Re: November/December 2011 Portrait Challenge !

Hiya Sandra;

I am so happy to see your post. You must feeling good or having such a burning passion for art to produce such a beatiful drawing even when you are in 'not a very comfortable' environment. Your passion is infectious and the drawing is skillful.

I'm happy you are feeling better

Kim

Re: November/December 2011 Portrait Challenge !

Really nice drawings here ROy, Kim, Steve and Loving art. I thought I would take a break from the portrait swop and have a goo at the wee babe. Thanks for some great references Kevin

Alexandra -- the blue drawing is beautiful -- so pretty and expressive
and Turpentine (Jen) you've captured the sweet sticky gooiness of that cute baby!

Re: November/December 2011 Portrait Challenge !

Roy - Great sketches! I especially like Li-Lu's portrait. You captured her expression very well.
Kim - I like the skin tones of your portrait. His nose seems to get a bit longer and his mouth seems to be shifted slightly off the centre.
Steve - Nice rendition! I like the silk feeling of her clothes.
Sandra - She looks fabulous in a blue filter and the background goes well with the overall mood.
Jen - You captured her age correctly in the sketch. It is not easy depicting kids, you did good job here! Her head is slightly tilted. The right corner of the mouth is higher than the left. The same is true for her right nostril and eye.

Re: November/December 2011 Portrait Challenge !

Here is rendition of Mr. Hopkins. I am thinking to try this in oil if I have time.
I think the contour of the upper portion of his head as well as the left lower part is not accurate. His gaze seems to be fixed on the viewer in the drawing while in the photo he looks a little up. I don't know how to achieve this look.
C& C welcome.

Re: November/December 2011 Portrait Challenge !

Thankyou Kim , Im really flattered at your kind words of me, So Lovely of you all Jen , Melissa and Anna....

Nice take on the baby Ladies , Randa you have been a rather busy Lady , nice workings

and Anna I really love that drawing of Sir Hop-a-long. ..Ok so I renamed the dude ... I do love him hes a fab actor ...I would suggest if you adjust the amount of shadow /shading you have around his Iris this should fix the prob , really squint at the pic and decide is it half tone your seeing or just shadow shapes , anything in the half light must be classed as shadow .....

Lovely start Ella ...

Re: November/December 2011 Portrait Challenge !

Sandra - Thanks a lot for you kind remarks. I will re-evaluate the values as you suggested to see where the problem dwells.

Re: November/December 2011 Portrait Challenge !

My version of 'Lauren's Da Bill'-a wonderful picture-reminded me straight off of someone like Johnny Cash or Hank Williams.
My first ever post on portrait challenge.
I found the more I worked on it the less of a likeness i got. About 3 hours total

2b pencil,willow charcoal and white pastel on murano pastel paper 6 x 9 inches.
C & C more than welcome,as I am a complete novice.

Cheers
Brian
