Hopkins Scholars!

This is where I sit with my editorial Illustration of the Hopkins Students. I'm kinda freaking out about the way their skin reads. I used Micron and am kicking myself since you can see all the lines of the pen as this odd texture that I'm not digging. I am going to try and go a over it once if not a couple more times to smooth that out.

I have a ways to go on my background textures but am feeling confident.

  1. I think you should worry less. I really like where this is going, a lot. I think the texture you're using is giving it a great sense of dimensionality. If you're not planning on it already I would say I would stick to more tonal qualities on the figure because the dark skin is really making them pop and I think you should definitely keep that going. Have you tried going over their skin with some sort of sumi/liquid ink? That might help. Keep it up though, it's turning out really nice.
