:bulletblue: Subject: Paint (draw or sculpt) a portrait of an old man (wizard, warlock, normal old man, doesn't matter).

:bulletblue: Deadline: Tuesday 27 November. I will announce the winner on Wednesday 28 during my livestream (19:30  Amsterdam time.)


What I'll be looking at:

To make this even easier I can send you a base PSD with 2 portrait sketches you can use with some old men reference photos included.

So...I know this is not what this contest is for and I hate to be a pester. This came up in my search for stock photos.
I am working on a project for which I need...kind of a letch, malicious looking old man. I have a [bad] sketch of what I'm thinking of doing in my profile. May I have any...suggestions...? Maybe. :3 Please.

Not sure how much more to do on him at the moment lol... The portrait portion is completed and runs down in to an unfinished shirt... But it looks like it's a worked up contè portrait/character art, has some real rough charm... and I think I like it now more than I would if I polished up the whole thing

What a great idea! Unfortunately, I am far from being good enough for this and there also is no chance that I will get it done during the next two weeks. I'll feature this in my group and journal, just a moment ...

I shared your competition in my journal [link]
I tried adding you on skype but it just has a question mark over your name.
This sounds like a fun contest, but I think maybe it's best left to some of the more up-and-coming artists, so I don't think I'll enter, we'll see :-)
Hope you are well, Dan.

yes :) It contains people who want to learn and people who teach and those in between. We have an all day chat here on skype, where we talk about random things, share opinions and help each other. When I see you online I could add you to the convo, we get new people all the time.
