Here's an update on my portrait of "Deja".   I'm using Pentel P205 mechanical pencils still with 4H, 2H, H, B, and 2B leads.  I'm blending using a medium tortillion, q-tip cotton swabs, and a hake brush.  The highlights I'm creating using a kneaded eraser and an eraser stick to pull out the highlights.   I'm using a Uni-Ball White Gel Pen for the white hairs and highlights in the eyes.   Almost finished, more to come soon!

Here's an update on my portrait of "Deja". I'm using Pentel P205 mechanical pencils with 4H, 2H, H, B, and 2B leads. I'm also using a Uni-ball Stigno white ink gel pen for the highlights in the eyes and tiny white hairs and whiskers. I find this really helps bring her to life and adds a certain realism. More to come soon!

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.
