Boy am I excited!!! i havent been THIS excited since....er.... YESTERDAY!! anyways, I did some more experimenting with the modeling technique and the woodless colored pencils and was able to do some MAJOR exaggerations today! i used one from my old sketchbook, but the others were pure subway train surfing! The originals are 11x14 and my scanners too small to show it all, but i couldnt wait to give a sneak peak! I'll show the full monty later!
Having a lot of fun doing caricatures with the woodless colored pencils. My approach now is to do a more modeled appraoch, and Im getting a level of realism that I cant quite get just using pure line. The guy reminded me of Johnny Newtron all grown up! LOL! he realllly didnt appreciate being drawn and i kept seeing him look annoyed as I happily sketched him on the number 1 Train! This lady, however actually REQUESTED an exaggerated version of herself and loved it when I gave it to her. She had such a memorable face that I immediately drew her again for my own enjoyment.
