I'm doing a looong drawing of my daughter, Hope, and I don't like looong drawings, so I thought I'd break it up with this sketch of Sharif Abdur-Rahim, basketball player for the Sacramento Kings.

The pencil was my new pentel 0.3 (so much better than the crappy koh-i-noor - the worst pencil I've ever boought) with HB lead (can't seem to find any other for 0.3) and marker paper. It's terribly flimsy and not really suitable for drawing, but not quite as bad as you'd think.

Your daughter looks an awful lot like a black man =) haha. I guess that was a mistake.

I really like your gallery. You aren't doing celebrity portraits like everybody else (I find that very dull to look at), but instead you have real people with real faces and real emotion. Very cool stuff.

Thankyou - in real life, she looks nothing like a 6ft 9 in, black man, but I can see how she might look like that in this picture :)

Funny you should say that, I've been thinking recently about doing a celebrity portrait. Oh dear. Well - if I do that, you'll just have to close your eyes. :)

And poor Sharif - we're talking about him as though he wasn't a celebrity. Sharif - if you're reading this, you are a celebrity and a highly underrated player.

haha. Yeah, sometimes I draw kids and they turn out to be black men, too =) Well, celebrity or not, I'm sure whatever you do will definately be different from the norm, and I'd love to see it. :+devwatch:

Thanks April. I find them so much more fun than working on a long peice. I'm trying to force myself to though ... :)
