On the way to hyper-realism: Tom Meighan, 2nd portrait
Hi everybody! I finally managed to draw another portrait. Forget about all the pencil brands I talked about in my later posts. I just used a 1 euro mechanical pencil, with Staedtler 0.5 mm HB lead, and a normal Faber-Castle eraser. So costs were almost zero! Photo found on the web as usual, simply liked it as Tom Meighan’s (Kasabian singer) eyes reflect some divine light in this shot. Spent lots of time on drawing his hair, which is not as satisfactory as it should be, while least effort was put on the nose and mouth, which look almost good (to me!). There is still a long way to reach that challenging point of hyper-realism mastery, but I think there’s some progress in my work, and that’s up-lifting.
