Every casual hang w a friend
This commission is for a family member that shares only one image of their father. That is a drawing that is 30 + years old. Their family originates from Durango Mexico and it can be hard to retrieve photos of loved ones since the US makes it unnecessarily difficult for immigrants to travel home and back. I am making another copy of the drawing using improved drawing techniques. I do not blend in this type of work instead of use hundreds and hundreds of hatching marks. This feels really special 2 be able to recreate someone's face into an image someone can keep for a very long time. I always make sure to use excellent materials for the conservation of the image. This is a 0. 5 lead pencil HB on #beepaper

My first sketch with pen and ink, practicing texturing, shading, light, and depth using both stippling and hatching.
Pens used: 0.3 pigment liner and brush pen (both mincho)
It’s getting finished soon :) Stippling technique drawing process.
