Well, as you can see, I’ve begun the drawing of my brother. The photo that it is taken from was of such fine quality that it makes it easier to get more detail onto the paper. Gotta long way to go though! I really don’t know how much time is in it at this point, I tend to get lost in time when doing these things.
Today I am confined to the house as I have a brutal case of bronchitis. So, I decided to work on the computer as well as to start work again on some past due projects.
One of which is a portrait of my little brother. I had been given a really cool black and white photo of him a couple decades ago and did a portrait of him from it. I gave it to my dad who had it on his wall until his death a few years ago. Now it hangs on my wall.
After my renewed vigor with the pencils, I’ve had a desire to re-do this portrait, to give it more life. While I won’t change the original itself, I did start a newer version of it. It should prove to be a challenge but fun. I’ll keep you posted on its progress. Here is a copy of the picture itself.
