You can watch me sketching a portrait from start to finish in my latest video. I used Faber Castell Graphite Aquarelle on Canson mixed media paper . I felt a bit anxious throughout the process because I hadn’t sketch using these pencils for more than a year 😛
The guy I sketched is a South Korean model/actor, So Ji-Sub. I read somewhere that this photo shoot was done several days after his best friend committed suicide. Instead of canceling the shoot, he decided to go ahead and honor his commitment. It was mentioned that he only spoke one sentence and didn’t even smile throughout the 2-hour shooting session. And the photographer captured his somber expression and grief perfectly. I somehow can relate to that feeling because I lost my best friend in a tragic accident almost 2 decades ago 🙁
Here is the video…
