I was looking over some of my paintings and drawings lately, and I realised that I hadn’t drawn/painted a portrait in a while.
The one of my boyfriend doesn’t really count here, as I’m still working on that, and it needed to dry before I could apply any other layer.
I also wanted an excuse to sit down properly at my drawingboard to draw/paint/doodle for a longer period of time, so I thought, “hey! lets do it!”
But who to do? I didn’t want to hassle my boyfriend again, not too soon at least, since I’m already doing his profile (and yes, under protests 😉 ) so I figured I’d use mine.
What is easier to use than yourself?
I realised I also needed to update some of my profile pictures around the web too, so this was a win.
Here it is.
Took me 3 working days.. approx 15-16 hours I’d say. Still getting used to the board.
I added a few details a long the way too:
The earring, before the hair
And after the hair
The necklace I got from my boyfriend, and a close up of the eye
I have to say, I really enjoyed doing this. Although I still need to work on a few things, I’m mostly satisfied on how it turned out. But you know how an artist is.. 😉
(Especially when it comes to drawing/painting yourself)
