Portrait of the great German rapper Sido. Work-in-progress: I think this is the most complex and time-consuming portrait I’ve worked on so far. I use four different yellow tones. Here are the first two layers. See more portraits of German musicians here.
So far, this is the only portrait where I used two different drawing colors in addition to black.
Portrait of one of the best German actors Birol Uenel. If you haven’t seen a German movie yet you should check out at least these two: »Heads On (Gegen die Wand)« and »Soul Kitchen« by Fatih Akin.
»Traffic« is one of my favorite movies with the great actor Benicio Del Toro. I think this is the only black and white portrait I did so far.
Looking forward to seeing the Champions League match live in Moenchengladbach today. In boca al lupo Juve!!!
I remember that I struggled a lot with this one. Especially to catch the light smile. When I thought it was finished, I had doubts the next day. So I worked the whole day to improve it. That’s the result.
I think this is my very first portrait I did with the ink and watercolor technique. It’s also one of the most complex drawings, because I used 4 different yellow/ochre tones to draw the face, starting with the brightest to the darkest color.
Here is the final portrait of Kool Savas. I wasn’t quite sure about the color way, but now I’m quite satisfied with the warm yellow and cold blue combination.
Step 3: Drawing the sketch lines to complete the drawing part.
Step 2: Adding details and working on the most complex part: the beard.
Kool Savas is my absolute favorite German rapper and so I dedicated a portrait to him. His music and lyrics always push me forward. I would like to share some work-in-progress images with you. This is step 1: Rough drawing and working on a few details.
