Happy Valentines & a new drawing!

Aside from a few finishing touches I finally finished this drawing. I haven’t been able to work on it very often so it was slow going but here it is! :)

Happy Valentines Day everyone!

The inspiration for this drawing and the major reference photo was this beautiful picture taken by Hart-Worx. Visit their website by clicking here or check out their Deviant Art gallery here.

A drawing.

I haven’t been able to do much drawing at all the past couple of months but this is one of the two things I managed to turn out.

I really like the toned paper I got! I wish it was a bit smoother though.

I drew a picture. And Simply Three!

As you can see, Simply Three is awesome! Check out their Kickstarter campaign here and help them reach their goal!

Joshua James portrait drawing

I’m a huge fan of Joshua James’ music. So, I decided he’d be my next portrait subject! I think that there’s still some work I’d like to do to this one – if I ever get around to it!

Foy Vance drawing.

The title pretty much says it all. This is a portrait drawing of the incredible Foy Vance. I started this quite a while ago but haven’t had time to finish it until yesterday/today. For the last bit of this one I got to try out my new Faber-Castell perfection eraser pencil. They’re awesome for highlights and you can sharpen them to a pretty sharp point for the fine details. I’m really liking it so far.

Foy Vance

Side note: He was wearing a hat in the actual picture so I didn’t cut it off at the forehead to avoid drawing the hair ;) But admittedly I did pick a photo of him sans facial hair for that very reason.

Shading, shading, shading!

Almost done, just need to do the lower lashes and some touching up!

Angel tattoo drawing

This is the angel tattoo that I drew for a family friend a couple of months ago. I’m pretty happy with the way that it turned out! I should have tried to get a better picture (without the glare on the lower half) before I sold it but ah well, next time.

And look – hair! I hate drawing hair (I’m not patient enough) so I usually get to the hair and quit -which is why I have a drawer full of bald people. I’m getting the hang of it, but I really have to be in the mood.

A horse for my mom.

I drew this for my mom last Christmas. She spent most of her time as a kid and teenager riding horses. I know that she really, really misses that. It’s funny because I miss it too and I never really had it to begin with. I absolutely love horses, I find them to be an amazing healer/medicine for the body and soul. They’re such a magnificent creature.

Vivien Leigh minimal.

I’m not doing so well as far as pain goes, so, for the moment I’m just going to post another one of my drawings. This isn’t my favorite drawing but I was quite happy with how the depth and shading of the eyes turned out. Eyes are by far my favorite feature to draw.

Elizabeth Taylor minimal.

Minimals are the perfect solution to my short attention span and pain problems. I can complete a drawing without spending nearly as much time on it and still have it look presentable. It may not be as good as the fully detailed and shaded thing but hey, it works well for me.
