Maille Family Portrait by rickcorbett
Maille Family Portrait
Here is my completed commissioned portrait.  This is 14 x 17 (the largest piece I've ever done).  This is graphite on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper.  For pencils I used Pentel P205 mechanical pencils with 4H, 2H, H, B, and 2B leads.  I blended using soft tissue paper and a stump.

Maille Family Portrait WIP 1
Here's my line drawing and first work in progress image for my newest portrait commission. 

This is 14 x 17 graphite on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper.   So far for pencils, I used a Pentel P2015 mechanical pencil with a 2B lead. 

I love using 2B lead because I can get such a tonal range just by using more or less pressure and by layering my graphite. 

This is how I always start my portraits.  I call this stage in my process the "ugly" stage.  The lines are loosely drawn and quickly drawn which makes the drawing at this point look like a 2 year old did it.  But this stage is used for placement of features only.  Sort of like a road map, I map out how I want the portrait to look.   Once I have everything where I want them to be and all the features mapped out and mark where the shadows are, I can now start adding tone and texture to bring the portrait to life. 

More to come soon!!!

Ricky Corbett
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
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.
