This is my first drawing ever so i know it's not that good

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.

Portraits

Hi Andre,

I like all of your portraits but I thought it would be helpful to you if you used a stump or a torchon when you are blending.

These are little pencil like shapes of tightly rolled paper which you can use to reach the little areas say around the eyes or mouth.

There are also what are known as colour shapers. There have a handle resembling a brush but have a rubber tip. These come in various sizes and shapes.

I sometimes use these and find them helpful. They also prevent ones hands, face, etc., etc., getting covered in pastel or charcoal!!!!!!!!

Regards,

Dorothy
