Mr. Chappelle by Shoryuu Mr. Chappelle by Shoryuu
A portrait of Dave Chappelle I did in my Painting class. I used Photoshop 5, the airbrush tool, an ass load of layers, and a tablet :D. I thought it turned out pretty well considdering it was an old version of Photoshop.............and I hadnt really used photoshop or a tablet before. So basicly, I consider it my first time really using both. Dont get me wrong though, I used photoshop 7 once to color a picture i drew in MS Paint but that was using a mouse and it doesnt look that good, and I didnt make much of a use with it. I also had tablet back when I was in like, 4th grade or sumthin like that but I could really use it that well so my brother just ended up using it. I tried the thing like once or twice and said the hell with it.

----Tools----
Photoshop 5
airbrush tool
ALOT of layers
tablet


-----
My screen is all bright and this thing looks really ugly on it. I need to do alot more work to fix it up, though its technically finished. But, I suppose there is always room for improvement.

Wow... It looks exactly like you took a photo... Without the joint, of course XD
I think the only thing that would improve it is equal sized bricks, but that's a really small thing. Probably not worth the effort. Nice job! :+fav:!

Actually, the referance background I used, the bricks were uneven like they are in the picture. Thats why they're like that. I always worry about that sort of thing when drawing stuff like this. Certain things might look like an artist's mistake when the person can't see the referance images used, but it's alright.

um sorry but what do you mean be "hat seems to be flowing"?
and I agree with you on the jacket, but that was the first thing started working on and hadn't quite gotten used to the tablet I was using yet. I'll probably go back and fix it up one day, probably when I get a tablet of my own.

IMpressive coloring, if its just with the airbrush. The nose seems a tad long for some reason, but you got a fav merely for painting Dave Chappelle because he's badass. The uncle of one of my casual friends is the co-writer of that show.

thnx 4 the comment and +fav.
In regards to the nose issue, I noticed that I didnt draw the nose out far enough when I was just about finished with the whole thing. In other words I made it too narrow so that why it seems "long".

OH No,I know what you meant. I was just simply saying i was going to do rick james at first but I couldnt get any good pics so I just did a normal picture of Chappelle instead.
