    38EA47D6-9143-45F9-A1E6-1DC1AAE955C9.jpeg Yeah so i’m delving into a colour piece of a famous person.........not sure how it’s going to go but at the minute it looks a bit like him in drag lol
    It’s al practice but yeah lets see where this goes.
    Also i have found my firat issue with Terraslate, the dowell doesn’t work so hair is a bit hard to do with just the eraser and blade, not enough variation i suppose so sort of annoyed me a bit.
    Need to find a tool that works like the dowell for terraslate paper.

    B7959319-C6D3-4443-B279-22ED7D83E224.jpeg I’m not happy with it but i’m going to attempt to finish it as it’s all good practice.
    Colours are killing me and really the texturing is hard because it’s a4 and on terraslate.
    Might attempt another one similar after on Dru’s to see how i go.

    A good start, Very nice.
    maybe a fiber glass pen Or an electric eraser can work.

    Yeah i’m happy with it, elements i’m obviously not happy with.
    Skin tone could have been a bit better, probably a litte to much yellow in it.
    Hair could have been a bit better but they are all elements i already know i will try to tackle better next time round so yeah progression wise i’m super happy but still i want to get better.

    I think you've done a great job so don't knock your abilities so much. I've stopped doing it to myself and I'm happier in general with a painting even though you still know if you have made a booboo somewhere.
    You can counteract the yellow with a bit of purple, very very light of course, something to remember for the next one. Sign it and save it, have another go in 6 or 12 months see how you've improved.
