the super talented guys from ABK_stuttgart were forced by me to draw as good and penibel a portrait with crayon. i mean really perfect photorealistic. they were really good. and then in the second part of the workshop they had to destroy it with power-pens. I hate it if illustrator feel too arty and too in love with their pieces.
the one thing in illustration is the technique, the ability, but more important is the unique power, that shows how creative you really are.
anybody can draw a photo, but who is brave enough to show stinkefinger and go his own way?
