Well, I finished my color pencil commission piece. The client has accepted it. I just don't know if he was truly happy with it or not. And the commission piece is going to a friend who is a photo realistic-artist. So, I think the client was looking for more of photo-realistic piece. Unfortunately, I am not a camera. I mean I can get realistic, but not hyper-realistic like some artists can. Those artists are really gifted and I admire their talent tremendously. Like Howard David Johnson http://www.howarddavidjohnson.com/pencil.htm I would love to one day take one of his online classes. To achieve his artistic mastery with color pencil, is definitely a goal of mine.
Here is a scanned image of the final work and then a digital photo of the work.
I have to say the biggest challenge of this commission was drawing the subject without the mustache. Pretty challenging, but I thought I did okay. Size of the artwork was 5 x 5.
I just had to share this photo of our kitten Taz. We found him when he was real tiny. We had to feed him by syringe til he was big enough to eat catfood. I don't know what happen to his mommy. He is so cute. We call him Taz, because he is just like the Tazmanian Devil in Looney Toons. Fast little bugger and into everything. This is a rare moment of him sleeping peacefully and not causing havoc. :)
Hope you all have a great weekend!
