Portrait Practice

I've not drawn many people before and since members of my family refuse to pose for me, I decided to use google for reference. Sat with sketchpad in front of monitor, each one took around an hour to complete. I found the experience very enjoyable and am pleased with the results. I think I'm going to try some faster character sketches next.


  1. These are fabulous! I'm pants at putting names to faces but did the - oh oh! I know! er.... he/she was in... bit, really nice style. Time to bribe the family to sit for you methinks! Invite them round for a game of Monopoly (lasts for hours) and get stuck in!

  2. Thanks, Stephen, that sounds like a great plan. I was thinking about serving extra large portions for New Years lunch and sketching them afterwards, as they slept it off. :)
