The title says: One.More.Time And it is the truth,for this is my second go with Peter
My first attempt was here and given the medium i used,i didn't have the chance to add as many details as i wanted. This time i used my Derwent tinted charcoal pencils,and white gel pen and i am quite happy with the way it turned out.
But i feel in my heart that i need to make a clarification.After all the countless hours i have dedicated to study his face trying to interpret and define who he is,finally i realized that for One.More.Time i ended up with a portrait that only represents Peter,through MY eyes...
Great work of art, and to have spent so much time realizing that masterpiece, you must have fallen for the original self-portrait and for the person behind it , just as I did !! Congratulations. The only remark I will allow myself to make is that I've the impression you gave him a tiny happier look (or I could say, a very light half-smile) that he doesn't have at all in his self-portrait !
i did love the original ref, i never kept it hidden. as for the person behind it, i hardly know him i admit that. Now when it comes to my rendition to the original photo, i do have this tendency to...eeerm, change everything. The expression of the face, colors and patterns, everything will have to suffer under my pencils/brushes. the way i see the images and i process them is clearly different than the rest of the people, i knew it all along, what i tried to do here would have nothing to do with how Peter is in real. I dont mind that, still i had to try to give my definition to things anyway.
