Every Day in May: Days 16 & 17 – Completed WIP

Day 17 – Finished

EDIM - 17 - WIP (final)

5" x 7" india ink

For days 16 and 17 I worked more on this drawing that I adapted from this self-portrait by Dominic Perry.   I’ll call it finished.    Here is a mini-gallery so that you can see the progression of the picture.

First there is the rough pencil sketch, then the initial inking, erasing of the pencil marks, and a light wash to shape things.   The next day I applied washes to  build the tones, shape the face, and add shadows to the shirt.    On the final day I added more hair to the right side to round out the skull.  After that, I worked more on his shirt and face.

So that completes my WIP.   I love watching people’s work in stages so I tried it myself.  Hope you found it interesting.

Now on to Day 18!  I have a stack of artist trading cards to do…

  1. Thanks for the friend add. It is good seeing a work in progress and on to the finish. I can see such being placed in a slow-moving slideshow , watching the work evolve. Looking at the card project below appears an interesting one also. Whatever can motivate us as artists – to capture this – add to that – is good. It keeps us “truckin’ on.”

    Thanks Ralph. I think I’ll do more and feature links to others that I find. Glad you stopped by.
