Sketch o’the Week

April 9th, 2008 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

I added some simple color to this pencil sketch I did last week of actress Kim Basinger in order to incorporate it into a job I was working on. Very rough and blocky, but it is such a small element in the job I didn’t want to spend much time on it. This is about 10 minutes of slapping some digital paint around.

    Wow! Ten minutes, and it still looks like you took your time! Great job! Man… I gotta practice!

  2. This is just my very humble opinion, but I really like the effect that color has on top of pencil (or a pencil sketch). I am a huge fan of Mort Drucker’s recent color work and this piece kind of has that feel. I have tried this technique with watercolor on top of pencil, but I have yet to try it with digital coloring. It looks great!!

    I like this piece. Gives you the painted feel but at the same time the cartoon effect. Nice, love to see some more work like this.
