Titans in new clothes: Trace by euphoriafish Titans in new clothes: Trace by euphoriafish
Continuation of the silly clothes series. This time I wanted to zoom in a bit and try to paint a bit more realistically. It's supposed to be Trace Beaulieu holding a teddy bear. I wanted to draw him as he is now without the Forrester moustache and glasses. I didn't give him realistic wrinkles though because I just couldn't figure them out in the reference photos I had. My references each had very different lighting conditions and I was trying to make one face out of them. When I draw the glasses and moustache back on over this though, it kinda does look like Trace.

I can see how much work you put into realistic shading. Nicely done!
The fingers on the hand look a bit strange to me, but anyway, tackling a portrait (I miss the old MST3K!!) is a tough assignment and you did well. :D

Yeah. The hand bothers me as well. I blocked in the color with the paint brush too heavy at the beginning rather than getting the shading right in the pencil sketch before painting it. I hate drawing/painting hands. They just aren't as interesting to me as the face.

If you miss MST3K, you might check out Cinematic Titanic: [link]

It's the new project by Joel Hodgson, Trace Beaulieu (Crow/Dr. F), TV's Frank Conniff, Mary Jo Pehl (Pearl Forrester), and Josh Weinstein (the first Tom Servo). There's one DVD out so far and the next one will be out next month. The writers/stars blog regularly on the site and sometimes talk to us fans on the forum.

Thanks for the comment!
