Old photo- sketch

This is for a dear friend from Pittsburgh, leader of the U.S. [selfproclaimed] fans of my work ๐Ÿ˜€

I started working on a canvas using an old photo. Being personal for the comissioner i can’t post the original for comparison but i can show the steps. I usually show work in progress but on this one i need to add some info with each step. ย So… first thing to do is drawing the characters and separate the background…

After a while, when my back doesn’t hurt that much i put a few brush layers around the characters and create the space using basic shadows and highlights…

After doing that i use the airbrush for some vignetting. Here’s the extra info. In the original photo there is a staircase in the left but somehow projected… something like a cinema movie. So i used the airbrush for that… blurred a little… i also used the vignette [extended for older looks] but most importantly to create a space like a soft landscape instead of a blank wall.

Now i’ll wait for it to dry and start working on all the details…
