Bob (A Coffee Painting) by aeonsiege Bob (A Coffee Painting) by aeonsiege
Finally! :D

This to me is the most challenging portrait I have ever done. The first one I did in coffee! I'm not sure about adding white poster color for the beard and highlights cause I know I can still get it done in coffee alone. But I admit it has some benefits. It made the skin stand out more and well, look like a skin. At first, I felt like the tone value of the skin competes with the beard which made the face look pale. That quite bothered me and had to to wash a darker shade on the skin about three times. I hope I didn't make Bob too dark than is necessary...

Thanks to :iconearthhart: for allowing me to use his photo of his friend. This amazing shot not only captures the eyes. Behind the image of this person lies a thought-provoking story which I believe whoever sees my rendition should also see where it came from.

Here's the link:

Materials:
A3 size watercolor paper
coffee
white poster color for highlights on hair and beard
pencil for outline

The painting and the model... :D



The one that Bob received has been retouched a bit as some areas had faded and some areas got stuck to the trace that covered it. I was too stubborn to fix it soon and so that was the consequence. I also changed the signature to an ambigram of my name. :)

I was about to favorite this piece BEFORE I had even seen that it was done in coffee (!?) Now I'm completely blown away.
That is some deep shit there brother. It's people like you that inspire me to constantly push myself to bigger and better things.
Oh..and almost forgot. Thanks for the favorite on MY work, which is what led me here in the first place. God I love this little community of ours!
