Managed to finish the drawing! :D Couldn't decide if I should include a background or not so I ended up redoing slip shod backgrounds until now. That said, I was distracted by the WLIIA videos playing on my iPad next to me xD. Trust me to multitask even when I'm supposedly doing something leisurely eh?
I'm sure you guys would have guessed that the person I'm drawing is Jeff B. Davis~ :D Because he's my first 'celeb'/real life person crush :'3. Kinda embarrassing to admit to since I'm leaving the realm of the young and tax-less this year. I guess I can take it as me finally maturing but that said, others usually associate having celebrity idols as a past time of teenagers. Not really the image a wannabe financial advisor should project eh? Before I rattle on more, here's the link!
I'm actually really happy with how this one turned out! Seeing how I rushed it in a single day and without using as many references as compared to before. Maybe I'm finally getting used to drawing guys! :Db One of the rare times during which I've tried to make the character I'm drawing interact with the environment, in this case, the stool!
Decided to do a background since eh, partly because I thought a white background looked too boring to be submitted on DA again and it's easier to watermark that way. I wanted to do a proper bar scene but looking at the time, I scrapped that idea and created something that suggests a bar scene xD. Cheating but hey, I think it works! Kinda! Made a mini poster to make it less pathetic :P. Yea, the words at the bottom are unreadable after I added in the city silhouette but they aren't visible at all in the original picture so I ignored changing them. The silhouette brush is from the SS Urban Vector Design pack which I saved over 5 years ago. @_@ Will probably update the credit if I find it again.
Colouring it was fun! I really miss digital colouring. D: I think I kind of... Dare I say, improved? I'm really pleased with the way the suit and wine glass turned out, which is a real treat since I had more fun than dread and frustration when I coloured them. Took a shortcut with Jeff's hair :P. My excuse? As mentioned above, the directions of his hair confused me. Colours selected were partially based on items he own, although the whole ensemble is not something he's worn before. I love this tie and his magical 'Duststorm' socks so I threw them both on :D! /ends super long rave.
No, I'm not done with this post yet. Not when I know I won't be able to post for a month or two T_T. So while I was drawing, I figured that I should make a new icon to celebrate drawing my first real life person! I know, it's just an excuse for me to spend more time on Photoshop :P. 'Sides, I need an icon to show my love and jubilation in comments/posts!
Decided not to sign off on it this time since it's as cluttered as it is now heh. Which I've to say, is more similar to my usual "squeeze-everything-into-the-smallest-
Here's to hoping I continue to love the WL boys enough for me to draw more real people! Until post-semester I guess!
