Self-portrait in chubb

Posted on Saturday, February 11th, 2006 under Sketches | No comments

I was going for clean, simple and fun for this self-portrait head piece, but Jodie thinks it came out too "chubby". I like him anyway, so I hope you enjoy it too.

I did this with a 2B graphite drawing pencil and then added colors in Photoshop. Lately, I really have been enjoying the "Multiple" layering mode and layer opacity as ways of achieving the color shades I desire. It seems to be working well so far.
