Whatever just happened, this dude really tripped on it. His whole being is tingling with electricity. Is he wired from the experience, or has the experience become wired because of something else he’s done (or ingested)? Who’s to say. All I know is this looks like a state of mind that seems awesome to be in.
I used conte for everything on this one. Mainly drawing lines, but also a little rubbing to create the smoothness of the skin. The blending process is evolving. More subtle rubbing, then blending and a return with extra layers for highlights afterward, before more blending. The black paper still gives me a challenge, but I am starting to see how to play with it more.
