Tyrone and Elina Wells - Photo vs Drawing by Rick-Kills-Pencils Tyrone and Elina Wells - Photo vs Drawing by Rick-Kills-Pencils
I recently learned how to put thumbnails in this comment section, and wanted to put a few reference photo vs. drawings in my gallery. (TO DO that, look above the Statistics on the right, and under SHARE is a thumbnail link. Just copy-paste that into this comment section and they will appear) :D:D

This was too large for my scanner, so it's a photo, and not that good. This was a commission piece for singer-songwriters Tyrone & Elina Wells

As you can see, I changed his shirt color with permission. I didn't feel I could reproduce that pattern?

See full drawing here


ENLARGED Sections (photos not scans)


BEFORE I drew this large piece, I had drawn just him, using a reference photo from one of his CDs, but I didn't take nearly as much time, cuz it was free ha! :D:D It's supposed to be out of focus around the edges. I need to practice that technique more...
