Elvis in pencil and airbrush, update I

When i make a portrait drawing, I usualy start with the face. This time i decided to start with the Jacket because it's the biggest part of the drawing. I have to go over it once more and the it's time for the cap and face :-) 

Elvis in pencil and airbrush

A while back i found a example of a drawing, perfectly drawn with pencil and colored with airbrush. It looked like the hand colores photos from the fourties and fifties.
I'm going to give it a try, the size is  40 x 50 cm on Bristol board.
It will take me a while to finish the drawing, the outlines are finished (above).
I'll place regular updates on this blog and on Facebook.

I hope i don't ruin my drawing when i apply the paint with the Airbrush :-)

Charcoal and White Chalk on Colored Paper.

I've started a new series of drawings, made with charcoal and white chalk on colored paper.
This technique is not as smooth as my other work. It's fun to do something else once in a while.
You get the best results when using a reference photo with high contrast.
