Our Portrait, Morgan Ralston (2D)

Title: Our Portrait
Name: Morgan Ralston
Country: Canada
Software: Photoshop

Hi, this is my first finished post on CGTalk. I drew this in Photoshop completely with a mouse and using only the basic tools. I wanted to give it as close a charcoal feel as possible. This is really the first time I've used the computer to do my artwork. Hand drawn or painted all the way! Since I was 3!.... I need a tablet :(

It does not look like charcoal, you could not create such gradients of gray with a charcoal.

Actually, Dioxide, here is a piece I did with charcoal....

This piece was done completely in charcoal, 20"/26". Bare in mind this is a poor photo I quickly snapped off of a commissioned piece. As you can see the tones match my CG posted work, exactly... If you are having trouble creating gradiants of grey with charcoal, maybe you should look for a tutorial... I'm sure there is one floating around CG.... Somewhere...

Thanks mchmielewski, and you're absolutely right. I do need a tablet, Unfortunatly I keep spending my money on DVD's and...... Student LOANS!!!

Morgan congratulations, this turned out really nice. Give up the DVD's and get the tablet you won't regret it. Once again great job.

Smile Thanks

Thank you, Euphrosyne, for all of your encouraging comments Throughout my WIP process.

Everyone here on CG and at home have been really great!

Again, Euphrosyne, the next piece will be coloured.

Incredible work, especially since (but not because) it was done using a mouse. I'm really liking this piece, I'm hoping to see your next one! And yes, buy a tablet, even a cheap graphire will be a huge improvement even if you'll feel a bit uncomfortable at first.

Your charcoal drawing is also amazing, I've always loved charcoal, but I haven't used it much since it gets my hands dirty
