Remember that smile/smirk I mentioned….idk what happened to it cuz I don’t see it
Buuuuuut the motivation for that (non-existent) smirk was to coincide with the title, as if to say
“You laughed at me….you tried to break…you tried to take advantage of me….but it didn’t work….so who’s laughin’ baby? Don’t you know?”
So kind of a “Last laugh” concept….that ultimately failed…(irony in that the definition of last laugh is “ultimate success after a near failure” but in this case…no ultimate success…..*awkward last laugh*
So I’ll definitely will be doing this one over in the future (big surprise) probably in color though....
I used a technique called “farming” for the background. Basically you scribble some charcoal or carbon on some scrap paper(this is your farm), take your blender(ya know the one you put food in
ok jk, your paper towel or chamois, whatever you use) and wipe it over your farm and then….”paint” it onto your drawing…
You can see that in the video: [link]
Something about his eyes is off and it’s bugging me so bad
Overly long chin is gonna bother me forever
His stoopid Hawaiian shirt nearly drove me insane. I kept laughing because it was starting to look like a messed up tiger print
Charcoal and I are in a fickle relationship. It’s easier to put down but it’s too rough and I don’t like blending my drawings soooo….that’s a problem. His face looks really rough here…..I’m probably gonna ditch charcoal and go back to my old faithful Ebony pencil. But then I have to deal with the glare monster….Any traditional artists who have any tips or have found the best of both worlds….I would love to hear it
le roughness of the charcoal tis more apparent in detail shot: [link]
14x17, probably half and half graphite(4h, F, 3b) and charcoal(HB, B, 3B) with the occasional pinch of carbon.
