That's an interesting choice of shading area. Puts me in mind of Pac Man for some reason ...

That's a tricky texture ... you've done a good job with it.

Re: Tommy Shelby (peaky blinders) W.I.P.

Cillian Murphy is always hot in an odd "crazy" sort of way. I think you are capturing it. I do not understand this technique of finishing one half of a picture first-- but oh well, I guess it is a way to do it.

Ken; thank you
Katy; thank you, this is the way I have always done my drawings, I have been told many many times to shade it all first but I like this way

Re: Tommy Shelby (peaky blinders) W.I.P.

And you're not alone in this, Gordon ... I do a small section, shade it to near completion and then move outward to another until the entire drawing is finished. Like you I suggest people build their shading gradually throughout the drawing but for myself, this is how I learned and it is my comfort zone. Silly me, I don't even use overall construction lines any more.

Well, perhaps you can forgive me ... that particular drawing ended up on the cover of Strokes of Genius 8. I won't promise I shan't draw more catssssssss, but I promise I won't do so for at least another day.


BTW - do catssssss like you? Probably ... they seem to single out those whom they think need extra attention.

Looking good old boy. Now you do realize that you need therapy, right?
