Old Man by Shorai-san Old Man by Shorai-san
Phew, finally done and just in time for the upcoming contest I'm entering in.
The old man's face was done out of mainly a 6B pencil while the black background was done with charcoal, since it spreads faster and easier. However, the old man's face reflect lights unlike the black background, which could effect the picture irl.

This was somewhat a practice drawing old people. Reference used. D:

18x24in drawing paper.
Graphite + Charcoal

I particularly like the expression of this character, we don't know what he thinks

Did you take any model? How much time did you pass on it?

Sorry for questions i'm quite interested^^

Nice! Love the lighting on his face and the highlights within the textures.

I think what makes your pieces "Shorai" are the eyes. They're always glaring at the viewer. :)
