I drew it based on a poster of the movie The Wizard of OZ. I should have used colour shapers to polish the drawing to get better and fine texture and surface effects.
Quickly drew it using a few normal pens, and adjusted the photo into black and white to have a different effect.
It’s a self portrait for the age of 43. The first time using the newly bought pastel pencils didn’t feel as good as expected. They are as dirty as the soft pastels, which made me feel a little disappointed.
A good day to say goodbye. Tried oil pastels to draw a picture based on a still from an independent but very popular and interesting Chinese TV play. Although it was not easy to draw details using oil pastels, I decide to dump the soft pastels from now on.
Finding the truth is always better than knowing nothing although the truth is not that nice. Just know that oil pastels are more interesting and the soft ones are really bad.
