What Is A Portrait?

"A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant.

The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person.

For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer."

We are proud to present our "Sunshine Contest"- Winner: :iconanthony-woods:

Portrait-Love: Please introduce yourself.

Anthony-Woods: I am Anthony Woods, I am 25, live in the UK in a lovely village called North Fambridge and I love pencil drawings!

:heart:… :heart:

Portrait-Love: By having a look into your gallery we can see, that you are an awesome drawer.
So please tell us how you come into this. And is it just a hobby, an addiction or your profession?

Anthony-Woods: I decided to draw pencil portraits when I was about 19, and a friend asked me if I wanted to do a hand made present for Christmas instead of buying something, so the only thing I knew I was any good at was drawing, so I drew her the Audrey Hepburn picture. This was the first proper portrait I had ever done, at school I was totally put off art, as they just made me do things I didnt want to do, I didnt draw a single portrait at school! But after doing this piece I loved it so much that it became more of a hobby and I just kept drawing more and more! Now after a few years in graphic design, I have just (in March this year) taken the plunge to take up my art as a full time profession.

:heart:… :heart:

Portrait-Love: When do you started drawing? What are your favorite characters to draw? Why?

Anthony-Woods: I have been drawing all my life really, but only the portrait side of things since 19. I think my favourite characters to draw are the darker pieces with lots of character to them such as my recent drawing of Batman, I love these as they are great fun to draw and to capture the mood and intensity of the character in the work, you can really get into these type of pictures.

:heart:… :heart:

Portrait-Love: How long do you need for a drawing?

Anthony-Woods: I usually spend between 50 to 80 hours on my drawing, they usually take me a week or just over a week to complete.

:heart: :heart:

Portrait-Love: Which character will be your next drawing? Why?

Anthony-Woods: My next character I am working on is Iron Man. I am drawing this for an exhibition I am going to be doing at a comics and collectables store called Red Sun, hopefully the people in there will like it!

:heart:… :heart:

Portrait-Love: Is it possible to buy your work?

Anthony-Woods: And yes, all my work is for sale, as are prints of various sizes and finishes :)

:heart: :heart:

Anthony-Woods: Just want to say I am super flattered to have won the competition and very flattered as there were so many amazing entries, thank you!! :D
