Getting Dressed: Sketch of Christian

May 14, 2013 in Christian Grey, Copic, Getting Dressed, Portrait, Sketch

First of all: I didn’t use Copic Markers FOR AGES..! o.Ô But I so much felt like it, so I decided to use them for some 50 Strokes sketches.

One day I came up with the thought of drawing a PinUp series related to Fifty. So that’s the concept behind this sketch. I’m still collecting ideas for this series, which will probably be a collection of digital paintings.
Thinking of getting dressed I had Christian with Ana’s (and the world’s) favorite tie on my mind, so I quickly scribbled some rough outlines and got him binding his tie.

 

Getting started with coloring always looks weird. See:

You can see the color of his eyes in this WIP, they’re grey and match with the color of his tie! :D
I chose a cold silver-ish grey, which sometimes look a bit blue-ish, too,  it depends on the light.

Here’s the outcome:

Do you see the STAEDTLER pen? I really love this color!! <3
It’s an important part of the color of Christian’s hair, I also drew the facial hair with it and some details.

The tie!
Unfortunately my light grey Copic Marker died, so that I had to use another grey, which works perfectly for the tie, I think.

All in all I’m pleased with the outcome. The drawing still looks rough, like a sketch is supposed to look like, Christian looks young and sexy, with a mysterious impression on his face.  I’d love to know what’s on his mind. Ha ha..! :D
Maybe I’d change his hair a bit in the final artwork, but I really love his face, I’d never change it.

For me that’s Christian Grey. What do you think?
