Another Lee Jeffries inspired portrait
Continuing with the theme of my last portrait, here is another portrait featuring hands on the subject’s face.
This was drawn in Procreate and is based in a photograph by Lee Jeffries. I took a slightly different approach to the finished portrait this time by adding a touch of color.
I always start each Procreate piece with an undersketch. If I’m drawing a portrait that will be on a mid-tone or dark background I will usually create my undersketch with white lines. Then I can adjust the transparency of the undersketch layer so that the lines become faint, this becomes a guide while creating the main sketch. I took the same approach with this piece but, once the main sketch was complete I decided to bring the undersketch layer to the top and adjust the transparency once again for some visual interest. This effect is mainly apparent on the fingers. I liked the way that it loosened up the final presentation.
I hope everyone has a great Monday! Thanks for visiting – Mike
