Danny Trejo digital portrait

I got a hold of an iPad with Procreate last month and have been enjoying creating with it. I’ve only created a few pieces so far but I just created this Danny Trejo digital portrait and had a little breakthrough during the process.

Back in 2013, I created an 18×18″ screen print on wood panel that featured a portrait of Danny Trejo. The original artwork was lost in a fire we had in my studio building. When I was playing with some of the preferences and layer adjustments I realized there was a halftone feature built-in. I decided to recreate the original piece and I did a strange dance of splitting my reference between the original source image and the old wood panel print.
