Donnie Wahlberg #4 by aurelia-acc

I think you did a fantastic job! The details are amazing. The eyes are full of life. The transition from dark to light tone is realisti...

Real nice technique. The eyes are strong and powerful looking yet they have a certain innocence about them. The hair is amazing and wel...

Here's an update on my portrait, "Dennis". I'm using Pentel P205 mechanical pencils still with HB and 2B leads as I work on the skin tone and texture. For the hair, I used a Tombow Mono Zero eraser to "draw" in the white hair then used 2B lead to draw the darker toned hair and shadows. This is also an exercise in patience as I'm drawing using the circulism technique which is drawing tiny tiny overlapping circles for the skin, though it's more of a circular motion I make with the pencils. More to come soon!

Here's another update on my portrait of my friend Dennis (aka xislandman). I'm working on the eyes using 4H, 2H, H, B, and 2B lead. I'm trying to improve the realism in my work. Still no blending. This is also an exercise in patience (because I don't have any ). I usually rush through my portraits, especially in the end which I know ultimately hurts the drawing in the end, but not this time. He has nice multicolor eyebrows which I'm having fun developing, I'm still working on them. I'm using a circulism technique still on the skin, I'm also focusing on the texture of the skin. More to come soon!

I'm working on a few drawings. I've lost a bit of confidence in my work. I feel that my skills aren't quite where I want them to be. To build my confidence, I thought I'd do a little portraiture work. Here's "Dennis", he's 11 x 14 graphite on Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper. For pencils, I'm using Pentel P205 mechanical pencils and Derwent Drawing pencils with 4H, 2H, H, B, and 2B leads. I'm not using any blending tools. For this one, I'm using a circulism technique where I create tone and texture using tiny tiny overlapping circles. I'm also wearing a magnifying visor to help me see how close and how tiny I'm making the circles (it's actually more of a circular motion I make with the pencil as opposed to actual circles). 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.
