This was soooo much fun to do. I did this drawing as a draw-along with the very talented :iconjustabeautifuldream: this is the link to her beautiful drawing please take a look, they have turned out so different .. i love that!

We had already drawn a picture , unknowingly, from the same amazing photographers gallery, so got chatting and decided to do it again and hopefully learn from each other and also see how differently we interpret the image. I have to say I was the one who learnt the most this time ... thank you :)

This is the original photo I was given permission from :iconvalentinakallias: to draw from her gallery. It is truly amazing and please have a look if you haven't already done so. It's very orignial and inspirational.

Details: I think this took me around 7 hours or so to draw, on and off. It may have been a little more or a little less. It's drawn on A4 Bristol Board with graphite (HB, 2B, 4B and 8B). I used tissue, tortillions, erasers (many kinds).

I always appreciate any comments or feedback :hug:

EDIT: Changed the original photo to a scan.

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

:pointr: media: Koh-I-Noor pencils: FB - 6B, a kneaded and a regular eraser, a glue :lol:

About the drawing
I'm not sure what I should tell about this drawing... Well. First of all, I was a bit insecure about submitting it on the Internet. Why? Because it's not an ordinary, usual portrait I post. It's drawn from my imagination!
It was the first time I tried to draw a realistic yet imaginative portrait. My aim was to draw a pretty, dark-haired, smirking girl. I guess I achieved only two of them :lol:
I have never been good at drawing men from imagination, even in my childhood sketches, boys weren't equally well drawn as girls. That's why I decided to make a portrait of a woman, additionally, I believe it's easier to draw girls. The choice of dark hair was pretty obvious, I'm very keen on drawing dark, long hair :) I figured it'd be nice to add a rose in her her. That's the only thing that has been drawn from an existing photograph. Can't find a link to this photo anymore -.-

The rose. Originally it was drawn with a red coloured pencil. However, I hatred the result >.< It looked flat and fake. Decided to draw it again on the other piece of paper and glue it onto the red rose. That's why you might notice a small difference between the flower and the rest of the portrait. I like it more right now, tho. The eyes. They might appear too small for you, it's because they are a bit closed. On the other hand, they are too wide. The chest. I had completely no idea how to draw it, the collarbones, her neck and the rest :lol: Hope it turned out acceptably.

But... not sooo bad as for the first time... right? ^^;


I'm looking for a title or a name for her. Any ideas? :) Some Spanish name maybe? I'll choose the nicest title. [I made up my mind and chose a pretty common name that I've always liked] Please remember about commenting whether you like the drawing or not :aww:

Thanks in advance :iconpinklilyplz:

About the drawing
This Amy Winehouse portrait has been commissioned*. The funny thing is I wanted to draw her from the same photo about two years ago, but didn't do it in the end, so I was glad about this commission. I wasn't a huge fan of Amy and I didn't become one after her death [as many people did O_o -> mainhg.demotywatory.pl/uploads… ], but since I saw her for the first time I've been fascinated by a few great songs of Amy's and her look: a specific make-up: giant lines on the eyelids and a giant hairdo. She also had beautiful eyes.
When I heard about her death, I can't say I was suffering from sorrow, but I was sorry for her. It's a pity that such a talented person couldn't overcome her demons and died so young.

I've been struggling with this drawing as all sheets of A3-sized paper I have are a lil' bit slippery. Drawing on it isn't easy and I can't use my usual technique of shading as it doesn't work :| Well, I have to buy new paper.
The part I always love to draw - hair - was the worst here :lol: The easiest part was the background. I drew the window frame and the wall behind Amy's back in a few minutes. "How come? Such a complicated texture?", you ask. Yep. I put the drawing on the textured tiling, started shading and the texture on the window frame and the wall turned out at once :dummy: Depsite of difficulties, I like the final result. Hope you do, too :aww:

Thank you for the feedback in advance, I appreciate it :icontardglompplz:

About the drawing

The couple that has been portrayed here, is John Taylor, the guitarist of the band called Young Guns, and his fan, Karolina. The drawing had been commissioned by Karolina's friend, Monika. The reference photo was a real one, it wasn't a photomanipulation from two pictures.
It was a very pleasant portrait to draw :aww: I enjoyed trying out drawing a new texture - I meant the texture of his hoodie. I'm happy their faces didn't turn out flat as it sometimes happens to me, because of the low quality and contrast of the reference photo and [this one was very nice, big and sharp].
This was the last commission I had to draw! :iconflowerdanceplz: Dobby is freeeeee! :XD:

Added later:
John saw my drawing! :happybounce:
