View Full Version : 3 tone bust

02-14-2001, 03:03 AM
This is a study from one of John Comito's examples in my Artists Magazine, April 1991 edition. This is my first try with this in pastels.
Do you see 3 tones or 2 or 100? My goal was for 3 only.
(it's a bit lighter than irl, but my other jpg is a bit darker than irl. I'll go get the darker version and post it too.)

Hi Sandi,
I have converted your pastel to greyscale and increased the contrast to view the tones.
Looks like you acheived your aim, 3 main tones are clearly visible. I like your head with the tonal planes, very effective,
