For the past two week, I have been working on this commissioned piece behind closed door and I am already enjoying the challenges it brought to my table.
I am trying a realistic pen drawing or will I say hyperrealistic? It has never been so close like this. And the time I put in has been lengthy when compared with other prejects.
- Needle point paper
- Ballpoint pen (blue)
- Graphic pencil
Below are my detailed steps
First and foremost, I started the journey by using a pencil (0.7 graphic) to sketch out my model. This is to ensure accuracy and avoid mistake which will hardly been erased if I had used pen.
Thereafter, I worked on the hat. This process lasted for about two days. It took time because I wanted it to look more realistic.
After that, I focused on the left side of his face. I deliberately left the eye to complete it at later stage.
The journey continued here. At this stage, I started working on the right side of his face. I Still left both eyes blank.
And here is the fully completed face. I added the eyes and completed the right side which made it appear real.
This is how far I have gone. Hoping to finish it soonest.
