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

So this image for the main part of my drawing is the poster for The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and I've added a mirror frame and noose. If you've seen the movie you'll know why :) The reference can be found on the front page of the #Draw-Along group.

Materials this time:
Graphite pencils 2H, 2B and 4B both wooden and mech
Blue tac and Eraser
Tissue
Tortillion
A3 Canson Bristol Board (most horrible paper ever!!!)
Time: About 22-23 hours, something around there

Thank you for having a look :heart:

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 :(

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:

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:

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

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:

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:
