This is a drawing of a face that is approximately 7″x7″. A thin red pen was used to mark in basic facial features and eyes, and a wash of purple watercolor was used to define value and some shading. Light washes of water were repeatedly used to subtly blend lighter shades of ink around the face, but these shades are not readily visible without contrast adjustment. In the second image, the Levels of the artwork were shifted to reveal a higher degree of contrast between the ink and the paper. This adjustment gives the face an eerie set of eyes and a creepy sandman appearance as the computer attempts to fill in the white space with a grainy gradient value.
