Drawing Leo Laporte, part 13

7 Mar

This time I took some screenshots of the live feed of The Tech Guy 541 and picked the best I could find.

This sketch was made with a HB pencil on no-name 120 g/m2 drawing paper.

That is all.

Someone told me that he was left handed and that it would be a disadvantage for him.

So I decided to create a drawing using my left hand for the tracing of the photo on the Wacom tablet and the drawing. I must admit, it is harder, and you get cramp if you don’t relax your muscles between drawing strokes.

Alexis Dziena

7 Mar

I found a photo of a very young Alexis Dziena (cast in the movie She’s Too Young). in my TV guide. I traced the photo by putting it directly on the Wacom Intuos 3 and using the stylus to trace through the paper.

That wasn’t a very accurate sketch, probably because the photo was only 43 mm wide and 47 mm high.

After I traced the photo in my TV guide, I put it in a separate layer in Art Rage 2, made the background of that layer transparent, and draw with the crayon tool on a new layer, underneath the old layer.

When I had colorized the original sketch, I used the original photo to retouch the crayon drawing, make it look more like the photo.

The result isn’t that bad, considering what I had to go on. Still, I see room for improvement, and that is always encouraging.

That is all.
