More Homework

I had homework to pick an artist I was interested in and to copy a picture of their's in soft charcoal. I chose James Bama. I had to fix this once and then go over the blacks again to get the really dark tones in the hat, neck and deaper creases of the face but I think it turned out really well. I started out with a sort of blanket neutral tone on the face then darkened it where needed and erased it to lighten where needed. Bama painted this guy's face dark and then dabbed the lighter skin color over the top, creating the weather-beaten look of his skin. By daubing the eraser over the neutral tones I was able to simulate the effect.
