I knew you couldn't pass up a chance to draw Nicholas. You and your man crushes.....

Cool pic Jer. You really nailed Jackman's look. The face and skin tones look very strong, but the hair looks a little flat - almost like it isn't finished. The facial hair is fine, but the rest of his hair seems to get lost with the background.....but that might have been your point and I could be a jerk....

I gotta agree with that Scotland guy...the hair on his head does seem "off" somehow...could just be me, but it just does seem off. Otherwise the look and colors work.

Hi Jeremy,

Enjoyed the Wacom workshop last night. Thanks for the tips on atmopheric values.

Question on the Wolvie color study. Did you just do an overlay and copied directly or did you do a side by side copy? The study looks great and the water reflection looks good as well.

I noticed what the other comments mentioned about the hair and thought maybe blurring the back of his head would help as well. In figure drawing classes and chiarascuro they are always talking about that hair should have a smokey quality about it so it blends well with the background. Check out some stuff by Henry Yan www.henryyanart.com (a teacher at AAU). One final thought your highlights on the shoulders are to close to the background causing them to go flat. Even if the live shot shows that when drawing we have to take "artistic" license and move the highlight away from the edge so the shoulder/skin recedes into space.

Overall I like the piece and this really motivates me to pick up the Wacom pen and start soing some studies.

Keep up the great work.

Forgot a couple of other things. Your form and cast shadows are great on the face. Also the front of the hair looks fine it's the back that fall flat. It looks like you used a flat black as well. I had an intructor at this workshop last night talk about how using a flat black can distract the viewer and just draws to much attention. He really emphasized using a deep almost black color instead of flat black. ;) Just throwing that out there.

Also it's just a study so you were probably focusing on other stuff.
