Tribute to my mother - Final by Shouclak Tribute to my mother - Final by Shouclak
Hi everybody :)

Finally, it's completed :)

I will buy a frame this weekend and I will offer the drawing to my mom this sunday :) I hope she will like the final drawing !

I don't know yet what will be my next drawing, maybe my girlfriend like in my 3th drawing but with a more dynamic pose with more expression.
I'm not totally satisfied with his first portrait so I will try to give my best for the next one :).
It will be probably a 16x20 drawing on Strathmore 500 Bristol smooth.


"Tribute to my mother (Final)" :

Size : 11x14 Canson Bristol Smooth
Material : 0.5mm 2B, 2H and 0.3mm HB mechanical pencils and 9B wooden pencil
Working time : 40 hours

Thanks for all your comments and critics !

This is right up there beside, if not in front of, Colville and Wyeth- nothing but Love itself shines from this rendering- it is so far beyond mere photography. I am permanently moved.Merci Beaucoups!

I think it's really charming, the tenderness in it really shows. For a 1st portrait, it's quite amazing!

I was talking of my first portrait of my girlfriend called "Sexy Mama" ;) The tribute to my mother was in fact my 5th drawing :) Sorry for the confusion in my drawing comment !

By the way, thanks a lot for your comment :)
