Olivia Version 2.0 by rickcorbett
Olivia Version 2.0

So, because my drawing of Olivia is a commissioned piece, her mom wanted to make a small change. Olivia is known for her hair and her eyes. She usually wears her hair in a ponytail with a bow on the top of her head. So naturally, her mom asked if I could add a bow and ponytail at the top of her head. 

Because this wasn't in my initial reference photo, I had to use artistic license to create a bow and ponytail. Here's my new finished drawing of Olivia.

I have Olivia's face about 95% finished.  I still want to add another layer of graphite to smooth out the tone and contrast a bit more.  I will be 100% finished with Olivia's face by my next update, then I can work on the clothes and she'll be ready to be framed and wrapped. More to come soon!

Here's an update  on my portrait of Olivia.  I'm  blending with a medium tortillion, a cotton swab, and soft tissue paper.  For pencils, I'm using Pentel P205 mechanical pencils with 4H, 2H, H,B, and 2B leads.   This is a Christmas present for her dad.  Mores to come soon!

Artist | Professional | Traditional Art

I am a self-taught artist. I am also a member of the Woburn Guild of Artists. I am inspired not only by other artists but from life itself. I am inspired by people, textures, smells, sounds, all my senses seem to come alive when I draw. My drawings take me on an artistic journey of self discovery. I feel my soul awaken when I draw. GOD has given me a gift and it's a gift I hope to use to bring people closer together. It's a gift I hope to use to capture the beauty that's in this World. I don't want my drawings to simply be pictures drawn on pieces of paper - I want my drawings to be a celebration of life.
