Matt Damon, Malin Grön (2D)

Title: Matt Damon
Name: Malin Grön
Country: Sweden
Software: Photoshop 6.0

Started drawing this portrait to get a feel on how it was drawing something in black and white before colouring it. Still not happy with the colour, therefore I post the monochromatic picture.

Some tips and tricks on how you best put colour to a greyshaded picture would be most appreciated.

Anyhow, heres the colour :
And well, YES he must have been in charlies kitchen drinking coffie, sry bout the background from another artwork of mine, will change it later.

Hi Malin,

Yep, that's Matt Damon, no doubt about that.
Nice painting, great mood. You like painting people drinking coffee, don't you

Anyway, a couple of minor crits.
Try to work on his left hand a bit more, looks a bit unfinished. It also seems smaller then his right hand but that's not really disturbing... btw, the hand holding the cup is excellent, although the position is a much more difficult one to draw.

Very nice work,

Ruggigt likt. Till och med färgbilden var bra.

Kanske matta ut färgerna lite.

Why colour it? I think it's better in grayscale!
