RED

29 FACES, DAY 15

29 FACES CHALLENGE, DAY 15. James Spader as Raymond (Red) Reddington on the TV show The Blacklist. All done in permanent markers which are unforgiving.  The glasses are much darker than I wanted but "wherever you go, there you are."
initial pencil sketch
darken with pen
first colors added. probably should have stopped here.

  1. Good job! I thought he looked familiar - you do a good job of "catching" people.

  2. I too, think you should have stopped at the second to last one. It is ever the hardest thing for an artist (irregardless the medium) to know when to stop.

  10. I really like this one! It's like there's a real guy there, looking out at me. I like the effect of the dark glasses. The saturated colour is striking.
