So I'm being productive here:D

This piece is mostly to test out my new coloured pencils.
And secondly a tribute to the man with the most gorgeous eyes ever; Jared Leto!

So I ordered some Faber Castell Polochromos thanks to so many fantastic people suggesting them:heart:

While I was waiting for them I wanted to draw something. And then I decided to do a piece with some graphite and some colours. It was brilliant because by the time I got my colours I was done with the graphite part :D

And I must say: I LOVED the Polychromos! They felt like a dream and I was practically grinning my way through it! :XD:

About the piece :

Size: A4
Tools: Mars Lumograph pencils, Faber Castell Polychromos coloured pencils, q-tips, rubbers.
Reference and grid used

I feel that it looks better on paper though..

I hope you guys like it! :love:

Out standing!!!!! Jerid Leto no shave, tone, facial expression and alignment. The drawing displays a kind of image to his personal life and what people see him as another rock star but deep down hes a artist with talent of many other musicians that many people do not see in celebrity's today. I also like the coloring that you did on that little scar like piece, it's unique and many or some don't really go that far, so I like the feature you put in your piece. Keep up the good work because you have talent, motive, and skills; lets not forget that.
Proudly Jelly~~~

This piece of work is amazing. The detail is amazing for the tools that were used. I wasn't looking for this, but I saw it out of the corner of my eye and was amazed when I realized what it was. This artist is unknown to me, but I can tell that they have great potential. The idea is quite original to me, and it has a very real quality about it while still achieving an erethral quality to it. I also really love that this artist use colored pencils and graphite on this, because the contrast really gives this piece that punch.

Well for this piece I've used the Faber Castell Polycromos. However they wont work well if you use a Bristol-like paper.
When drawing teeth you want to make sure they are not completely white. There are usually highlights there that should be white. Dont draw outlines, that will make them look fake. Focus on the shading :nod:
