Hurray! Here goes the first portrait for my 30 minute art project. But not really the first ( see Timmy ).
The girl on the drawing is my sister-in-law, Visia. Even though I am still planning to do this little project of making fast portraits for study, she already asked me to do her portrait. Aside from that, it just happened to be her birthday yesterday. (Happy Birthday Sis!)
On the process of making this portrait, I was wondering what medium to use. I am even thinking of using ink or colored pencils. But I might not finish it on time so, the fastest medium is just the simple and common graphite pencil.
And oh btw, you may find it a bit similar to Artboy68’s 100 portrait project although mine is under time pressure.. lol XD.
That artist is amazing! Do check his art out.
As for me, this is just a simple study on doing fast portraits for practice. I tend to be a little too perfectionist on my art that I consume a lot of time on every commercial portrait that I do. In doing this, I hope to be able to discover my own art style and make it a little more spontaneous and fun.
I hope you like my drawing! If you want me to draw your portrait just let me know on the comments below. 🙂
Have a great day!
