....is hard to shade with pencil. for the first drawings I just imagined the skin was black and didn't even try
Then I tried. I tried inversions:
Then I tried sculpture.
I wanted to paint someone black and take a photo but I never convinced anyone to do it.
Then I started commissioning other people to draw Harris so I could look at how they did it. Which was very entertaining, and educational.
Then I tried some more.
I'm still trying to learn.
random Paragan doodles
I had entirely forgotten about this sketch, which Is why this wiki project is needed. this was from a storm-artists redux project, based on an old picture of Harris before he was Paragangian, in which he had a beard and long shaggy hair. looks like someone from the lord of the rings or something.
second version of same Redux, with Harris as Paragangian. this does not look as I imagine him to look.
this is the sketch the redux's were based on. origionally I think Harris had olive skin and shaggy hair and dressed very sloppy and casual. before he was paragangian he was also alot older the Jason, sort of a father figure, and a team leader rather than a guy who worked alone. sortof like Scotty from Star Trek
