Illustrator Florian Nicolle (previously) has published a wonderful collection of his textured illustrations from 2011. Layering scans of newspaper, ink, paint, and a fair amount of digital retouching he arrives at these truly remarkable portraits.
This portrait contains a lot of texture and different mediums, giving a grimy feel for the overall piece. I would like to achieve a look like this in my final image. My chosen colour pallet would contain more colour than this image. (Florian Nicolle)
