I've been looking at a lot of minimal drawings for a while and I really love some of them. I especially love *IleanaHunter style. So I decided to have a go at something along these lines too, with her permission of course :nod:

So this is my version of a minimal style drawing. I love this reference picture, but have no idea where it came from :( But I can say it is not mine, I just drew it :)
UPDATE: I found the ref - www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=318+…

Materials this time:
A4 Mellotex, the drawing is about 8"x9"
Graphite pencils - 2H, 2B, 4B, 6B
Erasers
Tortillion
Time - About 8 hours or so

Print available in my shop - www.etsy.com/shop/BrighteyesAr…

Thank you very much for looking :love:

I also used this reference before for a painting

This is a drawing of the very beautiful Kelly Eden :iconkellyeden: Her picture has been the reference for the first months project of our new group :icondraw-along:
Reference -

I decided not to draw the whole image and just took a part of it to focus on, but the My Little Ponies on her corset were too cute to leave out, so there they are :giggle:

Materials:
A4 Mellotex
Graphite (H, HB, B, 4B and 8B)
Pink Faber Watercolour pencil unwatered
Eraser
Soft brush
Time: I think around 20-22 hours

The whole thing seems to have a bit of a pink tint to it, i dont know why, I think its the work of my scanner :shrug:

Thank you for looking :heart:

There are some WIPs here if anyone likes these things -

EDIT: I got some advice from someone who thought the pink coloured parts could do with a bit of brightening. I've played around a little bit again as its a wee bit brighter in real life. So, the pink now looks like it does on paper but the tint over everything, i dont know why its there and dont know how to get rid of it :(

Graphite pencils 2H, 2B and 4B both wooden and mech
Blue tac and Eraser
Tissue
Tortillion
A3 Canson Bristol Board (most horrible paper ever!!!)

Thank you for having a look :heart:

I love this reference and it was calling on me to draw it right away :) I don't actually know where it came from, it was a random google search, it's not my photo though :no:

EDIT - I found the link finally! www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=Adam…

Materials this time:
Extra Smooth Bristol (The drawing measures about 8"x8")
Graphite - 2H, HB, 2B, 4B and 6B
Erasers
Blue Tac
Tissue
White Gel Pen
Time - About 10-11 hours

Print available in my shop - www.etsy.com/shop/BrighteyesAr…

Thank you for having a look :heart:

I have some WIPs if anyone likes these things

NOTE: I know some of you lovely dA friends get a bit miffed about the Black&White Club rejecting art, so I thought I'd share the reason this one was declined :) The highlight on her nose is too white ('tis the paper and my scanner, it's just like that, I didn't do a thing) the highlights that look like glitter are distracting (um, they were put there on purpose) and the eyes are unapportioned (that's great to know, I though they looked about right). So there you have it :P Another one bites the dust :crying:

I recently watched Dorian Gray and Ben is just soooo handsome and charismatic .... I had to draw him, this one and I have another lined up too :)

I've been drawing this for ages, little bits here and little bits there, I think I lost the plot for a while.

Also, this started out as graphite, but is now a big mixture of graphite, carbon and pastel :$

Materials:
Graphite Pencils - Wooden and Mechanical (HB to 8B, the 8B is now dead)
Carbon Pencil 6B, also dead
White Pastel
Erasers (I found an eraser that gets rid of 8B pencil!!!!!!! Awesome)
Hahnenuhle Nostalgie A4 paper (that is why the image is kinda grainey, my scanner is not friends with it yet, or maybe its the operator :D )
Time: Not sure about 6-7 hours or so

ATC (64mm x 89mm)

This is my part of an ATC trade with the very lovely :icondreamarian:

Our theme was True Blood and I finally (after binning 4 previous to this one) decided I'm happy with this one. It's so tiny!

It's not scanned very well :sniff: It looks better in real life Simone .... promise :D

Materials:
Graphite - 2H, 2B and 4B, wooden and mech
Blue Tac
Mellotex
Time: About 4/5 hours or so

Thank you for taking a look :heart:
Paula

Details - A bit blurry but at least a little closer -

This one is mine all mine :evillaugh: How awesome is Simone, she got three perfect and detailed portraits onto her card :la:

I absolutely love this reference of Liv Tyler. Hopefully a more minimal approach works with it :aww:

I'm not very good with scanning and stitching, so I'm a little sad that this doesn't really do my drawing any justice, but I tried my best and this is as good as I can get it :ashamed:

Materials this time:
A3 Canson Bristol Board :bleh:
Graphite (Wooden and Mech) 2H, 2B, 4B and 6B
Erasers
Tortillion
Time: About 11 hours

Print available in my shop - www.etsy.com/shop/BrighteyesAr…

Thank you very much for having a look :love:

I have WIPs here - and details here -

Also, the lovely *Ilojleen is drawing this same reference, once she has finished, I'll pop a link in here, her's is looking fantastic :la:

NOTE: I don't really know for sure where the minimal type style drawings originated, but as I said in my last minimal drawing, *IleanaHunter is the person I admire most for this style, so credit goes to her from me. Hopefully a bit of me is still in here though :fingerscrossed:

September Draw Along WIP - I'll add more here as I go along.

So about 4/5 hours so far. Sorry about the crappy photograph :( It's A3 and I didn't want to stitch the WIP's together but I will for the final drawing :)

WIP 1 and 2 - I think about 9-10 hours on it so far and I'm guessing about halfway there :D

WIP3 - This one is my third and final WIP. I think I have about another 8 hours or so to get this finished so hopefully in a couple of days :eager: Again, sorry about the really poor quality photo, the final will be scanned and much clearer :nod:
