Wink WDE-Dec 17-10 Gael + Julie MI hopefully

Hi,
Thanks Alain for the great group of images... I am definitely on a portrait trend so I tried Gael, the little artist , and his beautiful mother, Julie.... sorry that the likenesses aren't that great.. but hopefully captured a little bit of them...
both done on a piece of brown paper, and you won't believe this but on the same paper that I did your last December challenge ....both 25x35 cm Gael done in charcoal pencil about 35 minutes, Julie done with Derwent sketching pencils also about 35minutes... now lets cross our fingers the image loader is working





BRAVO wetcanvas!!!!

C&C Welcome
Carol

Great graphite portraits (and speedy, too). Little Gael is such a cutie.

Re: WDE-Dec 17-10 Gael + Julie MI hopefully

Have been playing around with photoshop and textures and thought I would share this version of Julie after tweaking in PS... Used as background a texture from Kim Klassencalled smart ..placed Julie on top blend mode colorburn at 72%..

Julie + texture-colorburn 72% by Edanim, on Flickr

Now where can I find "real paper" like that?????

You may not have got an exact likeness but you certainly got the expression especially on the mother. Lovely work.
