There isn't much to say about this picture. He is Joe Lawrence - a famous Indian actor.

Actually, I was not that interested while drawing this portrait, but anyway i managed to complete it...and that's it!!!

***Note from Kerry:
It's good, Nithya. Drawing anything when you are not interested is a very tough thing to do. I like to draw only what I want to draw. That way, I protect my enthusiasm.

Angelina Pencil Portrait

Angelina Pencil Portrait

Hi,
My name is Rose, I am a self taught Artist and have been drawing since I was about five years old. I love to draw for relaxation and creating art give me a natural high like nothing else. Seeing something come to life on paper or canvas that I creating is Awesome!

Unfortunately as of yet I am a struggling Artist, I usually work as a Bartender or waitress, and everytime I show someone I work with my artwork they always say the same thing -
"what are you doing here?"

I never really know the answer to that, except that it is very difficult to make a living doing the one thing I am really Great at and LOVE.......... Art

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Rose, your work is truly lovely. Awesome, even.

You only need to believe you will succeed as an artist, and it will happen. I wish you every happiness.

Hi, I am Sweety. I love people who knows art and i love myself too.

I started my art work at the age of 8 years and won many prizes too so it inspired and encouraged me.

I was going well with my drawings but later when i entered in to my 11 standard, i wasn't getting time so stopped doing paintings.

Recently i started it again after 8years .. and I am loving it.. here is my first drawing.

***Note from Kerry:
It's great to see you have fallen in love with drawing all over again, Sweety. You're off to a great start, keep drawing and keep enjoying yourself.

No Fear

No Fear

No Fear

I found this portrait on album art searching the internet. I think the expression of her face - 'nothing scares me' - inspired me to have a go at drawing it myself.

The cartoon style portrait is not my usual way of drawing, but I thought I would give it a go and see how it turns out :)

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Sarah, this type of art attracts me too. You have done a very good job capturing that fearless expression.

Getting Started

by Tammy
(Tolono, Illinois, USA)

Hi there

Hi there

I am just beginning to draw and would like to be able to draw realistic portraits. I a trying to "self teach" through books, and a course I bought on line just recently over the internet which I hope will help.

I am a mother of a 3 year old so I do not get as much time to practice as I would like, but I am trying to get more in.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Tammy,
Your drawing is very well done for someone who is just starting. You will notice improvements with each drawing you do. Isn't it exciting?

Portraits are a tough subject, so I hope you stick with it and give yourself some time to learn it all.

Grids are also handy when you are learning portrait drawing.

I did this drawing from a how-to book and I used colored pencil. I did my best to make her look natural and the hair look real.

I have been practicing from my books and I am getting a lot out of them. Some day I hope to accomplish the impossible task of being able to draw portraits in no time....

***Note from Kerry:
Wow Tammy, this is really very good! You go girl! I can see you are putting a lot of work into learning portraits and I'm proud of your progress.

My First Successful Portrait

by Alfred
(Tristate area)

My first portrait

My first portrait

I took up drawing as a way to lose stress about two years ago and really enjoy it. I don't do it everyday but definitely on a weekly basis.

I'm trying different things, I like charcoal and I am discovering soft pastel which I really enjoy because of the colors and it's quite flexible.

I am happy to have fallen upon this site and enjoy looking at the efforts of others to make something nice and beautiful.
all the best to everyone
Alfred

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Alfred, I am pleased you found us too! It's great to see you are already experimenting with all mediums.

You have done a very good job with this portrait.

Drawing is certainly a fantastic stress reliever, plus I think it adds excitement to our lives.

Drawing Of A Female

Drawing Of A Female

I did this drawing of a female. I copied it from a how to draw book.

It's not exactly as the female in the book. It turned into another woman i thought about.

Always draw what you see not what you are thinking of.

Hope ya all like it i know i do.

***Note from Kerry:
Ronald, I continue to be impressed with the progress you are making with your drawings. Good work.

I drew this a while ago but it wasn't as good as this until I saw lee hammond teach proper shading on youtube. Now I think I have made him look real.

I am an artist over 10 years now.

Hi Ronald, this is very good. Thanks for sharing your progress, it's exciting to see how much you have improved.

A Female Portrait

A Female Portrait

I drew this last night so I can start practicing again. I found it to hard to draw at this angle so I gridded the whole thing.

That's the best I can do so far.

***Note from Kerry:
Well I think you have done a good job, Ronald.

I have discovered that a blending stump is handy for portraits. It softens the lines and makes your drawing more realistic.

Keep going, you are doing really well!

Hope Seems Far Away

by Tess
(Guernsey WY USA)

Hope Seems Far Away

Hope Seems Far Away

The inspiration for this picture came from a National Geographic, probably my favorite source for pictures to draw.

There's something to be said for drawing a person that very few people know.....as long as it looks some-
what human, one can throw the original away and people think it looks good! :)

Anyhow, this was done with 5 & 7 lead mechanical pencil, my blending stumps,and erasers. Suggestions would be appreciated!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Tess, I see you are a fan of the mechanical pencil, too! I think your drawing is brilliant. Don't change it!

My Precious Diamonds

My Mom

My Mom

These are my first, second third etc in my life that I've tried.

First one of my Dad is in pencil. And then my sons in soft pastel and then few years later my two daughters in law.... all when they were small.

In between I've done some others also. I love to do flowers also... that eases my mind a bit. It is almost as if the emotion is a bit at ease then. But still got a lot to learn. I am still tooooo hard on my medium ... I think... but have to sketch more to get the hang of it.... and also get into the excellence mode and leave the perfection for God.... this is my first time here... this was my Mom.

***Note from Kerry:
Ina, you have good-looking parents, you have done them proud with your excellent drawing skills.

Practicing Portraits

I've only just started doing portrait drawings in the last two months and this is probably one of my first successful ones.

I did this one using a 2b and an F pencil.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Danielle, if this is what you can produce after 2 months, you are doing very well! You have managed to give character and that isn't an easy task. Keep at it, you are going along beautifully.

Sheba Lady

Shebra Lady by Elaine Hancock

Shebra Lady by Elaine Hancock

My name is Elaine and I am a self taught artist.

It all happened back in 2004, when I tore ligaments in the right knee. I could not believe that I had to sit down so long without being able to get up and down as fast as I wanted. I then realized that I had to find something to do that would consist of sitting down for long periods of time.

I choose drawing, because when I was a little girl I would draw all of my paper dolls and their clothes and build houses out of shoe boxes and cardboard.

My seven year old son was drawing very well at the time and also, he inspired me. Because I could not afford an Artist School, I joined North Light book club and ordered the books that caught me interested.

I love to draw portraits and fashion, but I try to draw everything in order to find your gift. In 2008, I started to paint and I love it. Don't just draw, do everything and have fun doing it.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Elaine, I used to love creating paper dolls and their clothes, too! It looks like you have discovered a true talent within yourself. I'm so pleased to see you are enjoying the best hobby in the world!

I thought i would give it a go.
i struggle a bit with the nose and lips and I found it hard to get the size right.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Teresa, don't worry we all struggle with the same things when we are learning to draw portraits.

I have discovered that we just need to find the right teacher - the one that connects with us the most.

I decided to draw a person for once, because i am terrible at it and want to get better. It actually turned out pretty good! And now that i think about it, it even looks like someone i know!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Franki, I wonder if you used your mouse or a digital tablet? Either way, it's great that you are experimenting and having fun with drawing. Thanks for sharing it with us.
