All Seeing Eye

by David Tierney
(Ireland)


I started this drawing in pencil and then took out the water colours to experiment.

The result, i think, is not bad. I only used black and white.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Dave,
You've done an awesome job of the eye. I love the skin texture right under the eye, good work. Thanks for sharing!

Note from Kerry:

It's lovely, Camelia! In fact, it's absolutely beautiful. May I ask if you use grids to draw and help with proportion?

I am sorry your other drawing can't be uploaded Camelia, because it has a site name as a watermark and this section is not for promotional purposes... just us kids sharing and admiring each other's work. Whenever you are unsure, you can check the submission rules. I hope you understand because I am sure everyone is thoroughly enjoying your drawings.

Woman

Woman In Thought

Woman In Thought

Hi, my name is Charlene Young. I am new to the Website.

This drawing is my first portrait drawing. I drew this from my head. I was trying to combine all of the techniques I learned.

I am still learning how to draw faces so that they are more realistic.

Constructive criticism appreciated.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Charlene, portrait drawing is the toughest thing to learn, mostly it takes good patience and practice. I am very impressed that you drew this from memory.

My advice to you would be to practice with graphite first, to master every technique like blending and shading. Only then would I introduce color.

This is no one special. This is just where my pencil and my mind take me.

Gee Betsy, wouldn't it be freaky if you meet someone who looks just like him one day?

Eyes are the most intriguing features to do.

You have done a brilliant job and you have captured expression. Well done.

Always and Forever

by Kat

For My Friend

For My Friend

This is the first and only portrait drawing I have ever done. I drew it 4 months ago. It is a portrait of a close friend of mine who was recently murdered. He was trying to change his life for the better and be a role model for his younger brother. This meant getting away from the gang life. He was shot in the heart after refusing an order from another gang member to assault an innocent person. He died trying to do the right thing; trying to better himself.

I think what I like best about it is that so far everyone who has seen it has known instantly who it was and said that I did a great job on it.

I can see every single mistake but I've been told I am my own worst critic. I used the woodless pencils to draw it and then did the coloring and shading with colored pencils. I used an eraser to do the shading.

The reason I titled it Always and Forever is because when he was in jail one time he would write me letters and every letter he signed it "Live Life Lovely, Love You Always and Forever".

I drew this as a sort of tribute to him and I hope he knows that I will never forget him and will love him Always and Forever.


***Note from Kerry:
Hello Kat,
That is a sad little story, I am so sorry you lost your friend in such a tragic way.

I stared at your drawing in amazement - to know it is your first and only portrait drawing is to know you have done an incredible job! All artists are their own worst critics (it keeps us on our toes!) but if you don't tell anyone what you see wrong, then no one will see it. That is a beautiful tribute.

Practicing Angles

by Rena woodby

Just trying to drawing different style and angles.

Just trying to drawing different style and angles.

I am still have difficultiydrawing some things. So i trying to drawing anything i think may be different. I still have problems with drawing feet and the body.

As it is said "Practice make perfect." Thanks so much.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Rena (Lorraine)
You are doing beautifully and you're definitely doing the right thing - practice sure does make perfect but the funny thing is we don't really realize we improve with each and every one we do. I think you're great!
