FRIDAY, 28 FEBRUARY - FACE NO 29
|'PER ARDUA AD ASTRA'|
RAF Motto - 'Through hardship to the stars'
- by Jez
For this drawing I used the fine tip for the basic drawing, then the brush tip for the dark areas on the face and goggles and for a thick line around the image. I then took it into Photoshop and filled the rest of the square with black using the bucket fill. The final touch was to make a frame around the image on Photoshop because I like my digital pieces 'framed'.
My last face of the 29 Faces Challenge - it's been a struggle but I have enjoyed it so much. Thank you Martha for the Challenge. And heartfelt thanks to everyone who has been kind enough to leave comments that have cheered me and given me so much pleasure.
And here are the faces I created during the rest of Week 4:
SATURDAY - An I-pad drawing aiming to get the effect of making the face with coloured wires:
SUNDAY - Watercolour pencil painting of King Edward III of England:
MONDAY - A pretty girl with a couple of doggerel verses to explain what she is thinking:
TUESDAY - Visit to a Matisse Exhibition resulting in an I-Pad drawing of one of his pictures:
WEDNESDAY - Inspired by a Modigliani drawing:
THURSDAY - Up-dating Philip the Good

Jez this new one is terrific....I admire your tenacity with all that goes on in your life you manage to stay true to your art and changing it up! It's been a joy watching what you produce! I love how technically savvy you are too!!ReplyDelete
Such wonderfulness! I think every one of your portraits is fantastic! When I clicked through the photos I thought wow this is wonderful, and then again, oh this is beautiful… going on forever piece. I think it is fantastic how you are able to find new techniques again and again. Maybe I should try that some day, but don't think I can do it.ReplyDelete
I have a short visit in the blog-space today, linking up with PPF today.
Have a great weekend Jez! Hope you both can enjoy some good hours! Visiting museums is a treat for anyone, wish I had more of that ;-)

Hi Jez thanks for the tip on the book. I will certainly look that one up. I am at home next week so I will make some time then. I loved seeing your faces each week and I will miss seeing so many all at once. I didn't finish myself as I could not find the time but it was good to see the others! That pretty girl is gorgeous you know I like pretty things so she is my favourite :) Happy paper Saturdays!!!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on completing the challenge. My favourite is the aviator, very romantic.
