"Grandpa Jones"

"Grandpa Jones" 11x12 graphite on Strathmore drawing paper. This is actually one of my practice pieces I did in June of 2006. I was looking back on my old work and decided to spruce him up a bit. He did not look this good a few years ago. I did not know that much about value at the time and how important it is to get the darkest of the dark and the lightest of the light on your paper to make realistic pictures, so i worked on him last night while watching american idol and I think he turned out very well. I do not have a grandpa jones, I just randomly picked a picture of an old man to practice wrinkles and folds. Hope you like it.

  1. I LOVE Grandpa Jones. I may have to adopt him as an ancestor or something. All your art is just fantastic.
