Anybody interested in learning how to draw interesting (graphite) portraits?

May 13, 2007 § 5 Comments

If so you might want to check out this fantastic tutorial Armin Mersmann is doing on WetCanvas. It’s called “The Creative Process in Portrait Drawing“. I can recomend it to anyone, it’s really amazing. Armin introduces us to three different kinds of portraits: the narrative portrait, the symbolic portrait and the homage.

Actually I found his instructions so full of inspiration that I started drawing a portrait right away. It is going to be a symbolic one and it’s title being “reflective mind“. The beginning was easy, but now I hope that I’m going to find the time to finish it.

Well, I think it actually suits this weeks edm challenge (“draw hair”) as well.

Monthly Colored Pencil Challenge March (2007)

March 16, 2007 § 2 Comments

This is another challenge done for wetcanvas this month. This time for the colored pencil forum. It always amazes me to see how well colored pencils work on black paper. Maybe that’s because I still associate CPs with those cute litte cheapies I used to draw with in elementary school. However artist’s grade CPs are rather comparable to pastels.

March Pastel Strokes (2007)

And here is my submission for the pastel strokes challenge in march (WetCanvas). I have to confess that this is my very first landscape ever… actually I hate(d) landscapes, but I had to realize that I learned most from those things I originally did not like.
