I think that portraits are my favorite thing to draw and here is a sketch I did recently for someone. I am going to continue on the self portrait I started a few weeks ago, but I also just found a blank illustration board I never did anything with. I will be creating another piece soon and might incorporate some paint and glitter. In the meantime, I will also be packing and preparing to move into a place of my own where I will be setting up an easel and starting to paint some more.
It is really a shame that I am so busy this semester because I finally have the chance to create and focus on my own personal work. Pretty soon I will be finishing an online class that currently takes up about 90 percent of my free time so I will finally finish all my pieces for gallery. I’m nervous about doing another self portrait and so far I have only done this sketch. I am still debating on the kind of imagery I want to incorporate and whether or not to include color.
The real drawing will be vertical, 22×30 inches, and the self portrait wont be taking up as much space on the page. If anyone has any fun ideas let me know! I will be working on sketches for this one throughout the next week.
Now that I’ll be graduating, I finally have the chance to work on my own pieces with no requirements. I stress out a lot when it comes to drawing on large sheets of thick paper. I never want to mess up so my goal was to start by making a tiny drawing. That way I know exactly how to handle it once I go big. Here’s what I have so far:
