Surprised Old Scholar by CrimsonMagpie Surprised Old Scholar by CrimsonMagpie
Another old scholar guy, this time showing surprise at an event in the sample script I was working from. This one ain't so great, I need to learn to draw beards better.... :dummy:



:bulletblack: Ink on paper

I love dramatic inking like that, it looks awesome, especially for a face like this.

Cheers, I deliberately decided on an inking style that avoided any hatched shading in favour of just lines and black areas. :meow:

I used to do it all the time and was thinking of going back to it, so I really tend to appreciate the style. :nod:

It's a difficult style to do well, but makes one appreciate form a lot more, and is more unforgiving, which some may like. :la:

That's a pretty good bear, coming from the owner of a (partial) one.

I've been more likened to a werewolf over a bear.

Ah, I've just realised you meant 'beard' not bear... :slow: Yes, it is quite an impressive growth. :la: Do you favour the full sideburn look then? I'm sporting more of a chin beard at the moment.

I've kind of got this thing going on where it goes all over the chin and sideburns, plus a moustache. But there's an odd thing where there are two little patches of bare skin below my lip so I've got a mini-goatee going on as well.

Yea, I've got exactly the same thing... :lol: My moustache is currently starting to cover my upper lip, and I'm debating whether to shave it or do a Stalin.
