Baby’s Portrait

Image

 

Materials: 2H, HB, 2B, 4B

This one was really fun to draw. It was time consuming taking about 16 hours. I personally love drawing babies. I think their expressions are so much fun to capture. Overall I’m pleased with the way this one turned out.

Face of a Lonely Girl.

Image

Time: 2 hours

Materials: 4B, HB, kneaded eraser.

Since I’ve been drawing “headless people” lately, I figured I’d draw a face. Let me just say, portraits are HARD. I rushed through this, which is probably evident. I like the emotion in the girls face. I’ve identified with the feelings she is experiencing: lonliness, sadness, hopelessness. Thank God I’m on the other side. There IS hope, there is such thing as victory & overcoming. And that’s my story, and that’s why I drew this girl. She USED to be me. I felt what she felt and drawing this “self-portrait” I guess you can say, was a refreshing reminder of where I came from–a dark place. It’s not the case anymore. Now I’m whole, healed and FREE. And though this was the old “me”, it’s never a bad thing to reminisce about where you ONCE were, as it serves as a reminder to be grateful for how far you’ve come. 

PS I still haven’t improved at drawing hair… womp womp. 

Nose

Materials: B Pencil.

I thought noses would be difficult. Turns out they are surprisingly easy, the hard part is mastering the many, many angles of a nose. I also decided to keep it simple & use only one pencil. And I didn’t do any blending, just cross-hatch shading. This nose took me about 10 minutes.
