This is the result of an online art lesson I will be posting soon.
In the lesson you chose your very own magic portrait to draw with elements that you want. Then EVERYTHING is Hand drawn traditionally in black and white media -- such as graphite, India ink, and watercolor. Lastly, it is scanned and then intuitively collaged and colorized in Photoshop.
In the lesson, I give a brief tutorial on the proportions of the face and discuss drawing techniques like shading.
It takes as much time skill and patience as any traditional drawing, as it is a traditional drawing! The only difference is that with the computer one can explore an infinite array of possibilities with their original artwork. It really is fun!
Look forward to the class, coming soon!
