It might seem like I'm being productive today, but don't be fooled. Liliha was mostly done weeks ago- I just had to finish coloring this morning.

This image is a culmination of things I've been wanting to try for some time. a)Using copics in realism and b)drawing a realistic Dave. I was actually pleasantly surprised with the result. I'm sure it could be better, and it's not supposed to be orange! I did it all with flesh tones but they just wouldn't scan in right. The contrast is also screwed up. It looks much nicer in person.. I don't think this scan of it does it justice... Either way... For the first time in a long time, I'm proud of this piece.

Photo reference used for Dave himself.. I think it was by Anton from the Paper Monsters promos?

David Gahan, lead singer of Depeche Mode.
Copic Markers E50, E51, E53 and lots of colorless blender!!
