Drug Abuse by AlbertFish Drug Abuse by AlbertFish
Finaly, this took a long time to finish. Even thouge its not that detailed. But doing the curves was a real pain in the ass and they didnt turn out as good as I wanted but I'm still pretty saticfied with them. And one more thing, the drawing looks better IRL. Oh and yeah, its the first time I've added color to my work, I think it looks really nice with the red and white pills. I think I'm going to work more with colors, noting much but a bit here and there. =)

Its supose to be a self portrait, without any piercings =). I guess I have to tell you that I dont use drugs. But this is kind of a tribute to all the people who has asked me if I use drugs when I draw. The pattern on the back of the head is supose to represent my mind and that its allready twisted, without any drugs. My mind is my only drug =D

Hope you like it...

what do you use to cover big black areas? you edited it on? because i dont see any "line" of the rotring or something..
AlbertFish Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2011
I do it with the pen.
But when I scan in the drawing there is a bit of "lines" but I just change the levels and a litle brightnes and contrast in photoshop. =)

Some can open your mind but mostly Drugs corrupt , destroy and oppress.

I love the structure of your ink flood. I think that if you worked on a white clay board this would have been tons easier then you would only had to put a blot on the left and right hand side and carve into it. THe white lines of the vines would have been more defined.
We really need to do a colab some day.
But it turned out beautifully on it's own. maybe you should consider joining the club?
However using plain scrathcboard can be a bitch. Since it doesn't seem to wnt to hold ink or watercolor. I end up coloring it digitally.
Good symbolism.
