Serj in -s e p i a- by tavington Serj in -s e p i a- by tavington
Serj Tankian :heart:

Art Trade with the wonderfully talented :iconnico-mac:
We're doing a Serj-Trade XD

It was another Prismacolor challenge!
Only 4 colours used:

-Sandbar Brown
-Dark Umber
-Beige Sienna
-White

The paper had a lovely texture about it, so I concentrated mainly on lighting and shadows rather than features.
For a couple of hours work, I'm pretty happy with it.

And my my, Serj has become quite the silver fox!
Hope you like it, Nico! :D

I took the pose from a photograph I found in KERRANG! Magazine a few years ago.

Prismacolors on Daler Rowney Fine Grain-Heavyweight, A4 size.

Beautiful shading all over! :) And I love how "cool" the sepias turned out... it almost looks as if some blue was used in the shadows, so props to you for achieving such great depth! :highfive:

He liked the blue drawing I did of him a few years ago when I showed it to him in person.
He signed it with lovely words! (A few of us were waiting outside a restaurant for him when he toured the UK in 2007, I think it was)

Was a great moment for me :)

Hehe! He was so sweet and so lovely he even called his band FCC, over to have a look at the art too! (I was kinda embarrassed by that point! <__< )

I really like the colour on this one. Compliments his pose perfectly.

The way you've snuck in your signature on his jacket pocket like a label is awesome aswell.

Yeah I was wondering where to sign it! I was pondering about it for a good few minutes!
