that was hell
but it was worth it. best portrait of Sakurai done by me ever.
you know what’s funny? i still have motivation to draw more portraits from cosmic dreamer series.
hmm… what i can say about it. original size of it wasn’t that big, i mean, less than 3000px. i consider it as medium, not so big, not so small. the greatest part of that work is skin, especially skin on his right arm and face. fingers and generally hands, were really difficult to draw since i don’t draw them that often. AND HAIR. hair were a nightmare. as always. i truly hate drawing hair (but when i sketch i find it quite relaxing). THAT FACE. my god, i still can’t believe that it’s actually my work, my painting, my portrait. how proud i am of myself. THOSE COLOURS. i think it’s way better than the first from the cosmic dreamer series. the first one was the sexy one but this ↑ i find quite… depressive? sad? melancholic? i bet it’s because of those cold colours such as blue and violet (and that pose). did i mention that i totally loved that colour palette? excellent. when i was drawing it i was thinking about darkness. i was colouring background and suddenly thought oh, darkness has a lot of shades. (recently i’ve been reading a lot of Murakami’s books and i’m sure that it’s because of it, his books are so… unreal) so… yea, darkness, and also light and colours, has a lot of shades. a lot.
