Highlighting skin textures and using double-exposure effects, Thomas Cian uses graphite and a bit of watercolor pencil or gouache to add the finishing touches to his portrait art. Already known for his Moleskine drawings, he recently published a few animated GIFs showing his start-to-finish process at Behance.
