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…

What I’m Working On

If you’re a huge Stranger Things fan like me you can really appreciate these drawings I’m doing. Because I finished binging all of season 2 on the day it came out, I’ve had a lot of time to draw. I started these two new pieces to integrate my obsession into my art work. Disclaimer: these…

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…

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…

Anne

I did this drawing of a girl (that I am going to send to her). I went with a more cartoony look by making the eyes large, the colours flatter, and by using less of the pen to shade. I used a silver pen for the tiara and earring so when you see it in…

Neveah

This was another quick copic I did of my newest family member. I was trying to focus on face drawing techniques. I think the eyebrows, eyes, and nose were very successful but I would like to work more on the face shape, mouth, ears, and hair. I think I captured the light on her face…
