Ok so the first is a value sketch and it's pretty light, never done colour before and wanted to get cracking on it as soon as so I skimped on the value. I like the value one better. I'm much more comfortable with graphite and I had to change my technique a few times in order to get this colour sketch to this point even. I am happy with how some things turned out but overall it died on the table. I was building it up and building it up and then I went for a cup of tea and it was dead. I considered reviving it or restarting but considering that this was the 4th incarnation of this colour rendering I decided that I should let it breathe its last breath... For the moment at least. I do like how the ears turned out and how I did manage to build up the skin colour and I really like the caricature as a whole but I lost the likeness and that sucks. Oh well. Keep moving. He who stops being better stops being good.
