Very nice indeed!!
What technique did you use??
Reply

shmeeden Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
I use modeling paste for the texture, and use a number of different processes, while it dries, to get the surface texture. I then use charcoal and paint on top, for the image.

The texture is very nice...and the big eye makes the picture very expressive and at the same time works as a liitle lamp pointed on the painting!

Yeah, they're fun to do. Although, their faces are SO simple that it actually makes them kind of hard to draw properly. If they're not juuuussst right, they look totally wonky.
