    Well, you're right, I guess it is pretty ugly and I should be ashamed to have posted it.

    Edit - Actually, now that I think about it, I think this is a result of me using pen and ink as a shortcut representation of pieces in the game. The large bit you think is a grill is actually a field piece with little rows hoed into it, and the two pieces on top are flat wooden pieces shaped like idealistic bales of wheat. So misinterpretation by people who aren't familiar with the Agricola family of board games is very possible, especially without color or better shading.

    This is a valuable lesson for me to learn. I thank you and apologize that I took it so negatively the first time.

    It's pretty much done using the ink pen. You can see in the corners the cutting guides, and the top of the frame is a bit too high and needs to be corrected down (somehow) if we want to catch all of the burnished art-deco style rolling at the top.

    Currently working on portraits. My artist friend has suggested that I try to work from either life or find photo references for people who aren't famous, because almost all famous-people pictures are photoshopped, and sometimes in ways that completely throw me off. They recommend older models in particular, because older faces are more interesting to draw than younger ones, typically.

    Very rushed because it was late and I needed an art fix and it needed to be one hour.

    1. Need to work on facial structure.
    2. Need to work on edges. If it wasn’t so late…
    3. Need to work on copic marker technique.
    4. Need to work on hair.
    5. Need to work on lighting of the face and hair.
    6. Oh gods I skipped the ear.

    Copic markers what even. How do they workkkk.

    Markers in the real world are generally not meant to be much more than indicators of what an ad or commercial would look like when done in the actual medium -- film, photo or illustration. It's generally a way to make sure everyone is on the same page as it were. Some are really great and others quick and dirty. But yours could generally fit into that category of what some people aim for. So well done.

    Usually the line drawing carries it and the color is to flesh it out to get a better idea of what the final will be like. It's a fast medium for that reason where changing direction doesn't cost that much as they sort out what they want to do. It's a thinking tool. Not so much more, unless the artist wants to turn it into more, of course, and some definitely do.

    Good job!
