Welcome to my art gallery of Nine Portraits from Sktchy (app for iPhone) photos:
I choose photos for the characteristics I find appealing in a photo, something that grabs my eye.
I am sure it was his red hair and beard that got me to draw "Paul".
I am using Copic Markers and I liked the challenge of her skin tones and shadows.
This young woman asked us to draw her and her boyfriend for his birthday.
She said she liked this one.
I made some egregious errors on this drawing, but saved it nonetheless. I have learned in SBS that there are no mistakes and was happy with the outcome once I "fixed" them.
She had a spunky attitude and wonderful hair to draw!
I liked her red hair and lips in contrast to her green eyes. And I also had to fix some errors.
This one went more smoothly. I loved the blue streak across her face.
Again, a painted face drew my attention here, but I age regressed the woman in the photo to that of a little girl.
I continued to draw all week long in coffee shops using my sticker conversation balloons for added fun.
Some times I just add my own dialogue directly to the page.
And sometimes I make my own voice balloons and cut and paste them to the page.
They were obviously talking to softly for me to hear.
But be sure that I am making up these conversations.
They really did pray before they ate their lunch.
He kept looking at me out of the corner of his eye. I pretended I was drawing someone else. He left quickly.
I had a good week drawing. I hope you did too. Thanks for coming by and thanks for any words you leave me. They always encourage and inspire to me to keep drawing.
Wishing you a Creative Week Ahead!
