|Masato Ochiai (World Order)|
Done in Staedtler Mars Lumograph 8B with Derwent Watercolor Pencils
Meow there, Monday! Finished a new portrait! Been some months since the last one. This one's of Masato Ochiai of the Japanese music/dance group, World Order. Just discovered them very recently when a friend posted their Tissot ad video on facebook. When I saw the video, I was amazed and wow-ed! I love discovering new music! I think World Order is now my fave music group of the moment! =^.^=
Started with a pencil sketch, lightly shaded. I've gotten bored with doing just plain graphite portraits, so I lightly colored it with a few shades of blue watercolor pencils (Derwent) and went over them with a wet brush. Then I started working on shading details with Staedtler Mars Lumograph 8B. I only used 8B and used my fingers to smudge in the strokes. When I gave the blue watercolor pencil strokes a wet wash, it kind of looked a bit like Avatar (LOL!!!), so I gave it a touch of violet. I also like to give the graphite strokes a wet wash to "settle down" the graphite and give it "depth".
Now, for some World Order music to accompany my portrait of Masato Ochiai.., I love their music and their music videos!
This was my first taste of World Order music and dance!
One of my faves... Last Dance
"Have a Nice Day"
