From a drawing to an e-painting

I'm indeed not drawing a lot these days, maybe due to uni and the stress and lack of time that comes with it, or maybe it's just be lack of inspiration.
Abour a year ago I started doing mainly very stylised ink-drawings, a year before that, I was strangely attracted to surrealist paintings and thus produced TONS of 'em myself. Right now, I'm more into stuff that takes rather small amounts of time so that I don't have to stress myself even more. If you're bored right now, take a pen and a piece of paper (doesn't have to be white paper, can also be a writing paper) and follow me here - if not, enjoy the pics!

My inspiration for this drawing was my sweet friend Pascal [check out his fashion blog if you don't know it yet HERE], first of all because I really liked the colours of the original picture and secondly the composition and the pose just as the facial expression. To produce something of great quality, you need to have an inspiration that really touches your heart and soul and not only your mind. (Oh this could've been quite an Oscar Wilde saying, haha)
But enough of the talking, I'm even boring myself already and that should mean something!

step #1
step #2
step #3


I felt explaining in detail how the procedure of creating this drawing went would be too boring for most of you. Just to say that I did the drawing with a simple pencil, then scanned it and coloured the thingie in Photoshop with the normal pen tool, using an opacity of 8% to 14%, not more. I used the colours from the original picture and in the end edited the original photo into my drawing with an opacity of round about 20% for some of the details like the glasses to look more precise.
So this is the finished thing:

  12. Just: yes exactly, i changed the colour of the pen all the time (the pen with the sharp edges obviously) and also changed the opacity all the time, varying between ca. 8% and 14% as I said... it's a very spontanous thing for me, I do it after my feeling until it looks right :D
