H.R Giger emulation

Postby saevilarvae@gmail.com » Thu Jun 06, 2013 4:43 pm

This is the first version of an H.R Giger emulation I did.
It is done with charcoal, graphite, and chalk, with small
amount of black sharpie, and white acrylic.

What does everybody think?

It is a little blurry, I know. And the fixative I used made some of the "really white" chalk highlights curdle, and so there is a deficiency of detail of about 20% less than the original fresh piece.

I personally am liking the detail and flow from what I can see.
Try to use a flash angled at your image to avoid glare.
BTW, I know how those 'final touches' can mess things up a little.
After letting my acrylic dry for 12 hrs. with intermittent
blow-drying, I applied a matte varnish and paint color still came up!
Thank You, E

actually, I used the acrylic to sort of re-establish what I had lost in the highlights,
But the betrayal this piece inflicted with its loss of detail, eventually led to its demise.
