So this is drawing number 3 completed of American Idol's Top 10 this season, Tim Urban. Woooo. This one was pretty fun to draw... I think it was because his expression was different as opposed to most.
Hey there. I don't remember if I commented on this or not, but I am just in love with this portrait. It's PERFECTLY accurate, and there's nothing at all that could be critiqued. <3 The skin looks so lifelike and I really admire that because I have yet to come close. XD
I have a question though... What scanner do you use? It seems that my graphite drawings disappear when being scanned.
Aw thank you so very much! Sorry for the long time it took to respond but I've been so busy with things.
I'm glad you like it! I use an HP printer or something like that. I scan them in to photoshop and I have to change the brightness and contrast on every drawing. My scanner totally messes with my drawings when they're first scanned in and the scans do not even look like the real drawing. I up the contrast and fix the brightness a bit and do my best to make it match the real thing, but it is a bit of a pain. I have to do it though, so I figure a lot of people have to do that. Maybe that helps?
Aw, I was going to draw him with a beaming grin but I didn't find any photos I really liked, and I didn't want to spend a ton of time searching for one when I have a lot of other stuff to do. He still has a little smirk though, so I thought it was suitable. Thank you!
Aww thank you! He does look innocent. During idol they always called him smiley way too much, even when he was insulted, so the smile he has on his face kind of shows that he's a bit quirky. I'm glad you like it
