Scars Remain (And How To Cope With It)
That's Peter Heppner, one of my fav voices in electronic music. At least that's how I see him - the reference picture is quite different. This one was drawn in just one day (New Year's day, to be exact). I noticed that he looks like he's one of those old German Expressionist movie stars, and so I decided to make him look like an old photo from something by Fritz Lang. I really hope it worked, because I had to basically re-invent the picture, where it should be blurred etc. Anyway, I was very much inspired, and it looks almost exactly as I wanted it to. Voila. HB and 8B (and a ton of cotton) on A3.

Audrey 2
A bit gothic. I like her make-up, I like how glittery it is. Everything else was done quite lazily, and adjusting contrast of the scan was quite challenging (as always, gosh I hate facial shadows). But I'm really pleased with how the eyes turned out. They say a lot :) Pencils on A3, and it was done over the course of about 6 months (no wonder I got so lazy with facial shadows...)

JMS 2
I made this one 2 years ago. Actually I made it twice, and this particular one is take 2. Drawn from a picture of Michael Stipe (one of my favourite faces) which looks as if it were made 100 years ago. First time it didn't work at all, so I decided to make the second one really, really blurred. Like Mona Lisa. I was very pleased with the result until I saw it scanned. It was really weird, because the central part was in sharp focus, and it was totally disconnected with the rest of the picture, which was blurred a bit more than necessary. I sharpened it a bit, but it still has this effect, and I'm not sure if it works, actually I think it's spooky :D I decided to share it at last, because it took me really long time, and on paper it kind of looks like the best thing I've ever done, and no one had ever seen it. Pencils on A3, as usual, plus a ton of cotton.

Selina
Teenage punk Catwoman from "Gotham". I'm not much of a fan of the version of Selina from the series, but i think she's really pretty. And I went slightly punk lately, that's why I chose to draw her like this. Feels somewhat unfinished to me, and the lighting is kind of weird (because the reference was much darker, and I can't stand drawing dark facial shadows). Maybe it works, I'm not sure, but I hope it still resembles her. Pencils on A3, though in fact it's almost square.

Ian Curtis
A tribute to an outstanding poet and the outstanding band Joy Division, who I should've discovered much earlier. The reference is small, the portrait is pretty big, so it's again not as detailed as I would've preferred, but I'm rather proud of this one. It seems very personal for various reasons.
Pencils on A3, as usual.
