Feeling very organised and ready to confront the up and coming holiday season head on.
Here are the final stages on "Above the Bit."
Step 5 and 6 are basically focused on rendering and slightly detailing the mouth. This is the stage where I found it the hardest to stay loose. To render an impression rather than the full visual detail. I worked using a flat tip as opposed to a sharp point. The metal was done with a fine paint brush.
Step 5: The mouth and nose added
Step 6 (zoomed in) Work on the metal, all the edges are still to be cleaned and worked. This scan also clearly shows the tooth of the paper. This is not visible to the eye from a distance so I chose (with difficulty) to ignore it.
Below is the signed and sealed version of "Above the Bit".
The title is so obvious forming a nice contrast, I feel, with the crop I chose to illustrate.
Once again had a great time drawing with this medium.
Wishing you a grand week-end wherever you are.
