    Talking Attempting some Craig Mullins texture ~

    yay for color!

    Attempting some Craig Mullins texture ~

    Super-quick doodle...I wanted to try something else aside from traditional skintone. I also wanted to do something quick with a bigger brush (prevents me from getting OCD with the detail )

    I've never been able to really "get" how to do under-lit human faces...at least not to the point that I'm satisfied Anybody have any links?

    That eye really blows me away. How did you pull off the detail in the iris?

    Thanks guys

    All I did pretty much was study a few reference pictures...I can usually imitate something pretty well if I can see a lot of examples of it.

    I did a lot of rounded "v" shaped strokes and such. I noticed the parts of the iris look like they "exploded" from the center, so I checked out a few reference pics and just went with it.

    This is a 2nd attempt at making a "textured drawing" after spending a fair amount of time on Craig Mullins' site, drooling:

    I mostly like the face, though. The cropped face looks better to me, which means I probably screwed up the head somehow:

    My first attempt was...ugly D:

    I tend to make my drawings really detailed and smooth...so it's an incredible challenge to me to to and create something that's looser and with texture. I think the 2nd attempt, above, worked out much better than the roses. I was in a better mood, too

    They're still not up to the "uber-texture" that I adore in Mullins' stuff, but I'm workin' at it!
