"Practice in Public"- Jeff Goins, Real Artists Don’t Starve
"To sketch @jeffreestar Take equal parts Lestat and Roman Goddess Venus, add 1/2 ounce Superfine Sugar, Apply sass liberally with the best brushes!"- me, being silly
About this sketch and digital painting:
I love Jeffree Star’s bone structure and he is a wizard at makeups- however, his bare face is really amazing to me. A week ago I got to sketch- what better way to relax then the fancy cosmopolitan drink that is J star??
In Photoshop with a Wacom Intuos Draw Creative Pen Tablet, I used Kyle T Webster brushes (my favorites) to try for an 18th century Marquis Aristocrat meets Modern posh vibe…a little bit kinda Sofia Coppola's Antionette-ish?
Lots of mistakes this time mainly due to the fact that I did not plan out the hair correctly and ended up playing with different styles on and on. But that was also a lot of fun so…shrug? I tried to keep it down to under 8 mins by clipping out the bits where I tried his trademark magenta hair (its fantastic on him but just wasn’t working with this palette to me) speeding up the screen recording to 2000 speed! Zoom zoom and all y’all!
Just a fun fan portrait, I do not claim nor own any intellectual property of the portrait subject, only this painting, etc etc.
Thank you for the music!
