I did this back in October somewhere between the mural and the endless pub trips, but it’s pretty rare for me to keep so many halfway drawings so I thought why not? The new Future Perfect is out and I did a doodad of Nick. This is where it started.
Instagram is, for some reason, a much better choice to look for photos when assigned to draw someone. I did a ton of sketches and finished with this one, and planned to redraw it over and over with no assistance until I was at Michael’s one day and he very intelligently pointed out that I could use his scanner/printer combination machine to pump out essentially what was physical layers. Such a smart boy, that one.
I did about 20 editions of iterations right on top of the first Nick sketch and then went through them all to highlight the parts I wanted to change, and then did a fair amount of those changes over and over again.
I ended up with so many pages and pages of Nick’s face sown all over Michael’s bed (where I was working). So then I tried to comp everything together and ended up with this thing:
And I wasn’t that happy with it, so then I comped a few more versions on the photo shops and finished with the beauty that is Nick’s portrait.
Things that are happening:
I started watching Law&Order: SVU which is probably not good
I visited my grandparents today and ate an absurd amount of tofu
I finished Eddie Huang’s Fresh off the Boat and now I can’t stop thinking about it
Ignoring that they rebranded as Huang’s World because FotB forever
I’m actually really lost now that my diary doesn’t fit into my tiny backpack because I never know what I’m doing anymore
