Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black sketch and painting
Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black - done two ways.
I was asked to paint the "short-haired" version of Jacob for an avid Twilight Fan to add to her collection of ACEO portraits.
The only request, other than short hair, was that the colour scheme match the rest of my Twilight paintings.
After creating the sketch, I wasn't sure if I wanted to use smooth or rough paper so I transferred the drawing to both 140lb hot press and cold press Arches paper.
(both are ACEO size: 2.5 x 3.5 inches)
After working out the painting on the textured paper, I decided to go back to my sketch on the smooth and have fun with a bit of ink instead, like a comic book character.
I'm curious - which one do you prefer?
This will be my final post for the year, as I'm closing the studio for Christmas and a much-needed spa getaway in January.
I'll return around the second week of January, refreshed and ready to share all the portraits I've been working on (the ones I can't show you yet because they are Christmas surprises)
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
