Been awhile since I practiced drawing a celebrity, I believe every artist has his or her own style and I’m definitely not the hyper realistic type. My niche has always been acrylic painting but doesn’t mean I don’t like to try all sorts of art.( Digital, etc.). Here’s to a multi talented artiste, Justin Bieber. As usual I shade with pencil grades B, 2B, 4B, 6B, 8B. In that sequence, then blend with a tortillon wrapped with tissue paper.
Many call me talented, gifted and so on (very flattering till I see another artist’s work), which I do appreciate a lot. In my spare time, I do try to teach other aspiring artists but they get discouraged each time they hear of the time frame it takes to complete a standard artwork, talk less a masterpiece. (Not even days, months).
Been a long time coming, I don’t care what age you are, this is a must see movie for all DC fans and Marvel fans alike. Advices though.., especially if you are in my country, DO NOT go to the cinemas during the Easter break, why? Apart from sold out ticket problems, I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t like a rowdy movie session, with cries of babies, kids and so much family groups. (Oh and couples making out at the back.., Ssh yes they do!), screams and the likes. Best to watch the movie later on, probably five days later after its release. With you and your babe or your guys and few other people, I so much treasure tranquility.
I started with a grid system as usual with a mechanical pencil (B lead), traced the outline with the same pencil, started drawing the left eye then the right eye, nose and finally the mouth. Lightly shaded the whole face with 2H pencil,
No matter how busy you may be, always make time for your budding talent, I started with a grid system as usual with a mechanical 2B grade pencil, then used the same pencil for the whole outline, shaded darkest areas with 8B pencil, lightest areas with 2H pencil and the mid-tones with 5B pencil. Blended with tortillions and tissue paper. Didn’t use any kneaded eraser, creating the rough stretches on the jersey was seriously stressful, note that there is no right or wrongway to draw; it’s all about the final result.
