this is one of my favorites! is it you? how do you do it from life or from picture? self-portrait?
nothought's avatar
this is one of my favorites as well.
it's not me, it's a photograph I found online. The beauty was already there, I just drew it.

It's very beautiful work. The boy's gaze is so intense (if I may presume that it is a boy!). A pretty famous Australian artist comes to mind, Cherry Hood, who acheives comparably startling effect, but her work is more like straight portraiture without your inventiveness.

Got to respect any drawing that still makes equal sense when mirrored. That's some attention to symmetry right there. So the WIPs were backwards?

thank you so much!
I didn't take the photo, it was done by Richard Burbridge, but I'm rather sure the model is female.

Wow, what a compliment!
I really appreciate it. The WIPs were backwards,
I took them with my webcam, and for some reason
my photo-program refused to save them 180º horizontally tossed.

Thanks once more.
