Encore.Une.Fois by XRlS Encore.Une.Fois by XRlS
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.

:iconwhiterose1plz::iconwhiterose2plz::iconwhiterose3plz::iconwhiterose4plz::iconwhiterose5plz::iconwhiterose6plz:

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.:roll:
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.

Μερικες φορες το χερι μου ξερει μονο του τι πρεπει να κανει (δεν αστειευομαι) και πετυχαινω το καλυτερο αποτελεσμα με τον λιγοτερο (οσο γινεται) κοπο.
Αλλες φορες ομως Βαγγελη τα κανω κυριολεκτικα σκατα (συγνωμη για την λεξη) επειδη δεν εχω στο μυαλο μου πως συγκεκριμενα θελω να βγαλω μια εικονα και την παλευω με τον ενα τροπο,δεν μου καθεται καλα,την παλευω διαφορετικα και στο τελος γινεται λασπη και την πεταω :|
Δεν θες να ξερεις ποσα σκιζω τελικα...:stupidme:
Μονο αυτο θα σου πω και θα καταλαβεις.Σε καποια φαση πιστευα οτι αυτο το ειχα τελειωσει,το ειχα στησει μπροστα μου και το κοιτουσα κανα 2ωρο,αφου το ειχα ψεκασει με το σπρευ για να μη βγαζει,και μετα το ξαναπιασα στα χερια μου και πηρε επιπλεον 20 ωρες δουλεια (ενω το θεωρουσα τελειωμενο) και εγινε οπως το βλεπεις..
Απο την τελευταια φορα που μιλησαμε,εχω ετοιμα για τον *καδο* (να τα αχρηστεψω εννοω) 2 πορτραιτα αλλα δισταζω...
Κι επισης φιαχνω ενα ακομα που θα κανει μακελειο...ενα απιστευτο βλεμα,με τονους λεπτομερειας που ΑΥΤΗ τη φορα θα ακολουθησω την συμβουλη σου και ΔΕΝ θα σβυσω τιποτα, κιοποιον παρει ο χαρος :rofl:
Εσυ πως πας με τα μαθηματα? ολα ΟΚ?
και ξεχασα να σε ρωτησω,προετοιμαζεσαι και στο αρχιτεκτονικο σχεδιο? εννοω θα δωσεις και γραμμικο?

Personally, I don't think people hear enough how wonderful they are and I truly believe we need that encouragement to grow as artists. Believe me when I tell you that I only comment on the artwork I truly admire.

XRlS Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
yes this is absolutely true.We do need encouragement to grow as artists,but then why do i feel so limited all the time:?
Like i haven't done enough,like i didn't give 100% of my soul in a piece,like i didn't touch perfection for one more time...
I am not a greedy person Jesse,but i am more than just greedy when it comes to art,because nothing is good enough in the end,and i am striving all the time trying to make a canvas or a paper come alive..or maybe i am getting crazy!:giggle: :D =p

Sadly, I too suffer from the perfection syndrome with my artwork, but I think that's natural because we know what perfection is in our eyes, but often times our skills have not yet reached that level and most likely will never reach that level on this good earth. Learning to be satisfied and continue to press on is an attribute you acquire with time and practice.

I like both versions, but this one is better.
Reply
:iconxrls:
XRlS Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
The first version took me 2 afternoons and it was purely fun,no striving at all.This one took me 7 days,with more than 12 h working everyday in it,creating layers on skin,fixating the details i liked,fading some,and so on, over and over again..
I used the muted pallet of my derwent charcoal pencils,and it felt godlike at some point cause i created color where it didn't exist
at all :confused:
