Re: Portrait Challenge for April 2010...

Kevin, thank you for the challenging references this month.

I chose the first photo and I wanted to focus on the structure and gesture of the head in my interpretation.

Roy-p: I love the saturated colors in your sketch.
doctasi: what a subtle charcoal. beautiful
brattgirl: I think you captured the head tilt and gesture here. very nice
turnesol: love the color balance and the eyes.
123harry: wow. you really captured the pose the expression on this one
IslanderNL: what a beautifully executed watercolor. love the richness of the strokes
bentaye: excellent likeness. the hands must've been hard on that one
loving art: yeah you picked the hard one. but the result is fabulous. i started this one and gave up
zoo sooted: I love the pen work and the lines. really nice.
kevin: Nice gesture and you got the head tilt and mass. want to see more
erinemily: very nice subtle tones in the flesh. nice composition here

By far the most fun and edgy reference photos yet. Everyone is doing an amazing job.

Re: Portrait Challenge for April 2010...

hi everybody. I am usually on the pen and ink forum but I have been trying to self teach myself to do portraits. So I am very new at drawing people, my subjects are usually animals.
I have had a go at this challenge but have just done it in pencil. Not brave enough to try different medium yet!! Some fantastic work here. The Pastels look great!!! Thanks for the inspiration!!

Re: Portrait Challenge for April 2010...

It's the last day of April -- where has this month gone!?

This has been a terrific challenge, and I encourage folks (such as myself) to keep posting up work here once May starts, as this is just too good to stop>

Meanwhile, I'll be starting a new Portrait Challenge thread for May -- look for it tomorrow.
