Felix Kjellberg aka PewDiePie
9 x 12 graphite on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg born 24 October 1989, better known by his online alias PewDiePie (pew-dee-py), is a Swedish video game commentator on YouTube. PewDiePie specializes in Let's Play videos of the horror and action video game genres. Since 15 August 2013, PewDiePie's channel has been the most subscribed channel on YouTube, being surpassed briefly in November and December 2013 by YouTube's Spotlight channel. Holding the position since 23 December 2013, the channel has reached over 33 million subscribers, as of November 2014. Additionally, his channel is one of the fastest growing YouTube channels, having grown from 3.5 million subscribers to 19 million in 2013.

Here's my line drawing for my newest portrait. This is Felix Kjellberg, also known as YouTube celebrity Pewdiepie. This is a gift for my niece. This is 9 x 12 graphite on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. For the line drawing, I initially draw on plan copy paper. I start with the eye then I try to "eyeball" measure all other features off of the drawn eye. I use a 2B pencil to draw the line drawing which I call the "ugly stage" of my drawing process because the lines are drawn quickly and looks like a two year old did it. But my line drawing is for placement purposes only, sort of like a road map. Once I am content with the way the line drawing looks and I have everything where it should be, I can now start to add tone and texture and try to bring Pewdiepie to life on paper. More to come soon!

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.

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.
