Misha Collins portrait – process outline

It seems that people are actually interested in process outlines and work-in-progress shots and stuff like that, which surprises me even though I’m interested in other people’s process and WIPs. But my own? I know my own process. I’m the one doing it. It’s not interesting to me.

Sometimes, when trying to understand the world and its demands and preferences, it really helps to imagine you’re someone else.

I remembered to scan my Misha Collins drawing intermittently, so here’s a thing telling you how I did it. You might learn something! You might not! It’s all up in the air. You don’t even have to read it. It’s okay to just look at the pictures.

A run-down of my process drawing Misha Collins.

If you do want to read it, it’d be a good idea to click on the image to see it in full size.

I used Polychromos and Caran D’Ache Pablo colouring pencils, and it’s drawn on a smooth paper with vellum texture print. I think it’s technically calligraphy paper, and it doesn’t take pencil very well, but you get some cool effects.

That’s it. The rest is all explained in the actual thing, so… if you want to know more, read it!
