Great, inspiring work you do! Reply I really like this picture too! I like the perspective, his expression, and how left space above him. His collar makes it seem like he is well to do and not homeless. I want to know the story. Did you ask a homeless man to draw his portrait or did you take a picture? On a separate note I am so impressed by how detailed and full of depth your drawings are, but not only that how persistent you are with them! How are you posting these every other day! That’s amazingly dedicated! How long do these take you to draw? On an additional separate note thank you for also checking my stuff out! Reply The photo comes from Lee Jeffries, an amazing photografer from Great Britain, who makes photos from homeless people. I’ve used more from his pictures for my homeless man drawings. And on the other note, I need up till 8 hours to finish a drawing, depending on the amount of black. And I still have a “normal” 9-5 job on the side. I alway try to finish two drawings a week, but I’m lucky when I finish on. Cheers! Reply This is a good choice for your style of illustration, I like that you chose a homeless man. In some ways it is more powerful than the celebrities. I see where you also do a full time work job, Do you anticipate going full time with your illustrations? This image has very nice line work too, and stands out. Do you use the pen to fill the background? Good work. Reply Starting in June I’m gonna work less in my current job so I can focus more on my drawings. I hope that with time my drawings can support me so I can do it all day every day. And yeah I use the pen to fill in the background. The good thing about the Rotring Rapidograph is that they come in diferent sizes. A 0,8mm is great to fill in bing chuncks, but you have to go over them twice to get the contrast right. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
