"This & That - NC" - Marker & Pencil Illustration.

I've had a few photographs of this wall hanging around for a couple of years now, so I thought I'd give drawing it a go. Those little bricks were murder.

I like the color choices, but I feel like the details could have turned out a little smoother.

Mixed Media Portrait.

I've been working on this drawing/painting off and on for quite a while now as a surprise for a friend, but couldn't decide if it was finished or not. Now that I've taken some time away from it, I'm going to go ahead and call it done. As you may recall from previous posts, this started out as a pencil drawing. Afterwards, it received a dose of fixative followed by glazes of acrylic. I topped it all off with colored pencil. I would have liked the white highlights to pop a little more, but at least it was a lesson in process for next time.
