Spock – The Pain of Loss

I’ve desired for a Spock portrait long ago, and now the time has come. This is the first occasion when I use a tool other than plain graphite pencils. I’ve never tried color drawing before at all. I was afraid of it, but this portrait turned out better than I thought.

Spock - The Pain of Loss color print

Pastel portrait on green paper

Tools:
Pastel chalks – noname from LIDL :), charcoal pencil (Derwent) on GREEN paper. Why? Spock’s blood is green, and it seemed a good idea to try out how’d green blood seen through the caucasian skin.

Scene:
Captain Kirk disappears while trying to rescue the USS Defiant. Spock must accept the fact that his friend is no longer alive.
