Mick Jagger by noir-badger Mick Jagger by noir-badger
I was on such a tight deadline to get this done. I had a week to do two portraits, which resulted in my having to be working on it from when I got home from school (3:00pm) to 11:00pm then getting up at around 5:20am and working till 7:45am three nights in a row. The other portrait is Ron Woods (jya jya, rolling stones i know :D)

They go up for sale tomorrow at the Christchurch Art Centre as a fundraiser for my trip to Mexico.

Mick Jagger Portrait (c) :iconnoir-badger: 2007

Tools Used: 6H, 4H, HB, B, 2B, 3B, 4B, 6B, sizes 2-8 blending sticks, kneaded eraser, cotton wool balls, ruler, and an average-joe type eraser! phew!

Great work!

Reportedly, Jagger once said once (about 1969 or so) "I used to think I was ugly, but now I'm not sure."

areas of shading are too light in some areas and far too heavy in others eg that gully on his cheek.

his eyes also appear uneven with his right eye looking as if it is bulging out.

Not sure that I completely agree with this one. I re-compared the drawing to the original image and the gully is very close to being the same. It could do with a little more darkness to the left of it but otherwise I think it's okay personally. Thanks for your input though.

Looking at the image, tonewise I think under the chin needs to be as dark as the gully but the gully needs to be lighter: it isn't as dark as you think.

noir-badger Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
The chin definitely does need to be darker. I can lighten up that gully a bit but I think the real solution is to darken ever so slightly the area to the left of the gully. I noticed that it was much too light. I must say, my new monitor certainly doesn't help for contrast and tone. I almost wish I had my CRT back again.
