Creep

Me again!

Just a little digi sketch ive been workin on. I borrowed a book from the library on the work of John Singer Sargent - his paintings are phenomenal! I love his use of colour and his technique. His work is the main inspiration of this piece.

Will probably do more to it. It was more of a study in technique than anything else.

Not much else to report....

Ken :D

Sargent is the man!!.. he is the best portrait artist ever.. and you did an incredible work here too.. the expression and the colors.. wow!!

milkyteets said...

And this is freaking awesome dude! I love the way he is coming out of the shadows like that, and the painting style is nicely detailed, it looks really good!

Charles Goatley said...

I agree! The way he fades into the darkness really adds loads of atmosphere.

hey Ken,

thanks for stopping by! once again i feel honoured that you think my stuff is pretty good, i draw alot because i really don't do much else, i used to spend half my time playing games or something but this last year i've been really into getting better, and i see you are too, i like the dark colors and earth tones you used on this piece, it does have a nice feel to it, i also like the old master's color style as well.

no rush on the email my friend, take your time

thanks again

cheers mate~
