Birthday picture done for Dallas, July 2018.
Over the last few years I've been working my way through the Star Wars characters as a series of grey scale portraits for Dallas to display in his home office. So, always a fun and easy project to do every year and I thought it was about time I added Ben 'Obi-Wan' Kenobi to the collection.
It was my first time drawing Sir Alec and it was very tricky to get the eyes and face just right. The more I looked at it when it was done the more I spotted the error in the mouth but never mind, it's all practice isn't it.
Done with polychromos pencils and built up in layers, utilising my pressure application and layering techniques, the picture consists of 8 colours.
Obi-Wan's eyes were done with dark sepia, warm grey 1, warm grey 2, warm grey 3 and warm grey 4.
His eyebrows were done with dark sepia.
His nose was done with warm grey 1, warm grey 2, warm grey 4, warm grey 5 and warm grey 6.
His mouth was done with dark sepia, warm grey 1, warm grey 2 and warm grey 4.
His skin was done with black, warm grey 1, warm grey 2, warm grey 4 and warm grey 5.
His hair was done with black, warm grey 4 and warm grey 5.
His beard was done with white, warm grey 1, warm grey 2 and warm grey 4.
His hand was done with dark sepia, warm grey 2, warm grey 4 and warm grey 5.
His Jedi robes were done with dark sepia, black, warm grey 4, warm grey 5 and warm grey 6.
R2-D2's head was done with white, black, warm grey 1, warm grey 2, warm grey 4 and warm grey 6.
C-3PO's hand (which you can just see) was done with white, warm grey 2, warm grey 4, warm grey 5 and warm grey 6.
Luke's hair was done with warm grey 1, warm grey 2, warm grey 5 and warm grey 6.
Luke's SoroSuub X-34 Landspeeder was done with white, warm grey 1, warm grey 4, warm grey 5 and warm grey 6.
The Stormtrooper's armour was done with warm grey 1, warm grey 4 and warm grey 6.
Finally, the Mos Eisley background was done with white, warm grey 1, warm grey 4 and warm grey 5.
