The idea with this commission was to create a sketch that felt spur of the moment, like the artist had seen this happening from across the street and wanted to quickly capture the feel. The subject was a last goodbye between a couple, with a somewhat melancholy feel.
I used Rebelle software to get a nice gritty traditional feel to the image and kept everthing vague and hinted at apart from the main focus. The most important thing for me was to capture the gesture and feel of the characters, and I was quite happy with how the overall mood of the piece turned out. Would love to do more work in this style, sketching has always been my favourite thing to do.
