I started off with just a sketch of the music artist’s frame that I wanted to be the main focus of the illustration shown in the video above. Then I moved on to filling that particular outline with a shade of brown Hobby Lobby Anita’s Acrylic Paint to make the music artist’s skin color shown below in the image.

Next I filled in the areas where I wanted the hair to be with black acrylic paint as shown in the image above, and darker shadows of the face with a darker shade of brown Hobby Lobby Anita’s Acrylic Paint shown in the image below. The bottom image is where I begin to show boundary lines of where things of the face need to be placed including eyes, mouth, eyebrows, etc.



After boundary lines are put in, I being to layer up more with the shades of brown, going darker and lighter depending on where the shadows and lights hit the face as shown in the image above. More detail is added to the hair and mouth in the image below.



The top image shows where I begin to add in my Micheal’s Artist’s Loft Colored Pencils to add more finer details like creases in the eyelids, shadows on the ears, and more details to the lips. The bottom image shows where the background is being added in with a shade of green Hobby Lobby Anita’s Acrylic Paint.
