Wow! Only red and black pens, to do this? Incredible.

(I got here from browsing the Traditional-Realism group gallery ... I had just applied to join that group, and I always look at the galleries of groups I want to join to see what, if any, of my works will fit in there! This drawing stood out, so I decided to look at it full-size.)

No I kept it pure and just used red and black Bics. Under close up you can still see some cross hashing.

Unfortunately, much of my work is stop and start and I add to the picture over several weeks. I have some WIPs of this and others that I might post if people are interested.

Detail on the lips is incredible. Don't want to put you down, but the teeth do let this piece down a bit though.

Thanks for the comments and constructive criticism. What do you think is wrong with the teeth - too white?

:iconbardicspoon:
BardicSpoon Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2013
Honestly, it's hard to place. They don't seem to have the level of detail that the lips do, though naturally being a fairly monotone surface doesn't help. If you look though, in the original photo they have a pinkish tinge from the lips, but obviously using bics you've had to shade it with a plain black pen, which makes them contrast oddly. Not really something you could help I guess, so not really a fault. Also to me, they look a little over sized, square and crooked compared to the original photo. Again if you look, the ridges in the teeth angle slightly inward slightly more, and the teeth have a slightly more rounded appearance due to natural wear. I hope that was helpful, this is still incredible work and an absolute favorite of mine.

I suppose putting the original photo next to the drawing is always asking for direct comparison. I tried a hint of red reflection on the teeth and maybe I could shade the teeth a tone darker, but I was concerned with overworking it and potentially ruining it. I may try out another pair of lips and take on board your comments in the future. Thanks for the lengthy reply and constructive criticism.

BardicSpoon Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2013
No problem, like I said, I guess there's not much you can do about the tone considering the medium you're using, so it's a tad unfair to pick on that. And yeah, I totally understand you not wanting to overwork something. I'm no where near as skilled an artist, but I know the feel of ruining a piece you're really happy with by botching an attempt at fixing a minor flaw. Thanks for being such a good sport and being so positive about criticism :)
