Happy Birthday Irving Berlin (March 11th)

This is all with a 4B pencil and white colouring pencil on a fairly dark toned paper. Usually I vary the leads I use, but with the darker paper I felt I had more freedom. Had to photograph it rather than scan it because of the reflection off the pencil.

That's one gorgeous sketch Mate...love that it's all traditional (although there looks like there was a little photoshop involved? Gradient tool?)

Moyse said...

Thanks guys! Vin, thanks for that, and to answer your question, no, the gradient is because it was photographed rather badly by myself ;) It's still a pretty good representation of the actual sketch though.
