David by missmuffin90 David by missmuffin90
Yup! Another one. I'm trying to build up a collection to eventually give to David.

I was trying to make this one look more 3D because most of my drawings look kinda flat. I like how it turned out!

Anyway this was done in pencil and probably one of the fastest drawings I've ever done.
Hope you like it!

I wish! No I don't know him. I actually won a ticket to a VIP party thing where I got to meet David. Unfortunately we just had to put gifts on a table for him to look at later...so I didn't get to see his reaction. But yeah David has all my original drawings of him now. :D

other than the sideburn area, this could be the best traditional piece of D.A I have seen to date on this site. If not, it places at least top three. This is fantastic

Wow! Thank you so much! I totally agree about the sideburn area. That part needs work. I might digitally fix it later.

suberb job. what shading method did you use.

:iconmissmuffin90:

Thanks! :D
I just shade normally I guess lol...I use a blending stump to smooth everything out and I use a dark pencil (like 6b to 8b) for the actual shading. There is a video in the description that kind of shows the process of how I drew it, so maybe that will help.
Thanks for your comment!

Well I was actually really lucky with this one. I didn't have to really do much to it. Usually my drawings look a lot better in person than they do on the computer screen, so I do tend to change the contrast a bit. With this one I smoothed two parts out a little on GIMP. You can probably tell....but they just looked really bad to me and I had to change it. Other than that, I just got lucky with how smooth a lot of it turned out :)

if you go to the colors option on the top bar, and click "curves" you can control the contrast a lot better. Gimp's curve control is actually nicer than Photoshop's CS1!
sigh. I almost can feel David's hair! incredible execution. JEALOUS

My favorite is the one of him leaping in the air. Second is the one of him kissing the dolphin. I nearly nosebled over that, and I'm not even a girl.

Actually, the one on DA.com is a poser. My real account are on archuletafans.com and Myspace. :XD:

The freaky thing is the poser acts a lot like me and know lots about me. D:
