2. Portrait of Pope Benedict XVI
This is an exemple of testing new media : Reynolds Markers Pinsocolor.
For this I begin with a quick pencil sketch.
After that, I am using the yellow marker. I choose this kind of product because of its brush shape.
A bit larger than Pitt Faber Castell artist pen that I had already tried.
The impression is good.
Then I go on with darker colors : orange, brown.
I draw on with red and pink.
After that it's time to take the eyes with two blue colors.
I finish the job with black marker.
Half an hour to realize these operations, then I scanned and applyed a Watercolor filter in Photoshop and added a pale cream background.
Pope Benedict XVI is ready now to fly in the USA !
