, what i tried to do here would have nothing to do with how Peter is in real. I dont mind that, still i had to try to give my definition to things anyway.

Μερικες φορες το χερι μου ξερει μονο του τι πρεπει να κανει (δεν αστειευομαι) και πετυχαινω το καλυτερο αποτελεσμα με τον λιγοτερο (οσο γινεται) κοπο.
Αλλες φορες ομως Βαγγελη τα κανω κυριολεκτικα σκατα (συγνωμη για την λεξη) επειδη δεν εχω στο μυαλο μου πως συγκεκριμενα θελω να βγαλω μια εικονα και την παλευω με τον ενα τροπο,δεν μου καθεται καλα,την παλευω διαφορετικα και στο τελος γινεται λασπη και την πεταω :|
Δεν θες να ξερεις ποσα σκιζω τελικα...:stupidme:
Μονο αυτο θα σου πω και θα καταλαβεις.Σε καποια φαση πιστευα οτι αυτο το ειχα τελειωσει,το ειχα στησει μπροστα μου και το κοιτουσα κανα 2ωρο,αφου το ειχα ψεκασει με το σπρευ για να μη βγαζει,και μετα το ξαναπιασα στα χερια μου και πηρε επιπλεον 20 ωρες δουλεια (ενω το θεωρουσα τελειωμενο) και εγινε οπως το βλεπεις..
Απο την τελευταια φορα που μιλησαμε,εχω ετοιμα για τον *καδο* (να τα αχρηστεψω εννοω) 2 πορτραιτα αλλα δισταζω...
Κι επισης φιαχνω ενα ακομα που θα κανει μακελειο...ενα απιστευτο βλεμα,με τονους λεπτομερειας που ΑΥΤΗ τη φορα θα ακολουθησω την συμβουλη σου και ΔΕΝ θα σβυσω τιποτα, κιοποιον παρει ο χαρος :rofl:
Εσυ πως πας με τα μαθηματα? ολα ΟΚ?
και ξεχασα να σε ρωτησω,προετοιμαζεσαι και στο αρχιτεκτονικο σχεδιο? εννοω θα δωσεις και γραμμικο?

καλα ολοι πετανε μερικα εργα, καλο ειναι γιατι σημαινει οτι εχει κανεις υψηλες απαιτησεις:) μερικες μερες τα ρημαδια τα χερια, η τα χρωματα δε λειτουργουν απλα :P εγω προχθες που πηγα να κανω προτομη(την αφροδιτη) 2 ωρες παλευα και δε μπορουσα ουτε καν να το στησω σωστα, αλλα αντι αλλων βγαιναν οι μετρησεις, πολλα νευρα xD! την επομενη βγηκε μονο του μια χαρα χωρις κοπο.Δεν κανω γραμμικο οχι(και εχω "κακες" εμπειριες απο αυτο, και στο τει που ημουν καναμε, και στη γραφιστικη!)

θα ανεβασω φωτο απο αυτα που εκανα μεχρι τωρα να παρω καμια γνωμη, εχω 3-4 συνθεσεις και αλλες τοσες προτομες!γουσταρω!

Personally, I don't think people hear enough how wonderful they are and I truly believe we need that encouragement to grow as artists. Believe me when I tell you that I only comment on the artwork I truly admire.

yes this is absolutely true.We do need encouragement to grow as artists,but then why do i feel so limited all the time:?
Like i haven't done enough,like i didn't give 100% of my soul in a piece,like i didn't touch perfection for one more time...
I am not a greedy person Jesse,but i am more than just greedy when it comes to art,because nothing is good enough in the end,and i am striving all the time trying to make a canvas or a paper come alive..or maybe i am getting crazy!:giggle: :D =p
