Dariel the First
by Andre W. Humphreys
This is my first drawing ever so i know it's not that good
I'm a beginner at this, but I'm satisfied. This is actually my first drawing. I used 9x12 on pastel paper, with pastel and charchoal. I was inspired by a female friend who is an art teacher and i wanted to prove that I could impress her with my work without tutoring, so I decided to give it a try drawing my best friend at the time.
I was really challenged in getting the drawing to look like the actual person and also the charchoal didn't give me that realistic 3d effect, but I was pleased that it actually came out looking somewhat like the individual.
knowing my level of improvement and understanding 6 months and 3 drawings afterwards, there are a lot of things I would do differently like using napkins instead of my fingers...LOL, and not using passport size pictures for refference.
