Elvis Presley - sneak peek 3 by LucaTedde Elvis Presley - sneak peek 3 by LucaTedde
Another little update of my Elvis Presley pencil portrait.

Sorry for the bad quality picture, still captured with my compact camera.
I'm still working on his right eye (the one on the left) because the angle of the portrait is pretty hard and even in the original photograph it looks a little odd... I hope I will be able to harmonize it with the rest of the drawing as I go ahead with the portrait.

Thanks for watching!
Luca

Is this using dry brush technique?

I use brushes but I don't know if you are talking about the "dry brush" technique with oils. Some artists use brushes loaded with a very small amount of oil pigment and that's why it's called "dry brush". Search for Igor Kazarin for example.
I use brushes to blend graphite like others use tortillons or tissue or cotton pads.

Oh I see! Okay, thank you. I love Igor Kazarin's work! I've just recently started doing dry brush (using oil).

I use it to blend graphite, like if it was a tortillon but I prefer a brush that makes me have more control over the shading...
