Diego Armando Maradona

This portrait was made with a 2B mechanical pencil.

This portrait was made with a 2B mechanical pencil.

I started drawing everything I would find interesting when I was 6 years of age. But did not start drawing realistic portraits until I was well into my twenties. I read books on it and began applying the techniques learned. The only thing I can say about capturing a likeness...it is very challenging but achievable!

Note from Kerry:

Hi Bruno,
I absolutely love your drawing - I can't begin to describe how impressed I am with it. It is all the more admirable because you have created this with a simple 2B mechanical pencil (my favorite!) - and that's simply awesome!

Megan Fox

Took me more than 6 hours to give the final touch.
This portrait is a bit different as the hair is moist and wet so i did struggle with that part.
This time i used mechanical pencil, 6B and paper buds(1B, 4B).

Note from Kerry:
Hi Gopesh
There is no sign that you struggled with this portrait drawing at all - it is so good! Very well done, congratulations!

This was a little more difficult than I thought it would be, but here she is!
It's Oprah Winfrey.

My scanner bleached out some of the details, the real drawing is much better.

Hope you like

Thanks
Jeff

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jeff, yes, we do have to allow for scanning when we view anything like this on the net. The difference between the real thing and the scanned image can be quite dramatic sometimes.

Having said all that, it still looks fantastic! You are a very good artist, I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at your work. Thanks Jeff.

This is another black and white picture from a magazine. I cut it down the middle and then taped half of it on my drawing paper, so I could try drawing in the missing half.

This time, I did most of a body, not just a face.

I have tried to do this with color photos and it doesn't turn out as well.

I am going to try to do a man the next time.

***Note from Kerry:
Wow Kim, look at what you can do!! You are doing so well. This is great!

The Queen Mother

I saw this photo in a book and because it was black & white, I thought it would be a good picture to draw.

After starting to draw, I changed it to an ink drawing.

The Queen Mother was 19 years old when she posed for this photograph.

***Note from Kerry:
It's unreal work, John, you must be a very good artist. Thanks for sharing it here.

Sir Stirling Moss

Sir Stirling Moss

Sir Stirling Moss

This is from a photo taken of Stirling Moss after winning the 1955 Mille Miglia (1,000 miles) of Italy race.

The dark part of his face is from road grime. He and his navigator averaged over 100 MPH for 1,000 miles! Some of those roads were barely goat paths!

This man gets my vote as "The Ironman."

We almost lost him earlier this year (2010), he fell down an elevator shaft three stories! He is now over eighty, and he survived!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Rico, your drawing is excellent and I just love the goggle effect.

Bobby Rahal

Indianapolis 500 Winner

Indianapolis 500 Winner

Bobby Rahal was being honored in Long Beach, California prior to last year's Grand Prix.

He was autographing items for fans, and I waited in line, with many others. Most people had him sign race programs, and such.

When it came time for me to talk to him, I handed him this portrait, and his face lighted up! He looked at it, then asked if I would like to go to a private party after the autograph event! I accepted, and had a great meal, and it was all free!


***Note from Kerry:
Rico, I can see why he was delighted with your drawing, your work is so impressive.

World's Greatest Designer?

World's Greatest Designer?

Prof. Luigi Colani is a designer of industrial products, and vehicles. Some think that he is weird, but he has designed some terrific products.

He seems to be very easy to talk to, and he is a huge personality. He posed for this portrait in 2007.


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Rico, you've done an excellent rendering of him, great job!

Courtney posed for this portrait a few years ago. She is the host of a car show on TV. She is also the "deadly three," young, tall, and beautiful! Who would think those qualities are bad? Our wives, that's who!


***Note from Kerry:
Hi Rico, she certainly is beautiful. I think you have done a fantastic job with your portrayal of her.

I saw "Big Al" at California Speedway, and asked him to pose for a photo. He very kindly said yes, and we talked for a minute. I drew this portrait from that picture.

A year later, I was asked to do the artwork for an old race track in Southern California, and Al and Parnelli were being inducted into the Hall of Fame. It was my job to have them autograph their portraits, and it was very gratifying to hear their comments. They are both very gracious guys!

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Rico, your brilliant work continues to inspire me, thank you very much for sharing it here with us.
