  • Georgia Fan

    Commissioned picture of a co-worker's grandson.

    Burned on Baltic Birch - 8-1/2" x 11". Most of the shading was done with the Colwood 1mm ball, with the darker areas burned in with the shader.

    I was having trouble with the fly-away curly hair, so I modified a tip to make a hair shader. I modified a "J" tip - a small flat, round edge tip, by bending it into kind of a "mini shader". This allowed me to make tighter shaded sections of hair. Finally I used a skew tip to draw in the individual fly-away strands.

    Comments and critiques welcome. Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoy.

        Wow!
        I think this is one of the best works on this site.

        The shading of the clothes is really awesome. And the light background has a nice feel to it.

              Thank you all for the kind words. They really mean something from this group - those who have the ability and who can appreciate what goes into creating the finished product.

              I almost didn't take the commission on this one because I wasn't sure I could do it justice, but I'm pretty pleased with it.

                    I still can't get over the hair and the wrinkles. How do you do it. Man that is a nice piece of work.

                      Just amazing, Bill. I'm trying to do a human face for the first time on the flip side of my messed up piece, and I was liking it, until I saw this. Thanks a lot!
                      It's so good.

                              Bill,
                              I have a few questions, if you don't mind.
                              How long have you been burning? And are you an artist outside of burning? Obviously you're an artist, but I mean, can you draw/paint that well with other tools? And lastly, with this image, did you do it free hand or did you trace or tansfer part of an image first?
                              I'm just trying to see if I can one day become as good as you, or if you're just born with it. I understand about the practice, practice, practice stuff, but there are times when I question "How much practice will it take?".
                              Thanks!
