Yep, I have been pretty much drawing non-stop for the past few days. So in the wake, here are a couple of new pieces. The car has already found a new home and the portrait will be staying in my personal collection.
I think another portrait is to come next. I just love drawing faces! It feels so nice when the graphite forms into someone that is recognisable! That is, by those who know of who the portrait is LOL
These can be found on my deviantart profile.
A couple of new pieces. I think portraits will be forever my specialty. I love the detail and expression in faces. I still remember when I was younger, I would never draw faces on any of my creations because they were "just too hard to get right". Oh how times change.
Scanned versions of these can be found on my deviantart profile.
Here are my latest works. I have been working on a MUCH larger size lately. The one on the left is 73 cm high and the one on the right is 55 cm. I really am enjoying this larger size. So much more detail can be packed into them! Photos and scans just do them no justice.
The biggest difference is the time I have been taking on them. Both of these took about a week each. MUCH longer than my typical A4 sized works. The result is so much more satisfying, though!
These do have a bit of digital enhancement to make them print worthy, however. The background texture is not present on either of these pieces.
Lots of things going on lately.
Practice, practice, practice. It really does do a WORLD of good. If you think you can't, then stop thinking; just do it.
I fell like I still have a long way to go until I am at the point I want to be, but I am slowly starting to inch my way there. I have always wanted to do pinup art, but have always been intimidated by it. But as they say, you never know until you try. I am so glad I tried.
Here are a couple of the pieces I have completed recently. These pieces were referenced from photography used by Dead Lotus Couture. All information on the models and photographers can be found by clicking on the images.
These will be going up for auction this month.
I have always thought that an electric eraser is the best tool an artist can have. However, there are some drawbacks. At different points of my drawings, I like to have different widths of eraser. No eraser, besides a kneaded eraser can give me that option. So I struck a middle ground!
For those that would like to know my little secret:
Here is a short video on how it works. Please excuse my stutter... I am not used to filming myself like this LOL
