Drawing Of Edward

Drawing Of Edward

Edward Scissorhands is my cousin's favorite movie, and she is madly in love with Johnny Depp; so I decided to surprise her with this Christmas present :)

This is the first portrait I've ever done, although I'm 15 but have always loved drawing random things, and I love how it came out!!! It might not be perfect, but I really did my best for my favorite cousin, and the effort paid off!! :)

**Note from Kerry:
Rosa, this is truly very good for your first portrait attempt. Your cousin must have been overwhelmed with such a thoughtful gift. It's something she can always treasure.

James Dean

The Rebel Without A Cause

The Rebel Without A Cause

The next drawing I did when I was only 12 years old was that of James Dean. I found a black & white picture of The Rebel Without A Cause, inside a magazine that I no longer remember which one it was. As soon as I saw it, it called out to me by saying "Shane you must draw me." So I did.

Notice on Lady In the Sky and James Dean, that there are no real boundaries bordering the drawings. I really knew nothing about drawing back then, so I never knew it was a common practice to create borders around illustration. So I never adopted that practice until I was 16. On a regular bases that is.

This drawing took me an entire day to complete. I had such a miserable time getting the nose right, on the 1956 star of the movie Giant. I still have a hard time drawing noses. Its such a crucial part in the creation of a portrait.

***Note from Kerry:
This is amazing. It's unreal that you did this when you were 12!

Mona Lisa

My Mona Lisa

My Mona Lisa

I tried this one just for the challenge. It took 3 days to complete.

It ended up having a spooky thing about it as the face follows you as you walk past. Normally, it's just the eyes on a portrait but this one must have a 3d effect drawn into it which it just generated while i was drawing it.

***Note from Kerry:
You must have incredible patience, Jon. It's impressive.

I took this drawing from the internet and copied it. I'm really pleased with it.

I have been doing portraits of my family and thought I would try something different.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jan, I love this! Did you use charcoal? I must do one of my own because I really like ol' Jack Sparrow.

***Note from Kerry:
Welcome Jessica! Your drawing is excellent! It seems to me that your drawings would be worthy of a frame. It's a shame this isn't on plain paper, the lines detract from your beautiful work.

Here is a skull that I drew with graphite.

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Jackie, this is very well done.

Submission guidelines for your drawings state that you need to write more than one line with your drawings. You can talk about whatever you like - it's your page - so it's good if you make it a fun page.

This is my first portrait

I saw some portraits and i taught myself to draw my own pictures. It is not so beautiful but i love this one because this is the first portrait that i draw:)

***Note from Kerry:
Hi Steffiona, this is a great first attempt. Keep drawing your portraits because you learn more techniques each time.

You obviously have a love for drawing, and that will enrich your life. It is so important to keep your first drawings. Keep practicing and good work!
