This specific piece is made from Charcoal, ink and some photoshop. It looks amazing, I’ve always loved the look that lines of ink can add to either waterolor or charcoal pieces. I’m not quite sure where photoshop was used, maybe a little of the background texture. It flows seamlessly, it’s great when you can’t tell where photoshop has been used.
The expression looks great too, not like this person was posing but more like the artists caught the person in mid thought, or mid conversation. I love it when we can see a portrait of someone who doesn’t look like they were posing on purpose.
Check out this artists amazing gallary, so many great works there.
