Portrait of Millie Bobby Brown

If you have been reading my latest blog posts you saw some of my process of developing this portrait. I started this to continue my concentration on portraiture and cause of my obsession with Stranger Things. The hardest part for me was getting the angle of the face and this is something I’m continuing to…

In Process 2

This is a continuation of my What I’m Working On post. This is everything I’ve done in the past day since the last post. This one I’m very close to finishing but I think I’m going to add a background to make it look more complete. This second piece I’ve decided to keep as a sketch….

Three Portraits

I decided to frame my portraits (see previous posts) to put in an art show. These three portraits are all copic drawings I did over the summer after buying a pack of markers specifically for colouring skin. Since the frame had 3 slots and the first of the portraits I did didn’t match the rest,…

3 Portraits: Girl 2

This piece took me about a week of staring and wondering what I needed to add/fix to finally finish it today. This was done using alcohol-based markers. With my new markers (see previous portrait post) I actually have the ability to draw people with a variety of skin tones so this was a fun challenge…

3 Portraits: Girl 1

I bought some more markers halfway through completing this one so I was able to get a lot more contrast in the face than I could with the previous one. I think what I need to work on now is getting more contrast/definition in the hair. I’m really happy with how this turned out because…

Trinity

This is my first finished piece of the summer. It took me about an hour to complete. I focused mainly on developing the face rather than the whole image to leave the face as the focal point. For this I also decided to use a pen for outlines/details instead of a darker colour but I’m…

Fairytale

I’ve been thinking a lot about what my study will be for grade 12 art and (so far) I’ve decided on fairytales (and playing off this idea by showing darker elements, using irony, focusing on lesser known ones, or applying it to real life etc) so I decided to do a couple small (about the…

Copic Practice

I recently bought some new copic-style markers and had fun testing them out. This is a page from my sketchbook with all my quick copic drawings.

Copic-Liza Nugumanova

I did this copic over a couple of days. I didn’t sketch it out in pencil much before like I normally do for copics but instead I used a light grey copic marker to draw outlines and added colour after that. I used a black copic marker to do outlines instead of a fine liner…

Copic Practice

These are just some quick copics I did as preparation for my last project. The two people are from Rococo paintings and the tree I drew because I was going to put it in my painting but I decided not to.

Crescent Beach

One of my goals this term is to work on scenery so I decided to try drawing a scenery using copic markers. This is my first time trying it and I have to say it was very difficult with the limited amount of copic markers I have and I had to use a black sharpie…

Flowers

These are some flowers I drew. The first two (yellow and pink flowers) I drew at the beginning of the month. I focused on using the pen to shade and used light colours. The red/orange flower I drew today and focused on using bright colour and only pen to line the petals. To create shadows…
