Pen and Ink of movie star
3:31 PM, Saturday November 13th 2021
I bought a steel pen and ink set last week and I have been experimenting with it. This is a photo reference of a movie star. I really liked the use of the ink and thought it was very forgiving as long as I started light and worked up the darks.
The drawing actually started with a loomis head in pencil but I then used tracing paper to check and fix some of my proportions. I got close to the movie star's look, but not quite. I am learning that even the smallest shifts in proportions change faces completely. There are a number of other mistakes, smears and extra lines, that just show I am new to this media.
