new Fedor drawing (sketch card)

 with Fedor retiring this weekend, I chose him for my next sketch card:

Fedor Emelianenko, copic markers 2.5x3.5"

 Don't be an ass. Let's see your artwork

How can I get the card Brad?

I think you missed the mark here, buddy.

Quality artwork, but it doesn't look much like Fedor. I can tell which photo you were using as a reference, but this didn't come out too well.

His eyes/eyebrows are what give off a bad vibe.

 I should do a Bruce Willis sketch card. Probably would look like Dana White and Fedor

lol the eye area is just too intense to be Fedor. Everything else looks spot on.

 made a few changes. I think it looks a bit better. Still not my favorite, but I do think the likeness is better than before.

 didn't you already do that exact pic of Fedor?
I like the colors though

 Nope. Did do a pastel Fedor a couple months ago though:


Nice.

I wish I were as artistic.

 The colors were a totally accident. I changed them many times. Initially, I wanted a 'metallic' look to this, so I started out with a base layer of gray. Thought that adding in a bit of color with a mostly gray drawing might look really cool, but the gray didn't seem to have much effect when I started adding colors. I started adding blues and greens, but didn't really like the way that looked. So I started adding a few yellow/pink/orange colors, intending to only just touch a few spots. Before I knew it, the drawing was predominantly skin tones. But I'm not unhappy with the way the colors worked, I learned a few things. It just wasn't what I set out to do initially.

If I try the gray base again, I'll use a darker gray for the base and see if that has more of an effect.

Lol, this. Good job man Phone Post

bradu's looks like Fedor. The other artist's rendition looks nothing like Fedor, imo. Bradu is pretty spot on.
