Goggles and Naan

February 16, 2014

Here’s a couple more Big Head Richards. I took another shot at him in the steampunk hat because I didn’t like the first one. I think I did a better job on the goggles this time, but I still don’t like them all that much.

I found an opaque white gel pen which I used to add highlights on the lenses. I have to be careful when using the white, because it’s tempting to go nuts and put highlights everywhere, thus diminishing it’s effect.

I did this one at Indian Delhi Palace, where we went for Valentine’s Day. I did the initial sketch at the restaurant and then colored it with markers later at home. I had fun drawing his hands on this one.

Also, in an attempt not to complicate this drawing with too many different colors, I just splashed the entire background with yellow, and then used a darker yellow to suggest a bit of depth. I like how the red shirt plays against the yellow background, but I wish I had added a bit of shadow to the shirt, cuz it’s looking a little flat compared to the rest.

When Richard saw this one he said, “Wow, that’s really good. It almost looks like someone else did it.” Then he winced and said, “I meant that as a compliment.”
