Portraits! =) - March 3rd 2009, 06:57 AM

All done in art class and in charcoal, but it was a long time ago and I forgotten most of the techniques by now. Still I'd love to hear what your guys think.

I think that's pretty amazing

I'm a terrible artist, and especially bad at people, so to me it's more like double amazing.

But those are really good!

Thank you! <3 But to be fair I had some help on the last one, my teacher had to fix the eyes.

Still, though, amazing And now that I have focused on the eyes, wow they look real! You know, like you can see into their depths. Not just on the last picture, all of the pictures. You're really talented

Those are very good. I wouldn't agree with the realism comment, but the style in which they're drawn is quite unique (in the good way). I particularly like the mouth/forehead of the second one and the jaw of the third one. Really nice work.

I love drawing people! The second and third are particularly well done. In the first the eyes are a little flat, but cute, for sure!

Oh man, I think it's time to break out some charcoal!

I did a drawling of myself like that in art class once. That stuff is hard to do! So way to go. They look really good. =]

As has been said, I love these portraits! please post more. The thing I really like about your style is that the faces look like they have a history behind them. When you can add character to a drawing you should know you're talented


When you say "never", I'll say "lie"
When you say "always", I'll say "true"
When you say "love", I'll say "you"
I'll say "you"

It gets better.

They're all really good but I personally think that the last one is the best. :]
